How the Grinch Stole Christmas has been a Christmas classic for almost 20 years. Starring Jim Carrey, little Cindy Lou Who and Max the dog, UK viewers will be flooding to Netflix for a hit of their favourite festive flick this 2019.

It’s strange to think that there are still people out there who have never watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas. In fact, one of the most-searched Christmas questions on Google every December is ‘who plays The Grinch?’

Of course, for the Xmas pros among us, the answer is painfully obvious. We Christmas movie veterans know everything from Cindy Lou Who actress, Taylor Momsem, to the trivia that Jim Carrey spent a total of 92 days covered in green-dyed yak hair and make-up.

But whether you’re heading into The Grinch for watch 100 or buckling up for your first wacky adventure with Lou Lou Who and Mayor Augustus Maywho, you’re going to want an easily streamable and HD version to set Christmas 2019 off smoothly.

Updated weekly, here’s everything you need to know about watching the 2000 Grinch film from the Freeview TV guide to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Now TV, Sky Cinema and more.

Is How the Grinch Stole Christmas on Netflix in 2019?
