The controversial movie by Sony pictures “The Interview” which led to Sony systems hacking has finally made it way and into Itunes, the Interview debut on Itune few days after been officially released on Youtube, Google Play, Xbox, Seetheinterview.com and other video platform.
You can watch and stream the interview live on itunes for $6 or to buy for $15.
The move appears to be a reversal in course for Apple, which had reportedly declined Sony’s request to stream the comedy, which depicts actors Seth Rogen and James Franco as TV journalists planning to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The movie was slated to be released in theaters on December 25, but its release was initially canceled following threats of violence against theaters.
The threats were apparently made by hackers behind a security breach at Sony Pictures in late November that resulted in a massive and embarrassing spill of company secrets. The FBI has said that North Korea was behind the Sony hack.
President Obama chastised Sony for the cancellation, as did many celebrities and would-be viewers.
On Tuesday, Sony did an about-face, announcing that it would release “The Interview” in theaters that wanted to show it — likely more than 200 theaters. Sony also said that it was working on getting the movie into “more platforms and more theaters.”
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
