Here’s how to watch the 'Harry Potter' reunion.

Anyone who has an HBO Max subscription is in luck when it comes to watching the Harry Potter reunion special. Warner Bros. now has a streaming platform because of HBO Max, and this is why it's the streaming platform where you’ll be able to find the reunion. HBO Max doesn’t offer a free trial which means that if you’re super curious to watch the reunion, you’ll definitely have to pay for a plan.

The Harry Potter reunion special has been given an official Jan. 1, 2022, release date. A lot of fans were hoping to lay eyes on the reunion special for Christmas, but it turns out it’s going to be more of a New Year’s Day treat. As far as HBO Max subscriptions go, $9.99 a month is the cheapest option — but you’ll have to deal with advertisements. Those willing to pay $14.99 a month can freely watch all HBO Max entertainment without any commercials in the way.
