A study of 2,000 adults revealed there will be five TV conversations had – either discussing what to watch, or talking about something they have seen.
There will also be two arguments over what to watch – and dad will be most likely to keep hold of the TV remote.
As many as 37 percent said TV is the most important part of Christmas, including the Queen's Speech, and nearly two-thirds "couldn’t go without it".
One in ten admit to poring over TV guides for an hour or more planning what to watch.
And another 40 percent say scouring through the upcoming broadcasts to plan their TV viewing is one of their favourite parts of the season.
Deep Halder, head of TV/AV retail and content services at Samsung Electronics UK Ltd, which commissioned the survey, said: "Brits love to get the most out of their Christmas TV time, with 65 percent of people telling us they prefer staying in to watch TV over the festive period than going out.
"Families across the UK will soon be starting the much-anticipated conversations around what they'll be watching on their TVs this Christmas.
"And with the whole family to please, having a festive TV-watching plan is a great idea to get into the Christmas spirit, and avoid any festive TV arguments."
The study found bickering over what to watch will be the most common TV-related argument over the festive period.
But 22 percent will get annoyed if a family member chats while an important plot development is happening, while 19 percent get wound up by "channel hoppers".
It also emerged one in four will even stay glued to the TV whilst they eat their dinner on Christmas Day.
The Queen's Speech was deemed the biggest "must watch" TV event of the season, followed by classics like Only Fools and Horses and the festive Coronation Street episode.
Macaulay Culkin smash-hit Home Alone – more than 30 years old – is still Brits' favourite festive movie, picked by 30 percent of those polled, via OnePoll.
It was followed by Will Ferrell comedy Elf, selected by 25 percent, and beloved classic The Snowman.
Deep Halder added: "Samsung TV Plus – our exclusive service which offers Smart TV owners’ instant access to over 80 live and on-demand TV channels for free – is a perfect addition to guarantee endless entertainment options to keep the whole family happy."
