The Verge‘s Ross Miller is reporting that The Interview will be available online starting today (i.e., 1 pm Eastern) via YouTube Movies, Google Play, Xbox Videos and a dedicated website SeeTheInterview.com. $5.99 to rent, $14.99 to own an HD version. Candy-assed, corporate-minded iTunes is staying on the sidelines for now. Sony’s PlayStation Network is also a non-participant.
Earlier: Re/Code‘s Peter Kafka reported this morning that The Interview will be streamable/rentable starting Christmas morning on YouTube, Google’s Google Play store and via Sony’s own site. Kafka adds that Stripe, an online payment site, “will help Sony rent the film on its site.”
