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