The cast of Harry potter The franchise, which includes Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, will soon be reunited for a 20th anniversary special, coming to HBO Max on January 1.
As it’s eight days from December 24th, now is the time to start a big review of all eight movies if you want to have time to watch one a day from now until the special airs.
Unfortunately for fans, the eight films have a habit of moving from one streaming service to another with little to no notice.
Fortunately, the services that exchanged the Harry potter the specials between them seem to have reached a compromise that should satisfy most fans.
Where to watch Harry Potter movies online
In the United States, the eight films (i.e. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Second part) spent most of 2021 moving between two streaming services: Peacock and HBO Max.
The reasons for this are due to previous agreements Harry potter Warner Bros. studio has done with NBCUniversal to give it the rights to broadcast the films on its many TV channels.
Things got more complicated, however, when the two services launched streaming services, so both companies decided to simply alternate who was able to stream the movies.
Now, however, the companies seem to have come to a compromise that probably works best for fans. As of December 2021, HBO Max and Peacock both release all eight films.
Which service offers the cheapest way to watch movies?
Technically, Peacock. While viewers can’t watch the streamer’s free tier movies, the service costs a third of what HBO Max costs: $ 4.99 per month versus $ 14.99.
Both services technically offer a seven-day free trial, but you’ll need to sign up for HBO Max through Hulu to get one for this streamer.
HBO Max may be the more expensive option, but it offers others Potter content with the aim of drawing fans away from home cheaper movies.
HBO Max is the service broadcasting the reunion, and on January 1 is also launching a game show. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Houses Tournament, which for some reason is hosted by Helen Mirren.
