How to watch the Harry Potter movies online
Option 1: Binge
The entire suite of Harry Potter flicks has found itself a home on Binge. Right now, you can catch all eight movies on Foxtel's budget streaming service, along with a bunch of faves like Big Little Lies, Game of Thrones, Succession and more. From $10 per month (with a 14-day free trial and will be reduce to 7 days starting on the 3rd of October 2023), it's one of the cheapest (and easiest) ways to get your fix of magical mayhem.
You'll also find the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts reunion special calling Binge home.
Option 2: Foxtel Now
Foxtel Now is by far the most expensive - and therefore least recommended - option on our list, with packages starting from $25 per month, but for people who are already subscribed, you can watch every Harry Potter movie at no extra cost.
What about Harry Potter on Paramount Plus, Netflix, Disney Plus or Stan?
Fans of the Wizarding world will well know how quickly the rights for the series can apparate from one streaming service to another.
After being unceremoniously stripped from its library in early 2020, Netflix accio'd all eight Harry Potter flicks as of July 15, 2021, only to make them disappear again. Talk about a magic trick. As if you needed any more proof of Harry Potter's chaotic streaming service-jumping, Stan also dropped the entire series in 2022.
These days, the series can be found on both of the above services as well as Paramount Plus. Be sure to catch them while you can. And while it may seem that Disney Plus is home to every single one of our favourite childhood movies, you won't find the Harry Potter franchise there.

Option 3: Rent or buy
If you’ve got a smartphone, tablet, Chromecast, or Apple TV, you can rent or buy every Harry Potter movie through iTunes or Google Play. On both services, renting Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 4K will cost you $4.99, and purchasing it in 4K will cost you $14.99. It’s the same story for every subsequent Harry Potter movie if you’re looking to continue the binge.
The Harry Potter movies aren’t currently available on the PlayStation Store (sorry PlayStation 5 owners), but it is available to rent and purchase for Xbox and Windows users in the Microsoft Store at the same price as Google Play and iTunes, $4.99 to rent, and $14.99 to purchase.
Elsewhere, you can pick the franchise up through Amazon, Fetch and YouTube.
