ITV’s high definition service gets a major boost this weekend as it screens the entire Star Wars movie series. Starting 24th October the films will be available freely on the ITV HD channels on the Freesat satellite service.
Then throughout the months of November and December, the entire series will be airing on ITVHD in consecutive order, beginning with Episode I: The Phantom Menace on 24th October, culminating with Episode VI: Return of the Jedi in December, and including the terrestrial premiere of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
If you don’t like Star Wars (and I am guessing Jaws isn’t your scene either) then ITV HD also has Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and Champions League and FA Cup football.
Freesat is a subscription-free satellite TV service from the BBC and ITV, with over 140 channels and free high-definition programmes from the BBC and ITV, all with no monthly bills. As Freesat is a satellite service, you can receive it anywhere in the UK and can use an existing satellite dish.
Other ITV HD highlights on Freesat include films such as Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, and Champions League and FA Cup football.
