ABC to Air Harry Potter Movie Saturdays

The main ABC Television Network will be broadcasting the first three Harry Potter films on consecutive Saturday nights in High Definition beginning this weekend. Fans can enjoy Sorcerer's Stone tonight starting at 8:00pm ET, followed next week, April 25th with a showing of Chamber of Secrets, followed on May 2nd with a broadcast of Prisoner of Azkaban. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will be then shown on May 16th on the main ABC station. While it is true these films have aired multiple times in the past, they are always great fun to watch again at home. At this point we do not know if there will be any previews of HBP included, perhaps during the broadcasts next month, but again we have no word on this; we will update with more if it changes.

And once again ABC did an extremely poor job of editing. Only ABC Family adds the deleted scenes.

Aw, I watched Sorcerer’s Stone last night! I loved it, of course :D It brought me back to the first time that I watched it, and everything started for me (I saw the film before I started reading the books). Although they cut out quite a bit, like the bit where Hermione tells Ron he’s got dirt on his nose, and the Potions class, which was rather annoying, but I understand that it’s one of the longer films.

It’s funny. I own the movies and I even watch them sometimes. But every time I’m flipping channels on TV and one of the movies is on, I always watch it.

The one this last Saturday, “Sorcerer’s Stone” had a lot more deleted from it, I think. When it is shown on ABC Family they tend to include the regular version along with the deleted scenes. But when it is on Network, they have more commercials, I guess.

It is always interesting to look “Harry Potter”, even in that case if you already it looked also it at you on DVD . Such impressions that you look it anew.

I started watching, but quickly realized they cut more out of the broadcast version than the version that was released in the theaters. l lost interest.
