    “The Interview” now available on Google Play and YouTube Movies [W:66]

    Official Google Blog: “The Interview” now available on Google Play and YouTube Movies

    Last Wednesday Sony began contacting a number of companies, including Google, to ask if we’d be able to make their movie, "The Interview," available online. We'd had a similar thought and were eager to help—though given everything that’s happened, the security implications were very much at the front of our minds.

    Of course it was tempting to hope that something else would happen to ensure this movie saw the light of day. But after discussing all the issues, Sony and Google agreed that we could not sit on the sidelines and allow a handful of people to determine the limits of free speech in another country (however silly the content might be).
    I don't know if I'll get gigged for this. I don't think I should considering the fact that it's breaking news and it's being posted directly from the source. The Interview is now available for download. Sony has given a massive middle finger to NK and decided to release the movie online. Admittedly for around the same prices a movie theater would charge. Let's see what the reaction is when NK gets their Wifi password back and realize the movie is now out there for the world to see.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Not to be dense (okay, maybe a little dense) but NK has the internet capabilities of me in 1991. Do we actually know for a fact that NK was responsible for the Sony hack?

    Another utter fail for Sony... all this is US ONLY! How on earth is it "sticking it to NK" if the freaking movie is only released in the US? Pathetic.

    Okay, time for me to double down on my density and ask, "What does that mean?" Is there a neatly packaged timeline for people who haven't paid attention to every step of this?

    Good. I would not have ever considered to cancel the flick to start with.

    Because no one cares about Europe.

    Not the point.

    Sony has the rights to this movie world wide.. Google Play and Youtube.. hell their own freaking website is world wide. So why on earth not release it world wide when they have the ability?

    They are basically forcing overseas people to use VPNs or pirate the movie.. and instead they could have earned a pretty sum if they had just bothered to release it world wide.. utter fail.

    No worries I will get this movie and I was going to actually for the first time in over a decade buy a movie just to stick it to North Korea.. but **** that.
