I’m getting ready to turn on my Netflix subscription and start binge-watching the latest installment of the Star Wars prequel saga, but there’s one catch.
I need to watch all five episodes before I can begin.
I’m talking about the fifth episode of the “The Phantom Menace,” which hits Netflix on May 30.
You can watch the entire five-hour series on the “Discovery Channel,” which airs the first four episodes on a Friday at 8 p.m.
But this isn’t about how much time you have left.
I’m talking the amount of money you need to spend to get the entire series for free.
Netflix has the exclusive rights to the trilogy, which began with Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in 1977, and it’s not just because the original trilogy was the first Star Wars movie to earn an Oscar nomination.
In addition to having exclusive rights, the company has the right to license its content to a variety of content partners.
The Phantom Menaces are the only films to make it into the library of the Disney Channel.
The show is available on demand on the Disney channel for $7.99 a month and will be available for a limited time for $14.99 on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
The series has also been available on the Roku channel and Apple TV, so you don’t have to fork over any cash for the experience.
If you can’t wait to watch The Phantom Womenace for free, here are some other things to do before the show arrives:Netflix is offering the fifth “Star Wars” movie, and you can watch it on the streaming service on May 24.
The company is also offering a new movie for $10 a month, “Starring Leia,” which is also available on its streaming platform.
Netflix will be giving away “StarWars” merchandise for free for a year, starting on May 15.
You’ll get a Star Wars logo mug, Darth Vader mask, Darth Maul helmet, lightsaber, and other items.
