Streaming the Harry Potter movies online in Australia has been about as simple as finding your way to Platform 9¾. Occasionally, a streaming service will boast having the complete collection but then when you eventually get around to streaming it, they’ve been wingardium leviosa’d out of your watchlist. That's why we've rounded up all your options for catching Harry, Ron and Hermione's magical adventures in one place.

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 LiesGame of ThronesSuccession and more. From $10 per month (with a 14-day free trial), 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?

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 last June. 

And Paramount Plus streaming service may have epic blockbusters like The Lord of the Rings and The Dark Knight trilogy, but when it comes to our favourite boy wizard there's Filch - sorry - zilch opportunities to catch the Hogwarts Express.

And while is 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, YouTube, and Quickflix.
