Netflix removal of 'The Grinch' leaves many subscribers upset

Christmas is around the corner, and everyone is blooming with festive spirits. It is also the time when people relax while watching their favorite Christmas-themed movies.

Movies like The Grinch, Home Alone, Arthur Christmas, Tangerine, and so on are usually some of the top picks for many people. However, it becomes quite an issue when major streaming platforms stop showing these movies.

A similar issue occurred with YouTube some time ago when ‘Rick and Morty’ season 6 went missing from the platform. But in this case, it seems that Netflix has removed one of the most loved Christmas fantasy comedy films.

Netflix removed ‘The Grinch’

Several users (1,2,3,4,5,6) are disappointed to find that ‘The Grinch’ movie has been removed from Netflix.


The fact the grinch isn’t on Netflix when it’s the best Christmas movie of all time is wild

Why did Netflix take off The Grinch?! 😭😭 that’s my comfort Christmas movie 🥺

A number of reports on Twitter recount the dismayed state of subscribers upon finding the removal of their comfort movie, especially during the Christmas holiday season.

Some Netflix users are now asking the platform to bring back the movie and even questioning as to why it wasn’t there in the first place. It seems that the 2000 film ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ is also missing from the platform.

Honestly, it is quite absurd for Netflix to remove one of the favorite Christmas movies of all time, while it is available on other platforms.


No official word in sight

Netflix hasn’t commented on the issue where the platform removed ‘The Grinch’ movie.

So, affected users can either wait for the team to bring back the movie or head to other platforms (if they have any) to watch it.
