Video streaming service aggregator Reelgood reported that Happiest Season was the top movie streamed by its 2 million users on Dec. 1, as the holiday season gets underway.
Aggregators such as Reelgood are platforms that scan multiple streaming services and make their programming searchable and playable from a single site. This allows Reelgood to track which services its users are watching. Reelgood is free to use but requires separate accounts from each of the SVOD services that can be accessed there.
Happiest Season, which debuted on Hulu Nov. 25, stars Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis as a couple struggling to come out with Stewart’s character’s conservative family during Christmas.
The No. 2 title on Dec. 1 was perennial Christmas favorite Elf, the 2003 film starring Will Ferrell as a man who returns to civilization after being raised as one of Santa’s helpers.
No. 3 was another newcomer, Fatman, which stars Mel Gibson as an action-oriented Santa who has to defend himself against an assassin sent by an angry kid.
No. 8 on the list was Die Hard, which in addition to being an action classic is also an excellent Christmas movie.

- Happiest Season
