‘The Interview’ Now Available on iTunes

iTunes has joined the list of digital distributors for Sony Pictures’ “The Interview,” Apple announced Sunday.

As with YouTube, Google Play and Microsoft Xbox, the movie is now available to rent for $5.99 or purchase for $14.99. The aforementioned distributors got a head start on iTunes last week, making the movie available day and date with hundreds of movie theaters across the country.

As one of the leading sources for consuming digital entertainment, iTunes was widely expected to be among the places “The Interview” would end up. But it wasn’t among the first round of deals done, nor was Amazon, which has yet to add the title to its own offerings.

No word on the reason for the lag time. “We’re pleased to offer ‘The Interview’ for rental or purchase on the iTunes Store,” read a statement issued by Apple.

Still more digital distributors could come to the table in the coming days or weeks. Netflix is in negotiations to secure “The Interview,” but there’s no guarantee a deal will be struck.

“The Interview” will be on iTunes in both U.S. and Canada.
