How to Watch the Harry Potter Movies in Order

All the films in the original series are exclusive to Peacock

There are two ways to watch the Harry Potter movies. You can watch them in release order or in chronological order in which the events in the movies happen.

The only way to stream the original eight films is on Peacock, which has a free subscription tier. The movies are all also available to rent or purchase on Amazon, iTunes, YouTube, and other online movie rental services.

Unfortunately, the Fantastic Beasts movies are not currently available on any streaming platform and must be rented or purchased online. Like the original eight films, the two Fantastic Beasts films are available to rent or purchase on Amazon, iTunes, YouTube, and other movie rental services.
