How to watch Harry Potter on Netflix from anywhere

If you’re a Potterhead, you’ve probably been wondering: when will Harry Potter be on Netflix? Well, you’ll be glad to know that all the Harry Potter movies are coming to Netflix. Unfortunately, they won’t appear in Netflix libraries across the world and can only be viewed in France, Belgium, Spain, Australia, and New Zealand (some of the movies are available on Netflix Canada too).

Netflix uses geo-location filters to ensure that content libraries are different depending on your location. But not to worry. If you want to watch Harry Potter on Netflix in the USA, the UK, or anywhere else outside of the very limited number of countries where it is available as standard, you’ll need a VPN. Using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) can evade Netflix filters and help you access a catalog that includes Harry Potter.

VPNs encrypt all internet traffic flowing to and from your device and route it via an intermediary server of your choice. The encrypted tunnel is virtually unhackable, meaning neither Netflix nor your ISP can figure out what you’re up to online. And when you select a server in, let’s say Australia, your IP address is switched with an Australian one. As a result, all host websites and apps you connect to assume you’re physically located in the country.

How to watch Harry Potter on Netflix using a VPN

Here’s how to watch Harry Potter on Netflix from anywhere in the world:

  1. Choose a suitable VPN provider. We recommend ExpressVPN, but NordVPN and CyberGhost are great low-cost alternatives.
  2. Download the relevant app for your device directly from the provider’s site or an official app marketplace.
  3. Once the installation is complete, clear your browser cache and cookies to remove old location identifiers. Restart your device.
  4. Connect to a VPN server in Australia. We recommend Australia as it currently hosts the entire library of Harry Potter movies and several top VPNs (including those above) can access the Australia Netflix library.
  5. Navigate to Netflix and log in with your existing Netflix account credentials.
  6. Stream all the Harry Potter content you like.

Note that you may need to select a specific server to unlock the Netflix library you want. If you need help finding the right one, you can contact your VPN’s customer support team.

What else can I do with a VPN?

VPNs keep you safe and secure on the internet, comfortable in the knowledge that your digital footprint is far from prying eyes. This means hackers lurking on public wifi networks can’t view your information, and your online activity can’t be tracked by your internet service provider or government.

Other than Netflix, a VPN can unlock lots of popular geo-restricted streaming sites such as Amazon Prime VideoHuluBBC iPlayerAdult Swim, and more.

VPNs are a great idea for accessing banking and financial products as you travel abroad. You can make it look as if you’re logging in from your home country, avoiding compliance red flags and possible fraud alerts.
