Star Wars: The Force Awakens will hit theatres worldwide in December, but in case you prefer to watch it at home you might be happy to know that Sky will be the first company in the UK to show the film.

This comes after today’s announcement that the broadcaster has signed an exclusive deal with Disney.

Sky has announced that this will come alongside a range of other new movies that will be added to its pay TV service in the UK.

Sky explains more:

Sky Movies and NOW TV Sky Movies Pass customers will be able to watch premieres like Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur and Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the first pay TV window from around nine months after their release in cinemas.  They can enjoy the Sky Movies Disney channel and all the latest Disney, DisneyPixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm hits, all in HD and in some cases, 3D. In addition to the latest blockbuster movies, popular TV channels Disney Channel, Disney XD and Disney Junior will continue to be available through Sky’s subscription packages in both standard and high definition.

You can find out more about the new deal with Sky and Disney at the source link below.

As of yet they have not announced when the movie will be available on Sky exactly.
