A while back, Amazon had all the Harry Potter movies on sale for 3.99 each (streaming delivery). That is to say, all the Harry Potter movies except Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1. For some reason, that wasn’t part of the sale. Strange, but whatever. I picked up the rest of them, and had them all lurking on the TiVo until I finished reading all the books. Having done that a while ago, I finally got around to working my way through the movies. Well, I have just finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and so now I’m ready for the elusive HP7.1.
Except I can’t find it to rent anywhere. Not on Amazon, or Netflix (streaming), or RedBox, or iTunes. It seems I am required to acquire physical media in order to continue my visual journey. As someone who has actively been working not to add more items to the house, this annoys me.
Does anyone know what the deal is with this particular movie, and why it can’t be had via rental, when part 2 doesn’t seem to be a problem? The only thing that springs to mind is some piece of music got slipped in that wasn’t supposed to, and there’s now a kerfluffle about copyright and use rights.
