Stream every 'Harry Potter' film on HBO starting January 1st

Stream every 'Harry Potter' film on HBO starting January 1st”

The cable network has acquired the rights to air all eight movies in the fan-favorite hit film series, six years after the final movie was released to theaters. On Jan. 1, HBO will officially welcome all eight Harry Potter movies - in addition to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is already available on the channel.

HBO also happens to be owned by Time Warner, the same parent company that owns Warner Bros., which produced the Harry Potter films. That's right. You'll have nine Harry Potter films available at your streaming leisure.

"We are delighted to welcome the Harry Potter films to our catalog 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.

To celebrate the announcement, HBO released a short, animated video featuring the Marauder's Map that Harry receives in Prisoner of Azkaban. They will also air back-to-back on New Year's Day - commercial free, this is HBO after all - to ring in the new year.

To welcome the franchise properly, HBO will host a marathon starting on the morning of January 1 and ending the following day.

The marathon will end in the early morning of January 2, and starting that night, HBO Family will air all nine films in order - one each day at 8 p.m ET/PT.

And if you miss this marathon? Grab a butterbeer and a spot on the couch, because the Hogwarts Express will be 'round to pick you up soon.
