If you are a Harry Potter fan, you may already know about the HBO Max special, Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts. No, it is not a new movie. Instead, it is a more in-depth look at the wizarding world of Harry Potter. This special is due to come out on Jan. 1st, 2022. That is not long before the new Fantastic Beasts movie comes out. If you want to want to watch this special on the day it comes out, it will be on HBO Max only. For those outside the US, you’ll need to connect to a VPN.
Quickstart Guide to Watch Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts Outside the US

Why Use a VPN to Watch this Special?
If you are outside the US and want to watch it the day it releases, you have to. That is because of the licensing rights, you’ll have issues if you try to watch it outside the US without a VPN. That’s because the show is limited to the US. The key to being able to watch this special on opening day is choosing the correct server. We had success when we connected to a US server while using ExpressVPN. Of course, this is often a game of cat and mouse. As with anything, those VPN services that can’t adapt to the constant changes will perish.
That’s why we suggest using ExpressVPN. Using them can help solve your issues by changing your IP address to the US. Again, not all US servers work, so if you are having problems, we suggest contacting support for assistance. Once you are on the right track, it will mask your IP to appear in the US. That way, you can enjoy Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts. It will also help you gain access to other channels and streaming services that are US-specific. That way, you can watch all the episodes or anything else on the network with a VPN.
No Potterhead will want to miss out on this special. It is a reunion of Daniel Ratcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Emma Watson (Hermoine Grainger-Weasley). Additionally, it has many others from the original cast. It is hard to believe it has been 20 years since the first movie came out. This special will really provide insight into the cast by using in-depth interviews and cast conversations. While you will recognize many from the series, there are two notable absences. Those include J.K. Rowling and Dame Maggie Smith. That said, you do see archival footage about J.K. taking about the film series. We are sure they will do a good job of editing.
