Google, YouTube and XBox to stream movie ‘The Interview’

Sony Pictures has made the release of the controversial comedy movie, “The Interview,” available since Wednesday through online video platforms run by Google, Microsoft and Sony website, the studio said. Sony, which just last week canceled the release of the comedy after it triggered the most destructive cyberattack ever to target a U.S. company, will be available starting at 10 a.m. Pacific Time on Google Play, YouTube Movies, Microsoft’s Xbox Video and Sony website. The sites will offer comedy at $5.99 to rent or buy for $14.99.
“It was essential for our studio to release this movie, especially given the assault upon our business and our employees by those who wanted to stop free speech,” Sony Entertainment Chief Executive Michael Lynton said in a statement. “We chose the path of digital distribution first so as to reach as many people as possible on opening day, and we continue to seek other partners and platforms to further expand the release.”
