For December, we’re expanding our monthly round-up of shows and films to include Comcast-NBCUniversal’s Peacock service. It’ll now be included monthly alongside Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Apple TV+, Paramount+, Hulu, and The Criterion Channel. If there are other U.S. streaming services you’d like to see added to our line-up, share a comment below.
The year may be wrapping up, but streamers aren’t slowing down their animation releases.
Also, a housekeeping note: streamers often announce new animation releases mid-month. This list only catalogs what the streamers announce at the beginning of the month, but when possible we try to update the schedule if there are mid-month announcements.
Here’s a look at the streaming animation release (in the U.S.) for the month of December. Scroll down for the full list.
