Via the Freevee portion of its platform, Prime Video has delved into the archives to make almost 50 festive movies available to stream while you wrap presents — including the all time classic It's a Wonderful Life.

If festive features aren't quite your tempo, then John Krasinski returns for a third series of action-thriller show Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.
