Disappointing news for those Harry Potter fans who rely on streaming services for their primary source of entertainment. Universal, the ones in charge of the franchise, had a deal previously with HBO MAX, which transferred to Peacock in October; that deal was short-lived.
Society is pro-streaming, and if fans don’t own a copy of the eight-film sensation, they may want to add the bundle to their Christmas list now. Another option, is to reinstate cable TV because Cinemablend reports NBCUniversal currently has rights and plans to air the Harry Potter series alongside Fantastic Beasts on Syfy and USA Network.
Purchasing the series either physically or digitally would be the cheapest option if your seeking to relive your time at Hogwarts; however, if you prefer a variety and want a little extra bang for the same buck, then TV service is still an excellent option for today’s viewers. Of course, it is unlikely for Harry Potter to remain off any streaming service for long, being that it remains one of the most famous film series of all time. Also, with the release of Fantastic Beasts 3 due on November 12, 2021, Harry Potter and the World of Witchcraft and Wizardry will once again be trending and in-demand.
