Crave

Harry Potter extravaganza

After a weird period of the Harry Potter movies not being on any Canadian streaming service, and a time when only the final four films were available on Netflix due to “territorial licensing,” the entire series is now on Crave.

Notably, this comes shortly after the first film, The Philosopher’s Stone, celebrated its 20th anniversary (in North America) on November 16th.
