Microsoft’s Xbox Video platform will also have the movie, as will a dedicated standalone website for the film.
Google confirmed the announcement in a press release on Wednesday, stating that “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.”
Sony announced on Tuesday that it would allow a limited release of the film in select U.S. movie theaters on Christmas Day. The decision came after major theater chains said last week that they would not show the film on that original release date.
