When the Star Wars saga finally became available to buy on digital storefronts like iTunes and Google Play, we hoped it would only be a matter of time until Disney and Fox made them available to stream. Thankfully, that's now about to happen, after Sky announced today that it's struck a deal with the two companies to bring all six movies to Sky Movies and Now TV from May 4th. That day obviously holds a special significance with fans, so Sky will kick things off with "UK TV's first ever 48 hour Star Wars marathon" on that date, showing the movies in "episodic order, as well as release order on both days." They'll also be offered to non-Sky subscribers through its separate streaming service. So, if you're already signed up to the Now TV movie bundle and ownership doesn't mean that much to you, you can skip the £64.99 Digital Movie Collection and get your geek on for the cost of your monthly subscription.
