Where can I watch Star Wars online in the UK legally?
VOD News | On 03, Dec 2016
Whether it’s May the 4th or your own marathon inspired by watching Rogue One, everyone around the UK is fighting the urge to binge all of George Lucas’ saga in a row. Well, mostly Episode IV. The question is: where can you watch Star Wars online legally in the UK?
Star Wars has long been the territory of DVDs and Blu-rays, as endless box sets were released complete with original cuts, the CGI-padded special editions, and bonus features. In 2015, though, that changed: as the world got increasingly excited about Episode VII, Lucasfilm took a leap into the digital universe.
Last year, Star Wars was released on VOD for the first time, with all six episodes available to buy and rent in SD and HD (although sadly not in hologram form). Since then, Sky also struck a deal with Disney and Fox to give customers exclusive broadcast access to the saga through Sky Cinema. That deal’s since run out, but the whole six episodes are still available to stream – or, of course, just the original three, if the prequels aren’t the droids you are looking for.
Here’s a rundown of all the ways can you watch Star Wars online:
Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
