How to Watch The Great Christmas Light Fight Online


When people think of the Christmas season, one of the things that instantly pop into a lot of heads is Christmas lights. These bright and beautiful displays are ones that a lot of people look forward to every holiday season, and the competition to see who has the best display has become somewhat of a festive sport.

This is something that television network ABC has decided to capitalize on by bringing us a program called “The Great Christmas Light Fight” for the last few years. With many TV viewers eagerly anticipating the return of this program on December 4th, there is a bit of a scramble to see what TV streaming services can allow you to watch the series online.

The Great Christmas Light Fight features four families from all around the country with amazing Christmas displays. They compete for the Light Fight trophy and a $50,000 prize. Moreover, throughout the season the families can win a total of $300,000.


We are here to aid in your endless search today! Join hosts Taniya Nayak and Carter Oosterhouse for the latest season. The following are a list of streaming services that are available in which you can view The Great Christmas Light Fight online, so you can just worry about sitting down and enjoying the festivities. Here’s how to watch.


Popular streaming service Hulu is one of the easiest ways to view the Great Christmas Light Fight, with the service having the option to watch the show both live and on-demand. This even includes seasons from past years, so you can get all caught up if need be.


If you don’t already have Hulu, just go to ( and follow the on-screen instructions to sign-up. If you sign-up right now you will not only be eligible for a free month of the service but also will be able to take advantage of a special holiday rate of $5.99 a month after your free trial ends.

Sling TV

Sling TV has become one of the most popular alternatives to traditional cable packages as the service includes a number of popular television networks at a fraction of the cost. These networks, in most cases, also include the ABC channel, allowing you to stream the Light Fight live as it happens.

To sign-up, go to the sling website and click on the blue “FREE TRIAL” button. From here, follow the instructions such as choosing your channel packages, extras, and location. In the case of the ABC network, your location is the most important information you will enter, as not every area is eligible to stream the ABC network.


With DirecTV NOW many of the channels that you love from cable television are able to be streamed live online and without a cable subscription. This is perfect for the cord cutter who still wants to have access to the channels they love from DirecTV, and without the need for satellite.

After you sign-up for DirecTV NOW (which you can do by going to their website or downloading the app onto your Roku, Amazon Fire, iPad, Android, or other connected devices), simply search for the ABC network. This will get you all set up to watch the Great Christmas Light Fight when it airs on December 4th. Keep in mind, however, that much like Sling TV, the ABC network will only be available on DirecTV NOW in certain markets. 

DirecTV NOW offers a FREE TRIAL so you can give the service a try and decide whether it’s right for you. It’s the perfect opportunity to stream The Great Christmas Light Fight and other holiday shows.


While the ABC App, which is available on most Smart devices, may seem like the most obvious way to view ABC’s Great Christmas Light Fight online, the service comes with a few drawbacks. First off, you will need a dedicated cable provider to use the service. Second, service for the ABC app is not available in all areas, and programming can even change depending on location.


Still, however, the ABC App is a convenient way to view the Great Christmas Light Fight when no other option is available and you are on the go. All you need to sign-up is to download the app from your device’s app store or go to the website. From here, enter the required information about your location and cable provider, and you should be good to go!
