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.

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