In Sony Pictures’ hunt to find a place to show ‘The Interview’, they reportedly asked Apple, who supposedly declined the offer.
According to The New York Times, Sony apparently asked the White House to help them get it on iTunes, but Apple was having none of it, “at least not on a speedy timetable”.
“It remained unclear, however, whether any on-demand service would take “The Interview.” According to people briefed on the matter, Sony had in recent days asked the White House for help in lining up a single technology partner — Apple, which operates iTunes — but the tech company was not interested, at least not on a speedy time table. An Apple spokesman declined to comment.”
We reported yesterday on the news that the movie will now see its original Christmas Day release, showing at a handful of cinemas, but it’s still unclear as to how everybody will be able to see it.
