The Interview now available to rent or buy on Google Play and YouTube [update: now live in Canada]

Update: Google Canada just took to Twitter with news that those in the great white north can get in on the action now, too!

Original Story: Sony is making The Interview available on Google Play and YouTube one day before its initial limited theatrical release. The movie will be available to rent for $5.99 or purchase for $14.99 from either outlet at 1PM EST/10AM PST today, December 24.

The Interview has been the subject of recent controversy, and Sony had last week pulled the film from theaters after several theater chains opted not to show it, citing security concerns. Sony turned to Google, among other companies, to find alternative avenues of release. In addition to YouTube and Google Play, The Interview will also be released through Microsoft's Xbox Video.
