It wouldn’t feel like Christmas without watching How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

I’m sure you have searched for the movie on Netflix but haven’t had any luck which is why you’ve ended up here, right?

As it stands, How The Grinch Stole Christmas isn’t available on the UK Netflix and in a handful of other countries. That feels pretty Grinch-like of Netflix.

In this article, I will be showing you how to access How The Grinch Stole Christmas on Netflix wherever you live in the world – yay you!

All it will take is a few clicks of a button and you’ll be watching Christmas’ antihero in all his glory.

Where is The Grinch Stole Christmas available?

As I mentioned previously, the movie isn’t available on the UK Netflix library.

To watch How The Grinch Stole Christmas on Netflix, you will need to have access to the US Netflix or one of the other handful of countries where it is available.

But don’t worry, gaining access to the US Netflix library isn’t as difficult as it sounds.

It’s so simple that even my Grandparents could do it.

But, just in case I have provided a straight forward step by step guide to get you set up. But first, let’s cover some of the basics.

What you need to stream in your country

To unlock Netflix libraries from all around the world, including the US Netflix, you need to use a VPN app.

A VPN works by sending your internet traffic through a server located in another region, e.g. the US. This will help you trick Netflix into giving you access to that region’s Netflix library and most importantly, letting you watch How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

My favourite VPN for streaming is ExpressVPN, their connection speeds are faster than Santa’s sleigh, and you’ll stream 4K TV with ease.

You might wish to check out NordVPN and Surfshark VPN, they are both brilliant VPNs for streaming, but you’re free to choose!
