All 8 Harry Potter Movies Are Coming To HBO

Best news ever!

This is slightly embarrassing, but here goes nothing. I haven’t seen all the Harry Potter movies. And when I say all, I mean any.

I KNOW.

My only redeeming quality is that I did read some of the books. But because I didn’t see the films when they were released and they weren’t streaming anywhere, I pretty much would have had to buy them if I wanted to watch them. That is, until now.

Thanks to HBO, my sad tale will be told no longer—starting Jan. 1, 2018 all eight Harry Potter films will be aired on the network and added to the streaming service! (And I totally have HBO. Score!)

The movies will join “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the prequel Warner Bros. Pictures released a year ago that is already part of the HBO library. It marks the first time all nine films based on the books by author J.K. Rowling will air on a single network, unedited and commercial-free. It is also the first time the entire franchise is available on a streaming service—you’ll find them on HBO GO, HBO NOW and HBO On Demand.

“We are delighted to welcome the “Harry Potter” films to our catalogue of award-winning original programming and crowd-pleasing theatrical films,” Bruce Grivetti, executive vice president, business affairs and president, film programming said in a statement. “HBO has a long-standing reputation as the home of the best classic and recently released Hollywood movies, and having the “Harry Potter” franchise furthers our objective to bring quality entertainment to our subscribers across all of our platforms.”
