Is Harry Potter on Netflix? Where can you stream all the movies? Don't worry we will answer all your Potter questions!

Amazingly, the first time we saw set foot in Hogwarts on the silver screen was almost two decades ago... feel old yet?

J. K. Rowling's wizarding world has been a mainstay in British culture ever since. Whilst the magical world is being explored in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, the newer Eddie Redmayne films don't quite scratch the same itch as rewatching Harry, Ron and Hermione battle the dark forces of Voldemort.

If you have a craving for some classic fantasy fun, you're probably wondering how to watch Harry Potter in 2021, or whether Harry Potter is on Netflix. Don't worry, we've got the answers!

Is Harry Potter on Netflix?

The Harry Potter movies are available on Netflix in some regions, but they aren’t accessible in either the UK or US.  Read on for info on where you can find the Harry Potter saga online!

If you're in the mood to watch some other big shows and don't know whether your favorite show is on Netflix, check out our other viewing guides below:

How to watch Harry Potter in the US

Unfortunately, the only way to stream the Harry Potter movies right now is by renting them online, as they were removed from Peacock at the end of March 2021, and as of right now they haven't returned just yet.

As NBCUniversal still holds the TV and digital rights to the movies until 2025, Harry Potter movies found their home on Peacock, but they'll only be available on the platform in "windows", according to The Hollywood Reporter

Basically, this means all 8 movies will be added to and taken off the streaming platform on a relatively regular basis going forward. So, they'll probably return to Peacock in a little while!

When the Harry Potter movies were available to stream on Peacock, there was a little catch; the first four movies (up to Goblet of Fire) were available on the free tier. To watch from Order of the Phoenix onwards, you needed to pay at least $4.99 a month for Peacock Premium. 

To add to this confusion, you might remember that at one point the Harry Potter movies were a surprise addition to the HBO Max library when the service launched in 2020. However, that was a temporary arrangement between NBC and Warner Bros, and the whole Harry Potter saga was removed from HBO MAX just 90 days later. 

How to watch Harry Potter in the UK

To watch Harry Potter, you'll need to add Sky Cinema to your TV package, as the movies are regularly available as part of that package. Adding Sky Cinema to your regular package costs just £11, but it's always worth checking out Sky's latest deals to see if you can get a reduced price. 

All eight Harry Potter films were also recently available on NOW TV, although they were removed at the end of February 2021. Given its enduring popularity, there's a solid chance the franchise will return to the Sky-backed streamer at some point in the near future.

How to watch the Harry Potter films in order

Since Harry Potter's initial theatrical run ended a decade ago, you might want a refresher on how to watch the Harry Potter films in order. The correct order is:
