Fans Are Fuming As Netflix Removes The Grinch Just Before Christmas
Nothing steals Christmas away from you quite like your favourite festive film disappearing from Netflix - but for many people, that's exactly what's happened.
That's right, as most of us were putting up our trees yesterday, the Netflix gods decided to remove How The Grinch Stole Christmas from the streaming service.
The modern classic, starring Jim Carrey, is about a vengeful creature named The Grinch who wants to spoil Christmas for everyone in the town of Whoville. Well, my holiday is certainly spoiled - has Netflix gotten all antsy about people sharing passwords and decided to take revenge?
Fans who were hoping to get into the festive spirit while settling down to a December filled with Festival Bakes and Baileys have been left Grinch-less, with viewers in the UK, Australia and New Zealand all clocking that it's vanished from the service.
Some say it went on 30 November, some say 1 December - but one thing everyone agrees on is that it's a travesty.
And what else is there to do when you're annoyed about something than take to Twitter to voice your annoyance? Grinch fans have done just this. Via a lot of shouty capital letters, we can confirm that for some, Christmas really has been cancelled.
Luckily though, there is a potential solution that may make your Christmas less blue: the film is now available on Sky if you have access to the Sky Store.
Not only that, but it was also shown on Sunday (1 December) on ITV2, so hopefully some of you managed to get your fix of seasonal cheer.
