What better way to celebrate our love of Christmas with a green and hairy bad guy who hates it? Based in Whoville, the Grinch plans to ruin Christmas by stealing all the presents and decorations - but watching Jim Carrey's hilarious representation of him certainly won't ruin ours. Here's how you can watch How The Grinch Stole Christmas online or on any device.

Stream The Grinch

How The Grinch Stole Christmas is available to stream as part of a NowTV Cinema subscription in the UK, for which a free trial is available. While it's not available on any hugely popular streaming services in the US, it is available to stream via Freeform

At the time of writing, The Grinch (2018 version - not the 2000 version we're focusing on here) isn't available to stream via Netflix, Amazon Prime or Disney+ - in fact, it disappeared from Netflix just before Christmas in 2020.

You can stream The Grinch via Amazon Prime, but at an additional cost: it isn't included with your Prime subscription.

Buy a digital copy of How The Grinch Stole Christmas

If you can't stream it and want to watch How The Grinch Stole Christmas now rather than wait for a DVD to arrive in the post, you can also purchase it in digital form for playback on any of your mobile devices or a PC or smart TV.

How The Grinch Stole Christmas can be bought from iTunes and Amazon at just £4.99/$4.99 in HD.

Rent a digital copy of How The Grinch Stole Christmas

Renting a digital copy of the Grinch is also possible, but the saving is minimal compared to buying it from iTunes and Amazon. 

It used to be possible to rent in standard definition, which was £1 cheaper, but when we checked Amazon, the only option was HD. The same goes for iTunes: you may as well buy it.

Buy How The Grinch Stole Christmas on DVD

You'd never believe The Grinch was 19, first released back in 2000, but fortunately you can still find it on DVD. We found The Grinch at Amazon for £4.99 on DVD and £7.60 on Blu-ray.
