Netflix To Stream The Interview
Online video service Netflix said Tuesday that it will start streaming The Interview, the latest online streaming service to offer up the title. Netflix announced the move on its Q4 earnings call Tuesday, saying it will offer up The Interview to U.S. and Canadian subscribers on Saturday. Netflix has major operations in Los Angeles, and the studio behind The Interview, Sony Pictures, is based in Culver City. The Interview spawned a massive hacking of Sony Pictures and international sparring between North Korea and the United States. The title debuted on YouTube, Xbox, and Google Play after hackers threatened a 9/11-style attack on movie theaters who showed the film, although the film was subsequently released to theaters anyway.
