ABC Family will be broadcasting another one of those "Harry Potter Weekend" events this month. In the past, the cable channel has included new previews of the upcoming Harry Potter films during the course of the telecasts (as witnessed last December), however at this time we do not know if there will be new Half-Blood Prince previews due to show this month.

Starting next weekend, the first showing will be of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on Friday, March 6 at 7:30pm (ET). Saturday, March 7th will see a mini-marathon starting with Sorcerer's Stone repeated at 12:30 pm, followed by Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets at 4:00pm, and completed with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at 8:00pm. Finally, Sunday, March 8th, ABC Family will broadcast another mini-marathon, this starting with Chamber of Secrets at 12:30pm, followed by Prisoner of Azkaban at 4:30pm, with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to be shown at 7:30pm (ET).

I love these marathons because the movies are all complete. It’s SO time to release DVDs of the complete movies! But I guess they’re waiting until all the movies are out, and we’ve all bought complete DVD sets (and possibly complege Blu-Ray sets) and then they’ll release a super boxed set with the movies in their complete form, deleted scenes and all. And I’ll buy them, too, no matter how broke I am!

I forget who asked this, but yeah ABC holds the rights to 1-4, HBO still holds the rights to number 5. However I have a feeling their (HBO’s) ownership will be ending soon. Probably right around June or July.

LoL. I always end up watching some of it too! I love Harry Potter. I have all the movies and books, but everytime I see it on TV, I have to stop and watch some of it. :p

Like so many others here, I too watch them on TV, just ‘cause. It IS fun (and strange) to watch them in a std. (non-WS) format, as the scene’s focus changes.

I hope they have some HBP stuff too — heck I’d be THRILLED just to see the featurette recently released (and included on the UK WB/HP website) as my TV screen is about twice the size of my monitor! Gotta love that!

You guys are soooo lucky. I’m sitting here in rainy England and you get this lol! I suppose I could do this with DVD’s but somehow it doesn’t have the same feeling. All we get is the occasional one shown at xmas :( !!!

Every time ABC has one of these weekends and my family watches the movies someone makes the comment “you know we do own the movies” meaning lets get out the DVDs and watch the movie with out commercials but that never happens. I think it is because there is always that little glimmer of hope that we might see some new HP interviews or sneak peeks. I wounder if my family will let me have a weekend of HP and just watch the movies.
