How to watch the Harry Potter movies online in 2021
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 Lies, Game of Thrones, Succession 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.
Option 2: Netflix
After being unceremoniously stripped from its library in early 2020, Netflix has finally accio’d all eight Harry Potter flicks as of July 15, 2021. That said, you might want to get in quick before they disappear again! There’s no free trial anymore, but you could easily pay $10.99 for a month membership, binge it all, then cancel if there’s nothing else to interest you.
Option 3: Stan
As if you needed any more proof of Harry Potter‘s chaotic streaming service-jumping, Stan also dropped the entire series in June. At $10 per month (and a 30-day free trial), it’s currently tied with Binge as the cheapest option on our list, but again, we’d recommend getting your marathon in early – who knows how long the movies will hang around.
Option 4: 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.
Option 5: Paramount Plus
This would be our number one pick for the cheapest way to watch the Harry Potter series, but since the brand-new Paramount Plus streaming service doesn’t officially launch until August 11. For $8.99 per month, you’ll get access to a bunch of Paramount blockbusters (think The Lord of the Rings and The Dark Knight trilogy) as well as shows like Dexter, NCIS and SpongeBob SquarePants.
Option 6: 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.
