With so many distractions these days, a lot of people are missing out on great TV and they might not even know it! So here’s a list of my five can’t-miss shows this week on TELUS Optik TV™. With so many channels available, finding five shows is surprisingly tricky. So save some time, and start watching what’s good.

The holidays are taking over your TV this week. I’ve found the best Christmas programming that will definitely put you in the spirit. It’s the most wonderful time of the year – for television!

This is a special edition of Cake Wars! They are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Charlie Brown with cakes. I am hoping for one that is Snoopy’s house, to scale. But you’ll have to watch to see what they create. Check out TELUS Optik’s Living theme pack for more shows like this one.


Michael Buble’s Christmas in Hollywood (Special)
Thurs. Dec 10 at 6:00 PM

Everyone’s favourite Canadian crooner is back with another Christmas special. I would say Michael’s is the one you cannot miss. Comedy, singing and Christmas! He might as well be Mr. Christmas. Michael Buble is this generations Bing Crosby.


Christmas Incorporated (Movie)
Sat Dec 12 at 8:00 PM

If you are one of the people who has seen all of the Hallmark Christmas movies and can’t wait for the new ones each year – this one is for you! Canadian actress Shenae Grimes is a girl who believes in Christmas miracles and her boss is a Grinch. Put them together and you get movie magic. (Or at least a fun Hallmark classic.) Check out TELUS Optik’s Lifestyle & Beyond theme pack for more shows like this one.


Home Alone (Movie)
Sun Dec 13 at 8:00 PM

Christmas isn’t Christmas without watching little Kevin McCallister live alone in that giant house. My parents get nostalgic watching White Christmas, and I get nostalgic watching Home Alone.
