After being postponed for a year due to the coronavirus, the European Football Championship held by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) is about to come to an exciting conclusion. Due to the tournament only happening every four years, this installment is still called UEFA Euro 2020.

Italy secured their spot in the finals on July 6, beating Spain during an intense penalty shootout. England and Denmark face off in the semi-finals to see who will play against Italy for the championship. Neither England nor Denmark have made it to the UEFA Euro semi-finals since the ’90s, and if England wins the match, it will be their first time reaching the finals.

Viewers tuning in for the last rounds of Euro 2020 have two matches left to watch:

  • England vs. Denmark – July 7 at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN and ESPN+
  • Italy vs. TBA – July 11 at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN and ESPN+

Soccer fans in the United States who are cable subscribers can watch both games live on ESPN. If you don’t have access to cable, there are multiple ways you can stream Euro 2020 matches as they happen.

Harry Potter and Hedwig
Owls are a key part of “Harry Potter.”

  • The “Harry Potter” movies are now available to stream through the SyFy channel’s on-demand library.
  • To access SyFy on-demand you can use a live streaming service like Sling or Hulu + Live TV.
  • You can also rent “Harry Potter” movies without a subscription through VOD retailers like Amazon.

TV (small)+ Live TV (small)

For fans of the “Harry Potter” movie franchise, subscription streaming options are surprisingly hard to track down.

As recently as August 2020, the series was streaming on HBO Max. The franchise then made an appearance on NBC’s Peacock in October 2020, but has since left the service. For the time being, you can watch the movies on-demand via the SyFy channel on live streaming platforms like Sling or Hulu + Live TV. That said, it’s not clear how long the movies will remain on the network.

The popular fantasy films take place in the Harry Potter Universe, where wizards and people without magical abilities (muggles) coexist. Throughout the series, viewers follow the protagonist, Harry, and his two friends, Hermione and Ron, as they progress through their formative years at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Along the way, Harry meets allies and enemies, hones his magic, and unlocks his destiny.

If you’re an existing fan or just someone who wants to watch the movies for the first time, we’ve detailed all the “Harry Potter” streaming options below.

How to watch every ‘Harry Potter’ movie

The “Harry Potter” movies are now available to stream through any service with access to the SyFy channel’s on-demand catalog. That said, the films tend to jump from networks like SyFy to platforms like Peacock and HBO Max on a regular basis. As such, it’s not clear how long you’ll be able watch the movies on SyFy.

Live TV streaming services with access to SyFy include Sling TV, Hulu + Live TV, Fubo TV, and YouTube TV.

The cheapest of the bunch is Sling TV’s Sling Blue plan at $35 a month. The live TV streaming service offers a total of 44 channels. On-demand titles from select networks are available as well, including the “Harry Potter” movies via SyFy’s on-demand selection.

TV (small)

Hulu + Live TV, Fubo TV, and YouTube TV also offer the “Harry Potter” movies via SyFy’s on-demand library, but they’re more expensive than Sling TV. Plans for each service start at $65 a month, though they all offer more live channels than Sling.

Are the ‘Harry Potter’ movies on Peacock or HBO Max?

The “Harry Potter” films have previously been available on services like HBO Max and Peacock, but the movies are not currently streaming on either of those platforms.

Due to existing streaming deals, Vulture suggests that the “Harry Potter” movies may alternate between Peacock and HBO Max regularly through 2025. As of April 2021, it’s unclear when the movies will be back on either service.

How to rent ‘Harry Potter’ movies

In addition to live TV streaming services, fans can also rent or buy every “Harry Potter” film on a per-movie-basis through digital rental services. Some of these services include Amazon, RedBox, FandangoNow, Vudu, Google Play, and iTunes.

Pricing for the series varies by service, but most of the movies start at $4 to rent or $15 to buy.

FuboTV surges 20% after sports streaming service raises preliminary Q4 revenue guidance

FuboTV
  • FUBO shares are up over 20% on Tuesday after the company raised preliminary revenue and subscriber guidance.
  • Analysts at Needham raised their price target for FUBO to $60/share, citing the potential for a new sports gambling revenue stream within 12 months.
  • Over 80 million shares of FUBO were released from a lock-up on Dec. 30th. According to analyst Laura Martin, this, along with the improved revenue figures and business outlook, signals the bottom for the once struggling FuboTV, perĀ SeekingAlpha.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

After a rocky start to the year on Monday, FuboTV (NYSE: FUBO) announced fourth quarter revenue and subscriber guidance Tuesday morning, and shares are surging.

Previously, the “sports-first” video-streaming platform expected revenue in the last quarter of 2020 to be between $80 million-$85 million. Tuesday’s revised figures bring that number to between $94 million-$98 million, representing a 77%-84% year-over-year increase in revenue.

Paid subscriber growth also skyrocketed some 72% year-over-year. The company expects to boast over 545,000 paid subscribers in their year-end filings. That’s an increase of more than 35,000 over their prior guidance of 500,000-510,000 subscribers.

In a press release, CEO David Gandler touched on Fubo’s 2021 goals saying the company would be “laser-focused on executing our growth strategies, which include continuing to grow advertising revenues, working to implement sports wagering into our product and further establishing FuboTV as a leader in sports and live streaming.”

This comes two weeks after Needham’s equity research team maintained its buy rating and doubled its price target for the rising sports streaming service from $30 to $60 per share.

Per SeekingAlpha, Needham noted the subscriber growth beat, a live sports button on Hisense’s VIDAA TVs sold at Walmart, a new gambling revenue stream within the year, along with several strong CTV industry consumer, revenue, and valuation fundamental upside drivers as their reasoning behind the bullishness.

Needham analyst Laura Martin also argued the bottom is in on FUBO after a tough 2020 due to a December 31 lockup expiration, which released 88mm shares into the open market.

Martin said in a statement, “we believe FUBO’s recent share price weakness was caused by an enormous supply/demand imbalance as 88mm shares became un-locked-up on Dec 30th, vs. less than 20mm shares in the float, and 8mm shares/day of avg trading volume.”

According to Martin, with supply-demand imbalance resolved and with new revenue figures, the outlook for Fubo is bullish.

FUBO trades around $30 per share and boasts a $2 billion market cap.
