Watch Star Wars Episode IV in Your Command Prompt for Free


Star Wars in Command Prompt

What can you do with your Windows command prompt? Here is one, watching Star Wars movie Episode IV – A New Hope, directly from the command prompt. How do that sounds to you? Interesting? Here is how to watch the movie in Ascii.

  1. Go to Start > Run.
  2. In the Run box, type “cmd” ( without the quotes ) and hit OK to open the command prompt windows.
  3. Within command prompt, type “telnet” ( without the quotes ) and hit ENTER.
  4. Sit back and watch the show. Oh ya, grab some popcorns also.

** For MAC users, go to Terminal and type “telnet” (without the quotes).

I have no idea if this works with Windows Vista ( cos I am Win XP user ), some said it worked , some said no.
