Sky Movies announces new Harry Potter channel

By Nathaniel Dalby - Mon 19th Oct 2015 News

Sky has announced that it will launch a new Sky Movies channel - dedicated to the Harry Potter film series. 

Starting on October 24th, the Potter-dedicated channel will run for a week until the end of the month and will feature all 8 Harry Potter films, from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

The channel has been created to mark the 15th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - the first entry in the series. 

As well as showing all the films in the franchise, Sky Movies Harry Potter will also showcase a number of documentaries and behind-the-scenes features focusing on the making of the films. 

Viewers will also be able to catch exclusive extended interviews with the cast of the show, including lead actors Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint. 

The channel, which coincides with both the half-term holiday and Halloween, comes after author and creator of the franchise JK Rowling recently ruled out the possibility of a rumoured Harry Potter TV series.

Sky Movies Harry Potter will run from October 24th-31st and will be available for all Sky Movies subscribers. The entire series will also be available to watch on demand on Sky Movies for the rest of the year.
