If you type "C-h l" (the letter ell, not the digit one), you will see
that Emacs on a TTY sees an unshifted arrow key in this case.  That's
because text terminals generally don't distinguish between shifted and
unshifted arrow keys.

So Emacs simply cannot support this functionality on a TTY.  A
workaround is to bind the same command to different keys.
