Yule Log

Sling TV Will Now Turn Your TV Into a Fireplace

Christmas weekend is here and nothing says Christmas like a warm fireplace. Don’t worry if you don’t live in a house with a fireplace, Sling TV has you covered.

Recently Sling TV added two different fireplace or so-called yule log videos for you to enjoy a nice fire as you open presents or have a holiday party. You can find these videos by going to your MY TV tab in your Sling TV app. There, scroll down to the bottom and you will find a new row called Sling Extras with the on-demand videos.

If you cannot find that row, search for “Holiday Hearth” or “Christmas Eve Fireside” to find the videos.

Not a Sling TV subscriber?

Amazon has over a dozen Yule Log videos both free with Prime and for rent.

You can also find many on YouTube for those looking for other options, but you may need to search around a bit to find them.

So how do you stream during the holidays? Leave us a comment and let us know what you enjoy streaming as you celebrate.

    Noticed yesterday that the Roku Channel has a whole slew of free Christmas programming, which they are describing as The Best Christmas Channel Ever, which includes multiple fireplaces, music, scenic Holiday views, 60s Christmas commercials, etc. Pretty cool, and not an ad to be found.

      I like pretty much all yule logs, but the Roku Channel ones look exceedingly cheap to me. Like something a teenager could whip up on a PC in half an hour.

        I looked again and their ‘traditional’ yule log is pretty good. The rest are a novelty at best (cowboy and zombie apocalypse yule logs?!) — and there are ad breaks every 15 minutes.

        I just mentioned them because they were new.

        Everyone has their own version these days…Netflix, Hulu has some very professional “Christmas Scenics” that are nice, Prime offers fireplaces and some nice classic cartoon collections (“Rudolph etc).
        But, every year we seem to find the best collections of fireplaces and Christmas music can still be found on YouTube..

    Tried it last week and was enjoyable. Last year for the first time I set up a 32″ tv in the bottom of my 120 yr old piano and built a fake fireplace around the tv using the piano as the mantle. I connected a roku and then turned on one of the many Youtube firplaces, some just with the crackling of the fire and other that also have carols. It really was pretty and seemed like a real fireplace. I also placed a space heater nearby that gave the effect of the fireplace throwing off heat. I’ll be setting that up again in the next day or so. Merry Christmas.

    Hulu’s got a bunch of ‘Scenics’ in the Holiday category, including 30 minutes of a group of dogs absolutely destroying some Christmas decorations, heh. But my favorite is just a toy train circling a tree while the fireplace crackles in the background. Sometimes the simplest is the best.

    Netflix does too.
