Cable, Satellite TV Providers Will Offer "The Interview"

Sony Pictures

Several of the nation’s largest cable and satellite TV providers will offer “The Interview” to subscribers, broadening the number of outlets to distribute the film at the center of a sweeping cyber attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment. The studio initially canceled its Christmas Day release of the R-rated comedy after hackers threatened violence at theaters. It subsequently distributed the movie at 300 independent theaters as well as through online services such as Google Play. The bawdy Seth Rogen/James Franco comedy will be offered as early as Wednesday through video-on-demand and pay-per-view services of Comcast*, Time Warner Cable, AT&T U-verse TV, Verizon FiOS, DirecTV and Vudu, Walmart’s digital VOD service. It also will be available through Sony’s own PlayStation Network, starting Thursday.

*Comcast owns NBCUniversal, which is a minority investor in Revere Digital, Re/code’s parent company
