The Force will be very strong on TNT and TBS for some time.

Turner announced on Wednesday that it has licensing agreements with Disney and 20th Century Fox that allow it to be the exclusive linear cable outlet for all Star Wars movies, which means you will be able to watch the six films from the George Lucas years, as well as those under J.J. Abrams’ domain (including 2015’s The Force Awakens, which hits cable in 2018) and three other upcoming Star Wars films (including spin-off Rogue One, which will air starting in 2019).  

In a statement, Deborah K. Bradley, executive VP of networks optimization, content strategy, and commercialization for Turner, said: “The Star Wars movies and characters are beloved across generations, captivating audiences and breaking box office records around the globe for nearly four decades… Through this deal, TNT and TBS will be the exclusive basic cable home of one of the most iconic, enduring and valuable movie franchises of all time, giving viewers the chance to watch this amazing collection from the very beginning.”

You won’t have to wait long to watch the first six: TNT will air them from Sept. 20 through 25.
