The Millennium Falcon in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

If you’re determined to save money by watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens at home through a streaming service… well, you’d better live in the True North Strong and Free. Netflix tells Variety that the timing of its Disney deals will only let it stream the new Star Wars flick in Canada, starting some time in August.

We certainly wouldn’t expect UK availability when even Disney’s own streaming service won’t have Star Wars movies, let alone a rival.
