Christmas is one time of the year where the entire family gets to sit together, laugh together and watch movies together. Usually, people don’t sit around the television to watch the latest movie or series. Instead decades old classics like The Santa Clause, Miracle on 34th street, The Nightmare Before Christmas & How the Grinch Stole Christmas are the real charm of Christmas.
But well oh well! Netflix has done something so sinister that even Jesus won’t forgive them. Netflix has removed “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” on December 1st, could they not wait until Christmas?

The classic Christmas movie is removed from Netflix since December 1st and is only available on US Netflix which is a major turn off, considering the whole Netflix vs Disney Plus head to head rivalry.
So there’s only one way to watch it if you’re outside the US and that is the use of a VPN service.

Here’s what fans are saying on Twitter
As you can see many fans discovered it already themselves, despite no announcement being made:

Here’s a third fan complaining:
It’s the 1st of December, and I notice you have just removed The Grinch from Netflix in Australia.
This is serious- I mean the good one, the @JimCarrey one. WTF!?
Someone’s heart’s two sizes too small!
