This has been rumored for awhile, and today Sony-owned Crackle announced it will stream The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco. The controversial Sony comedy that was the target of an unprecedented hack attack against the studio has pulled in more than $40 million in VOD sales since its limited Christmas Day release.
“At Crackle, we always try to push the envelope when it comes to our own original programming and we’re happy to say the same for our licensed content,” said Eric Berger, EVP Digital Networks, Sony Pictures Television and GM, Crackle. “We are proud to be the first to distribute the film directly to consumers in the ad-supported window.”
