Sky Movies has signed a defining agreement with Warner Bros for exclusive access to all eight Harry Potter movies.
The three-month deal takes effect from next month and runs through the key Christmas period. All eight movies will be available in HD, with each film shown ad-free and uncut.
The agreement covers linear, on demand and mobile including the Sky Movies monthly pass available on the NOW TV-branded service.
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 added: “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.”
Last month Sky signed a multi-year agreement that includes exclusive first run access to The Dark Knight Rises, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Dark Shadows and Wrath of the Titans.
