Where to watch Star Wars in a hurry?

I know I've left it a little late, but what's the easiest way I can watch the original 3 trilogy (not the poopy prequels) in advance of my trip to the cinema tomorrow night to watch the new film?

Can't find them anywhere locally on dvd. Can't find an ultraviolet code for sale.

Doesnt seem to be available on Sky as a purchase, although if I'm stuck I suppose I can add Sky Movies for a month and then cancel again.

Are there no legitimate ways to buy these online?

Damn. I thought I might have some codes for you, but the disk set I have didn't come with them.

Netflix and Unblock-Us?
Google play store?
Borrow from a friend or colleague?
Go buy them?

Dr Phil does have Sky, I'm fairly sure...

I thought everyone on here would have at least one copy of the boxset.

Do you not know anyone locally that has a copy you could borrow.

Cheers,

I don't have a copy of the boxset. Did watch them via Sky recently though, legitimacy costing you here Dr P

£10.99 a go on Sky store with the DVD sent on. You could stream them in "HD" now and have the disk sent to you. That would be ~£33. You seem to have committed to 138 euros.

Can you cancel and go for Sky Store? or is this a nefarious way of getting Sky Sports for Six Months past Mrs Phil ;)

TBH i'm not sure why anyone who would want to watch the new one at the cinema doesn't already own a copy.
I have them on DVD and Blu-Ray and I don't even like them very much and don't feel the need to go watch it at the cinema either..... But I am mental apparently (Verified by at least two members of AVF)

Because not everyone has an obsession with owning discs? :) I only own it as I think the kids will rewatch it - it is one of very few non-cartoon discs I have - another being The Dark Knight for its awesome demo factor. Also own Lawrence of Arabia for similar reasons.

There isn't a minimum contract. I just need to give 30 days notice so basically only a 1 month monthly term. It's €23 a month for 6 months maximum but I can cancel any time. That said I'll probably keep it for the 6 months anyway.

I can live without Sky Sports anyway, I have BT sports already. I can't do without that as they have the UFC contract.

I prefer disc rather than digital copy when it comes to Movies.
However I am happy with digital copy games on Xbox one and won't buy the discs.

Just been watching the force awakens trailer which I have ignored, it actually looks quite good and relieved George has been kept away from it. Now I fancy watching the originals and handily have them on disc to grab and watch :devil:

Normally when you change your contract with sky they sign you into a new 12 month contract.
