Harry Potter Is Being Deleted From Netflix Today

Wingardium Levios-ohhhhh.

Netflix deleting content isn't a new thing, but Netflix usually isn't in the habit of deleting the good shit. Sadly, that doesn't apply to the Harry Potter series, with Australian Netflix removing all of the Harry Potter movies today.

In case there's any you haven't seen, here's the full list that is apparating into a land invisible to VPNs:

  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
  • Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  • Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

It's all thanks to licensing issues, which is frustrating because ... the Harry Potter series is getting added to US Netflix. This month. So instead of enjoying that sweet advantage where Australians had something over American Netflix users for a change, we're losing the lot and will have to resort to, y'know, the usual methods.

On the bright side, at least there's other ways to get our Harry Potter fix. That proper Harry Potter RPG really needs to rear its head this year, though.

Hot Damn, This Harry Potter-Themed RPG In Minecraft Is Huge (And Free)

Recreating Harry Potter in Minecraft? That's been done. But recreating all of Hogwarts into a mammoth experience that has quests, trading, support for co-op, Diagon Alley, Platform 93/4, Deatheaters, Hagrid's wonderful forests and you can fly around the whole lot ... well that's a whole other experience.

    Dam ! My kids love watching it ☹️

    If they weren't simultaneously being added to US Netflix, I would think this was an attempt to bolster Warner Bros streaming service. Do they even have plans to launch HBO Max here?

      Sadly HBO max won’t be coming to Australia for a few years as In Australia, Foxtel holds an exclusive arrangement with HBO, granting it 'first-run' access to an impressive list of drama titles including Succession, Euphoria, Watchmen, and a recently announced Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon.

        On the bright side, if Foxtel's financial issues continue much longer, then we might see this service in Australia sooner rather than later.

          Foxtel is having financial issues? This makes me happy.

    Luckily I own them all on DVD. Oh, and blu-ray. Oh, and the special editions. Oh, and the audio books. Oh, and the books...

    Help! I have a problem...

    Da da da da daaaaa da da daaaaa, daaaaa da da daaaaaa da daaaaaaaa.

    Curious if they are being removed because another service brought them or Netflix did not want to renew the contract

    If it's the first, wonder who picked them up, if the latter, if they will be in limbo again or find another service.

    It's possible they'll get added back the same time as the US gets them. It happens pretty often that something leaves and then a day/week/month later it gets added back.

    Foxtel has been advertising about having some sort of pop up channel or something with all the Hsrry Potter films & Fantastic Beasts ones together...coincidental? All this splintering of streaming content at this rate makes me look to do something old fashioned...buy the dvd/movie in a sale instead!! :-p

    What utter bullshit, this is why stan is killing Netflix coz they don't do stupid stunts like this. Is a single service with access to everything unlike Netflix which adds shows at without the first couple season or just haven't been bothered to update the series they already have.
