Sony is bringing The Interview to cable and satellite TV

The Wall Street Journal reports that Sony Pictures has completed deals that will bring The Interview to cable and satellite packages in the US, including Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and DirectTV. The company says the movie, which sees James Franco and Seth Rogen visit North Korea to blow up Kim Jong Un’s head, will be available to rent or buy on major pay-TV services over the next few days.

Michael Lynton, CEO of Sony Pictures, reportedly stepped in to personally orchestrate the deal that will make the movie available on the small screen. The move will mean that the controversial film, the target of ire from the North Korean regime, can already be seen online, on subscription TV services, and in hundreds of independent theaters, little…

Seth Rogen and James Franco livetweet The Interview just three days after release

It’s a fairly regular occurrence now for actors and directors to livetweet along with their movies months or years after their theatrical release, but Seth Rogen and James Franco’s tweet-a-long viewing of The Interview, held today at 2pm using the hashtag #TheInterview, is unprecedented. It’s only three days since The Interview, the bro-comedy that sees both Rogen and Franco infiltrate North Korea to kill Kim Jong Un, officially hit theaters and download services. Rogen, who co-directed the movie, noted the speed at which the movie made it to the small screen.

Oops: people are downloading and keeping Sony’s rental for The Interview

It’s been an interesting day for Kernel, the site powering Sony’s digital rentals of The Interview in the US. Not only did it briefly buckle under the pressure of people hammering its site to watch the movie, but apparently it didn’t do a great job in securing copies of the film, either. Those who spent $ 5.99 to watch a 48-hour rental of The Interview on their browser could simply share the URL of the film with anyone else. Worse yet, anyone who had access to the link was able to save an unprotected copy locally through a super obvious loophole, something The Verge was able to confirm from different browsers and locations.

It’s OK if you don’t watch The Interview on Christmas, or ever

There was never any question this week that I would be spending part of my Christmas watching The Interview. When it was announced the morning that the film would get an online release at 10 a.m. PST, without missing a beat I yelled to my mom in the next room (who I am currently visiting for the holidays) that we would have to cancel a day trip we had planned. Welcome to the hot take workshop: when a story snowballs to the proportion that the Sony hack and near-non-release of The Interview has, a certain kind of professional easily becomes a slave to the feeds and the whims of the individuals at the center of the story.

But having now finally watched Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and screenwriter Dan Sterling’s film, I can confirm with…
