If you're looking to add another movie to your holiday and Christmas traditions this year, consider enjoying Love Actually. While this is a go-to movie that can get anyone into the holiday spirit, it's not the easiest to find and watch. So, here's how to stream it from anywhere in the world this Christmas.

Love Actually follows the lives of eight very different couples that are all dealing with their love lives and challenges at the same time. These lives intertwine during the busy and stressful month leading up to, and during, Christmas. It takes place in London, England, and has heartthrobs like Hugh Grant and Liam Neeson. Not to mention star actors including Laura Linney, Emma Thompson, and Keira Knightley, to name a few.

The Christmas season can be frantic, stressful, yet full of love, which is exactly what you'll get from this holiday cult-classic. Here's how you can watch it with ease.

Love Actually Movie: When and where?

Love Actually is streaming on several different services, but all of them will cost you. So far, we're seeing the movie available on Amazon Prime Video for $3.99 which you can stream whenever, wherever. The experience is best on a FireTV device. It's also on Vudu, Apple TV, iTunes, Google Play, and even YouTube, but you'll have to rent it from any of those services.

Is Love Actually on Netflix?

Unfortunately, no this tear-jerker is not available on Netflix. The company actually removed it back in 2018, and it hasn't returned yet. However, that's likely because regular cable TV channels and other streaming services are all fighting for viewers during the holidays, and want you to pay for it.

How to Watch Love Actually online in the U.S.

Those in the United States can watch this ultimate romantic comedy a few different ways, even without Netflix. Your best bet is Amazon Prime Video, although even with a subscription it looks like it'll still cost $3.99 to enjoy.

Additionally, you can find it on Vudu, iTunes, Google Play, and probably even Redbox during the month of December.

How to Watch Love Actually online in the UK

Hugh Grant and Liam Neeson fans living outside the US still have options. Just like last year, your best chance of watching this wild love story is with Sky Cinema or Amazon Prime Video. You'll need to be a subscriber to either of those, and you'll need the "Cinema" plan with Sky to get the movie. Then, Amazon UK has Love Actually but it's not free and has a rental fee.

How to Watch Love Actually online in Australia

And finally, those in Australia can stream Love Actually online too, but again, not from Netflix. You can stream it with the service BINGE, Stan, or from Amazon Prime Video. As the holiday season continues we could see it appear on Foxtel or other TV providers, so we'll have to wait and see.

Basically, no matter where you are in the world the easiest way to watch Love Actually this holiday season is with Amazon Video. And remember, you can rent it on iTunes with Apple TV, or from Google Play as a last resort.
