you guys have been asking for them and they're finally coming ...

If you ever wanted to watch the last half of the Harry Potter franchise only (and arguably the better half) and not the first half due to territorial licensing, then boy are you in for a treat!

January 23, 2019

The reason the most iconic movies will not be available to watch is due to "territorial licensing." So if you were hoping to binge watch all of the Harry Potter movies this weekend, you're going to have to buy the first four on DVD.

Yes, it was a total shock and devastating news to everyone. So much so, that Netflix users decided to take to Twitter for some outraged and hilarious responses.

I’m not fully happy but I’m also not unhappy.

January 23, 2019

Seriously? You can’t get the first 3? What’s the point?

January 23, 2019

People had mixed feelings.

Might just delete my Netflix bc of this statement

January 23, 2019

I want all of them or none of them. You have to have the full franchise of these sequential franchises. Why are there territorial issues?

Some Netflix users chose to express their concern and frustration through comedy...

Sweet, the first four I have on DVD and then I stopped buying them so I'm all set now.

Others took to calling Netflix out for being cheap:

Yall need better lawyers

January 23, 2019

Try providing content every last person hasn’t already seen a dozen times.
Territorial licences are for sale for goodness sakes.
Shell out some of the extra cash you’re collecting and buy some.

January 23, 2019

Can you explain any benefit to territorial licensing? And who can I complain to about it?

January 23, 2019

Overall, Canadians just seem super happy to have something that the U.S. doesn't:

Harry Potter movies coming to Netflix Canada so it’s official I’m never going back to the US

January 23, 2019

Netflix Canada has all of the Lord of the Rings movies and is about to have all the Harry Potter ones too. US Netflix is trash

January 23, 2019

Universal healthcare, Legal weed and now we getting some Harry Potter on Netflix.
