Every Harry Potter film is going to be available to stream in Australia
Muggles will finally have access to the world of Hogwarts on their TVs again.
Picture Dumbledore rushing up to Harry Potter in this iconic scene, with a twist. "Harry, Harry is the only way to watch your movies in Australia still to rent or buy them?"
"No sir," Harry replies.
"Are you absolutely sure?"
That's right, just like Harry's name mysteriously ending up in the Goblet of Fire, the film franchise has mysteriously been missing from streaming services in Australia. But that's no longer the case with the entire Harry Potter franchise set to come to both BINGE and Foxtel.
When can I stream Harry Potter in Australia?
How can I watch Harry Potter in Australia?
As mentioned above, all eight films will be landing on Foxtel and Foxtel Now first. Old school Foxtel iQ is costly. To watch Harry Potter you'll need the mandatory Foxtel Plus pack and the Movies HD package which equates to $69 a month.
For Foxtel Now, you'll need the base Essentials package and Movies pack which costs $45 a month.
Given that Harry Potter hasn't been on an Australian streaming service for at least 10 months, holding out just 6 more days shouldn't be too hard.
If you can manage to hold on then you'll be able to stream Harry Potter free for 14 days on BINGE.
Not only does BINGE have the benefit of a two-week free trial, but it's also far cheaper than Foxtel. BINGE costs just $10 per month or $14 monthly if you want HD and in 2021 how can you sit through anything other than HD at minimum?
How long does it take to watch every Harry Potter film?
If you're one to set records or have nothing better to do, you could attempt to watch all of the films in one sitting. To do that you'd need to settle in for a solid 19 hours and 39 minutes.
