Harry Potter Is NOT Coming to Netflix (Unless You’re in France or Belgium)

After multiple messages this week asking if Harry Potter is coming to Netflix UK or Netflix USA this week we thought we should clarify this rumour in the hope that our social media inboxes will be slightly quieter… It’s been bandied around the internet that all 8 Harry Potter films, based on the popular books by J.K. Rowling, are heading to Netflix around the globe however this simply isn’t true. The rumour seems to have started from a tweet by Netflix France and Belgium (see below) that plays the Harry Potter music and then says, translated, “The full 8 films of Harry Potter, 1st November”.

Licensing agreements differ all over the world with most Warner Brothers films, such as Harry Potter, sticking to Sky and NowTV in the UK and HBO in America. The full set of films have, however, previously been on Netflix in Australia and New Zealand and a couple of them in Mexico, Argentina and Brazil but there is no news as to whether they will return on November 1st. As far as we can see it is only France/Belgium that are getting the Harry Potter movies on November 1st – C’est magique.

Advanced warning: any messages on 1st November asking where Harry Potter is will be met with incredibly sarcastic replies!

    1. Not pointing the finger at these movies or the whole HP thing, but there are loads of enormously financially successful popular things that are overrated, that got to where they got through marketing convincing enough people, then they get carried along by the sheep crowd.
      But, if you only measure these things in money, then you’re probably part of that crowd and would never understand.

      As a Chef, most popular brands of food are just carried by hype and sheep in the UK, and aren’t really like what they should be, or as good as some other brands or non-branded. And not a patch on home/restaurant made.

    1. I think most that want them, have them. Essential collectables if HP is your thing really. Same goes for all the big movie franchise collections.

      Wouldn’t really send droves taking up Netflix subscriptions screaming, “ooh I’m sooo excited. I’ve never seen them before”
