HBO TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH ALL EIGHT INSTALLMENTS OF THE

HARRY POTTER FILM FRANCHISE, AVAILABLE NEW YEAR’S DAY

 

New York, NY (November  9, 2018) — Starting January 1st, 2018, the wizarding world will have a new home when all eight movies in the Harry Potter film franchise arrive on HBO, joining the hit prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is available now on HBO GO, HBO NOW, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.

This marks the first time that all nine films set in the fantastical wizarding world created by bestselling author J.K. Rowling will air on a single network, unedited and commercial-free. For viewers who prefer to stream their favorite movies, this will also be the first time the entire franchise is available on the same streaming service, with all nine films available to stream anytime on HBO GO and HBO NOW, in addition to HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.

The eight-film adaptation starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint has earned $7.7 billion in box office sales, the second-highest-grossing film franchise of all time. The seven-book series is distributed in over 200 territories, has been translated into 68 languages and has sold over 400 million copies all over the world.
