Google has officially announced that it's made 'The Interview' available to rent or buy via 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).

"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 after leading theater chains refused to run it.

Apple was reportedly asked to stream the movie as well; however, it apparently declined the request.

How to Watch The Interview:
So starting at 10 a.m. PST in the U.S., you can rent or buy "The Interview" on Google Play and YouTube Movies. It will also be available to Xbox Video customers and via

XBMC KODY all the way, didn't even have to waste a dime for an raunchy movie that will only provoke chinky people. Seth Rogan on the other hand OMG he's the man. Except the other dumb ass who is not worth remembering he's name.

Great job Sony, everyone has a copy of the movie since most can download and share the link to everyone else.

Thank YOU Google. WE know that this is a comedy, even though "Little Kim" Jong-Un can't take a joke.
