Why are the Harry Potter movies not on Peacock anymore?

As of May 10, 2023, all eight of the Harry Potter movies are no longer streaming and on Peacock and have been removed. This isn’t the first time this happens as the platform shares distribution rights with another streaming service. So the two have to “share” the productions, meaning the movies are available to watch on one streaming service at a time. The back and forth has been going on for a couple of years, so it’s likely going to keep happening in the near future. So where did the fantasy productions go?

As of this writing, all eight of the Harry Potter movies have jumped back to HBO Max.
