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).

Will there be clips of HP6 in between the movies?

I don’t think their will be clips from HP6 because they are advertising a new movie “race to witch mountain” with the ads for this, so I think they will be previewing that…. boo. But, its still fun to have them on!

I love watching the movies on ABC Family because all the deleted scenes they put in the movie, just makes them better! But I am just going to watch the DVD’s because I am cancling my cable because of economic funness we can no longer afford to pay for cable.

Cool! I like how they include the deleted scenes. I hope they show more previews of HBP, but at this point I don’t think they will show anything we haven’t already seen. I can always dream, though.

Even though I have the dvds, I too try and catch these because (as others have noted) they cut in the deleted scenes. In fact a friend of mine only owns copies he recorded off of tv (except for the last two) for that reason. They should really include those “director’s cut” versions on the dvd.

I remember last time they did the HP marathon there was a rumor they were going to “direcor’s cut” GoF but it wasn’t. I guess there’s no such rumors this time.

I’m like ChrstinePotter – I own the dvd’s but can’t resist watching when they show on TV – especially when they put in the deleted scenes!
