The year couldn't end without one last piece of news about "The Interview." Sony announced on Wednesday that it had reached an agreement with multiple on-demand platforms to expand the release of the oft-discussed comedy. According to Sony, "The Interview" will be available to stream via affiliates for iN Demand (Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Bright House Networks, Cox Communications) and VUBIQUITY (Cablevision, Charter and AT&T U-verse TV) as well as on Verizon FiOS, VUDU and DirecTV. Those services join Google Play, YouTube Movies, iTunes and XBox Video as on-demand distributors of "The Interview." In addition to all those options, Sony revealed it will also finally release "The Interview" via its PlayStation Network beginning on Thursday. The price point for rental across all platforms is $5.99.
"We have always sought the widest possible distribution for 'The Interview,' and want to thank our new partners for helping us make that happen," Sony Entertainment chairman and CEO Michael Lynton said in a statement.
Through its first four days of on-demand release, "The Interview" earned $15 million from rentals and purchases (users can own the film for $14.99). It closes 2014 as the top-selling movie on YouTube and Google Play.
