How to watch the Harry Potter reunion in the UK?
Harry Potter fans in the UK were initially anxious when it was announced the reunion would air on HBO Max, a service not currently available in the UK.
However, as was the case for the Friends reunion, Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts will be available on Sky and Now TV.
Zai Bennett, Sky MD of Content UK and Ireland, said: “Twenty years ago we welcomed a little bit of cinema magic into the world as Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone had its big screen debut.
“It’s a franchise like no other, enchanting generations of children and adults alike. We’re marking the occasion by adding every film in the Wizarding World film series to our cinema line-up this festive season and we’re thrilled to be the exclusive home of the next piece of Hogwarts history.”
