How to watch Mrs Brown’s Boys Christmas Specials 2020 online from anywhere

Since 2012, Brendan O’Carroll’s beloved sitcom has delivered two Christmas specials a year: becoming as traditional as turkey, the Queen’s Speech, and a post-lunch snooze. Now potty-mouthed Agnes Brown is back as the Irish matriarch and mother of five, bringing us the mirth and merriment we desperately need after this accursed 2020. Our guide below explains how to watch the Mrs Brown’s Boys Christmas Specials online from anywhere, and completely FREE too.

Past episodes have seen Mrs Brown stage an unorthodox take on the Nativity (including a rocket-propelled Baby Jesus), and riding a remote-control Christmas tree like a bucking-bronco. And, while the new specials take place against the backdrop of Coronavirus, don’t expect the Browns’ antics to be any less raucous.
