    The Harry Potter series movies are on every now and then on HBO.

    Can I say "The Harry Potter series movies are on every now and then on HBO. I watch then whenever I find that they are on" or "The Harry Potter series movies are on every other day on HBO. I watch then whenever I find that they are on"?

    This doesn't need to be two sentences at all.

    Every now and then, I watch the Harry Potter movies on HBO.
    When I stumble across a Harry Potter movie on HBO, I watch it.
    HBO broadcast a Harry Potter movie every other day and I always watch one if I happen to spot it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Every other day means every second day. For example, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday, and the following Tuesday.
