Apple Reportedly Declined Offer From Sony Pictures to Stream 'The Interview' on iTunes

Apple reportedly declined an offer form Sony Pictures to stream the controversial film "The Interview" on iTunes. According to The New York Times, Apple showed no interest to stream the film, especially with the speedy time table Sony was requesting.

It remained unclear, however, whether any on-demand service would take “The Interview.” According to people briefed on the matter, Sony had in recent days asked the White House for help in lining up a single technology partner — Apple, which operates iTunes — but the tech company was not interested, at least not on a speedy time table. An Apple spokesman declined to comment.

"The Interview" has become a highly-anticipated film after it was cancelled by Sony Pictures. Hackers (presumably with ties to North Korea) breached Sony's internal systems and leaked terabytes of data. Additionally, the hackers threatened any theater that participated in the movie's release, which was slated for December 25 -- Christmas Day; however, Sony changed its plans and is now releasing the film in online, through its website, and some theaters.

The movie depicts two journalists (James Franco and Seth Rogen) that travel to North Korea to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

Smart move on Apple, Sony had so many leak and security issues when they released the movie that it was immediately available on Kodi and other streaming sites. Google has reported several hacks after the release.
