The best ways of watching Star Wars in the UK right now without needing a big Sabacc win to pay for it
Want to have a Star Wars marathon this weekend [why wouldn't you do that EVERY weekend? - Ed] but you don't own the films on VHS, Betamax, DVD, Laserdisc, Video CD, Digital Download or Blu-ray? We're here to help. We're pretty good at seeking out deals, so we've put our minds to our favourite sci-fi franchise that happens to be set in a galaxy far far away and found your cheapest and best options...
The quickest way is obviously streaming. There are a few options so let's start with the main streaming services...
- NowTV - currently if you have a Sky Cinema Pass you can watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - but that's the only Star Wars film on rotation on there right now. They have had a dedicated Star Wars channel in the past so keep an eye out for that again. It won't be in time for this week's planned marathon though!
- Netflix - again, your choices are limited - right now they have Star Wars: The Last Jedi but that's your limit. We always reckon a Netflix subscription is worth having but it won't scratch your Star Wars itch completely right now.
- Amazon Video - Amazon come up nil via their Prime subscription movies - so if you're expecting to watch any of the Star Wars films without additional cost then look elsewhere. They DO offer all of the films on buy-to-own via Amazon video, with the complete saga of Episodes 1-6 for £46.99 and usually between £9.99 and £13.99 depending on whether you're after standard definition of full HD.
- Google Play - all of the films are available on Google Play for £9.99 with the Episodes 1-6 collection available for £59.99
If you'd rather something physical to pop on your shelf then the obvious options are to pick up the films on one of the various physical formats that are currently available. The availability options for the non Disney films are becoming more scarce but they are still available right now. There are loads of different discs and packages so we've popped in a whole raft of price comparisons below to help you find the best price for the format you're after for each film.
