HBO ushers in the New Year with all eight original Harry Potter films streaming on HBO Now, HBO Go, and HBO On Demand beginning January 1.

Also debuting in January are the six-part limited series Mosaic from filmmaker Steven Soderbergh and the documentary David Bowie: The Last Five Years, and new seasons of the comedies Crashing, Divorce, and High Maintenance and the political talk show Real Time with Bill Maher.

New movies arriving in January include The Fate of the Furious (available in an extended edition) with Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, and Charlize Theron, the comedy Snatched with Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn, teen romantic drama Everything, Everything, and horror film Morgan.

Older films returning to HBO include the modern romance (500) Days of Summer with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, Oscar-winners Sideways with Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church and The Hours with Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman, The Informant! with Matt Damon, the Back to the Future trilogy with Michael J. Fox, and the original frat house comedy Animal House.

Among the films leaving at the end of January are Oscar-winners Adaptation with Nicolas Cage and Meryl Streep and Tender Mercies with Robert Duvall, Oscar-nominee Frost/ Nixon with Frank Langella and Michael Sheen, and Scarface and Scent of a Woman with Al Pacino.
