NEW YORK (AP) — “The Force” can now be streamed.

Streaming entertainment service M-GO says it acquired the digital distribution rights to all six episodes of the Star Wars series and will start selling them on Friday. It has already begun taking pre-orders.

The Walt Disney Co., which owns Lucasflim Ltd., and 20th Century Fox are also releasing added features to the films, including extras from each film and deleted scenes.

M-GO is taking pre-orders for Star Wars: The Digital Movie Collection for a limited-time price of $99.77. The individual films are available for pre-order for $19.77 — a nod to the theatrical release year of the first film in the franchise.
