Sky Movies becomes only place to enjoy all eight Harry Potter™ movies, in HD, on demand and on the go
Sky has strengthened its leadership in content by reaching an agreement with Warner Bros.’ to deliver Sky Movies customers exclusive access to all eight Harry Potter™ movies from next month.
The agreement means that Sky Movies will be the only place this Christmas where film fans will be able to enjoy the most successful movie franchise in box office history, from Harry’s first outing in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone™ to his final, epic battle with Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2™. During the three months that they are showing on Sky Movies, 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 the Harry Potter™ films 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 including iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones through Sky’s award-winning 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, the internet TV service powered by Sky which offers easy and flexible access to Sky Movies across a range of internet-connected devices.
The announcement is in addition to a multi-year agreement between Warner Bros.’ and Sky unveiled last month that will see Sky Movies become the first subscription service in the UK to show current Warner Bros.’ movies such as The Dark Knight Rises, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Dark Shadows and Wrath of the Titans, as well future releases including as Man of Steel, The Hangover Part III and The Great Gatsby.
Ian Lewis, Director of Sky Movies said: “We’re delighted to be extending our partnership with Warner Bros’. to deliver Sky Movies customers exclusive access to the entire Harry Potter™ collection, which will not be available on any other TV channel or streaming service this Christmas. To make it even better, Sky Movies customers can also enjoy the entire series of films on demand through their Sky+HD box, or watch them while they are on the move via their smartphone or mobile tablet.”
Josh Berger CBE, President & Managing Director, Warner Bros. UK, Ireland and Spain said: “The Harry Potter™ film franchise is a uniquely British success story, one that was conceived and produced here in the UK with a largely British cast and crew and beloved by millions of people around the world. For the first time ever, Sky Movies customers can look forward to enjoying all of the movies in this record-breaking series in one place at one time.”
