What is the Harry Potter Audiobook Streaming Platform?
Netflix was the first major player to enter the Harry Potter audiobook streaming market, but they no longer have the exclusive rights. Amazon has been making great strides in this category, recently signing a multi-year agreement with Warner Bros. to stream all seven Harry Potter books and movies on their Prime Instant Video service.
Additionally, they have teamed up with Bloomsbury Publishing to produce an audiobook series based on the seven books. The first book is slated for release in November of this year.
Audiobooks are not just for people who love to read; they’re also great for those who want to listen while doing other things, like driving or working out. There are many different platforms that offer audiobooks, including Apple’s iTunes store, Google Play, and Amazon’s Kindle Store. Some platforms let you download audiobooks to your device so that you can listen offline, while others require that you have an internet connection to listen.
How Does It Work?
If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’ll want to check out the various streaming platforms that are available to listen to the books and movies. Here’s a look at some of the most popular options:
- Netflix: This is probably the most popular option for fans of Harry Potter. You can watch all seven movies and all nine books on Netflix, as well as the Cursed Child play.
- Amazon Prime: Amazon also has a wide range of Harry Potter content, including all seven movies and eight books. You can also watch the films and books on Kindle devices and Fire tablets.

How Many Harry Potter Audiobooks are Available?
There are currently eleven Harry Potter audiobooks available for streaming on various platforms. The first was released in 2007 and the eleventh book was released in 2018.
The audiobooks are divided into two series, the original seven books and the new additions to the series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. All of the audiobooks are read by British actors, with some exceptions made for American readers due to copyright issues.
The first six books can be found on Amazon Prime, Audible, and iTunes. The seventh book can only be found on iTunes. The Fantastic Beasts audiobook is not available on any streaming platform yet, but is set to be released in November 2020.
