Spike get Star Wars!

"Spike TV has engineered the biggest movie purchase in the net's 22-year history, ponying up between $65 million and $70 million for a six-year exclusive deal covering all six of Lucasfilm's "Star Wars" movies, reports Variety.

The blockbuster in the deal was Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, which Spike TV will get in the first network window in April, 2008. That's the earliest window a cable network has ever landed to a "Star Wars" movie; the first five titles began their TV life on the Fox Network."
