Where would you prefer to watch the Harry Potter films?

It's a given that you want to watch the Harry Potter movies. They appeal to many ages, as long as the age includes a healthy sense of wonder. Most likely, you and all the other Hogwarts fanatics would prefer to watch the entire film series via online streaming for the sake of ease and convenience. Wouldn't it be great to call over a sibling or a friend and unleash the Harry Potter magic?

Streaming services

You have a choice of streaming platforms for your pop culture extravaganza. In 2021, all eight films in the Harry Potter saga were still free in the Netherlands and Belgium, for example. Your country may be different.

The Amazon option

The movies can be viewed via an Amazon Prime account, but now you do have to pay for each film to experience his magical world.

Get something extra

Some of your options include the latest installment of original behind the scenes footage, if you just can't get enough by watching the Harry Potter movies themselves.

Harry Potter movies on DVD or Blu-Ray

Of course, you can also order the DVD box or Blu-Ray collection of all eight Harry Potter volumes.

Not free

Watching Harry Potter for free is unfortunately not possible, unless you use illegal torrents. We do not recommend this approach, as you risk calling down the wrath of Lord Voldemort — and possibly some even more unpleasant characters.

How can you watch Harry Potter using Netflix?

If you have a Netflix subscription you can watch every Harry Potter movie for free — all eight films, from the first movie to the epic conclusion — without any limit, using your choice of a smart TV, computer or phone.

The key

All you need is a VPN to start this Harry Potter binge. We have tested NordVPN ourselves, and this service works perfectly for streaming the Harry Potter series. NordVPN costs about 3 euros per month.

Not a bad price for your Emma Watson fix!

Useful tip

You can try NordVPN and many other VPN providers for free for 30 days. If streaming Harry Potter doesn't create magic for you on VPN, you can just get your money back.

How to stream Harry Potter movies,
step by step

  1. Sign up with a VPN provider such as NordVPN, SurfShark, or PIA.
  2. Install the VPN service on the device you will be streaming your Harry Potter festival on.
  3. Start the VPN and connect to a VPN server in Turkey (for example).
  4. On either Windows or Mac: open a private window in Chrome or Edge and go to Netflix.com.
  5. On Android, iOS or using your smart TV: open your Netflix app.
  6. Sign in to Netflix and search for ‘Harry Potter’.
  7. You will get search results showing all the films Netflix offers from the Harry Potter franchise.
  8. Start streaming, sit back, and enjoy the Harry Potter movie.
Watch your language?

You may notice that you see all the movie titles in English — or Turkish, if that happens to be your preferred language — in the Turkish Netflix library. The only drawback is that you cannot set the subtitles to play in any language you desire.

English, of course

Naturally, English is commonly available, being the native language of Harry Potter himself. Netflix is expanding its range of languages all the time, although Netflix has not entirely completed a truly comprehensive global set of languages.

A little secret

Our best tip from our own chamber of secrets that will let you stream Harry Potter movies to your heart's content is: go get a VPN, if you don't already have one.

Why do I need a VPN?

With a VPN you can easily change your IP address so that it appears to be in a different location, and not necessarily anywhere near where you physically are. This bit of wizardry lets you bypass the geographical restrictions that a streaming service may try to impose on you. For example, Harry Potter on Netflix is actually only in Australia and Turkey.

Some last hints
  • The movie ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them’ from 2016, the forerunner of Harry Potter, can be viewed via the Turkish or Australian Netflix library.
  • Please note that Netflix is constantly updating its library. Netflix may well choose to make the Harry Potter film series available in more countries — or possibly remove it from its listing altogether.

A word to the wise, therefore: don't delay your trip to this wizarding world. Stream Harry Potter soon.
