One of Jim Carrey's delineated roles as The Grinch can be seen on Netflix; hence once again, in 2021, only a chosen few Netflix users. Here is where The Grinch Stole Christmas is on Netflix for 2021, why it's only available to some users and where it's live on other platforms.

Let's give you a little backstory for those who have never been commencing with How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Based on the well-known character in the famous Dr Suess story, the 2000 film saw Jim Carrey play the green figure who despises Christmas (and happiness). The character also got a gleam movie back in 2018. 

There are many films families flock to each Christmas, with this adaptation being a particular favorite. It ranks sixth in Rotten Tomato's best Christmas movies of all-time list. According to What's on Netflix lists, it ranks as America's second-liked Christmas film.

While Netflix in the US saw How The Grinch Stole Christmas for each Christmas from 2017 through 2020, it was dismissed in January 2021 and has yet to be added back.

Its long occupancy on Netflix was odd, given Netflix tends to only get movies from other distributors in one 1 to 3-month stints. In case you didn't know, Universal Pictures distributed the movie.

With Christmas movies, they tend only to get them in the summer months when the license is not valuable. That's why this is astonishingly surprising Netflix has managed to keep hold of it for so long.

Eventually, we expect it to leave and become potentially a permanent fixture of Peacock (owned by Universal parent Comcast), but that's yet to come to pass. It's unavailable on any streaming terminus (at last on SVOD) during 2021.
