Some noted that elderly viewers may not be able to get streaming services. Others said that it was a tradition to watch these specials on broadcast TV every year.

I live in the country and have pretty crappy internet service. I do have directv but no streaming apps. I've been a fan of the peanuts holiday shows for years. Watched them as a child & with my kids but the tradition has died for my grand kids. So sad. Thanks no thanks Apple.
