Good news for all Stars Wars fans – well, the ones with a Sky HD box anyway – you can watch all six Star Wars films in high definition (HD) on New Year’s Day.

It’s the HD premiere of Star Wars Episodes IV, V and VI – and as Sky is the only broadcaster to have the rights to them all in HD, it’s undoubtedly hoping this alien bonanza will mean more sales in the run-up to Christmas.
