Sky Movies secures exclusive Harry Potter rights

October 16, 2012

Sky has reached an agreement with Warner Bros to deliver Sky Movies customers exclusive access to all eight Harry Potter movies from next month.

For three months, none of the Harry Potter movies will be available on any other UK TV channel or streaming service. All eight movies will be available in HD, with each film shown ad-free and uncut.

Sky Movies customers will be able to watch all Harry Potter movies when they want on their Sky+HD box through Sky’s On Demand service. Customers will also be able to take all eight films with them while they are on the move, watching the movies on a range of internet-connected devices through multiplatform TV service Sky Go.

The last film in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, will additionally be showing on Sky 3D.

The entire Harry Potter collection of movies will also be available via the Sky Movies monthly pass on NOW TV.
