Although The Interview won’t be screened in most theaters around the country, you can still show your support for this over-hyped movie by watching it online. The movie is available for rent or purchase right now from several places, including, YouTube, Google Play, and Xbox.

If you have an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, this is the best way to watch The Interview.

Step 1: From your desktop computer, go to YouTube and search for The Interview. As an alternative, you can save yourself a few clicks and go there directly from here. Note there is no way to rent or purchase the movie directly from your Apple TV or iPhone. You must initiate the purchase or rental from a computer.

Step 2: You will see a green button saying “From $5.99.” Click on it and you will have two options. You can either rent the movie for $5.99 or buy it for $14.99. Select the option you want.

Step 4: The movie will now be placed in your “Purchases” folder on YouTube.

Step 5: From there, you can access the movie directly from your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. Simply launch the YouTube app and navigate to your Purchases folder and start watching the movie

Once you’ve watched The Interview, come back here and let us know what you think of it.

    Only for US residents 🙁

        The best way to watch The Interview is to install the “bigU Movies” app from Cydia on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch..

      • johnpowers

        I just downloaded a great hd quality of the movie “The Interview” from the “bigU Movies” app I got from Cydia. I think either xsellize repo, insanelyi repo, Appcake or Zeusmos has the bigU Movies app

      • Jerry

        Scammer scum

      • is a scam site, so don’t register or pay

      • Jerry

        Yeah let’s pay 19.99 to this low budget app with probably all Cam videos lol

    • Peter


      • Macs

        tried and i can’t apparently you need an US account and you must use an US Credit card just like the Apple Store.

        I would definitely buy it but if you plan to release something online make it world wide SO now i will look for the torrent

      • Derp

        Just get it off piraebay. It’s already there. Easy

      • Seems a quite bit fishy that they only want US payments, especially after all the nonsense around this movie.
        Even if I didn’t use torrents, I would never pay Sony (the company whose administrators don’t even have access to their most sensitive files) even a penny if it involved giving them my CC # right now.
        You think the hackers won’t be going after YouTube and anyone associated with the payments of this movie? I can be dang sure they will be!

      • mmmPizza!

        Sounds like you have a rip in your tinfoil hat. Might want to have that looked at, or just build a new one…

    • Donovan

      They want you to pirate. Aint nobody wants yo money, only US money.
      No but really, there’s no other option but to pirate I guess.

      • No but really, there’s no other option but to pirate I guess.

        There is one other option. You can buy giftcards via a middle-man / re-seller and then use these gift cards to buy the movie. Legally speaking though I don’t know where you’d stand.

    • Yep even the YouTube video is only for US residents. What sort of WORLD WIDE web is this?

      I actually tried using a VPN too and both my debit card and PayPal account are marked as unsupported payment methods (hint: there’s nothing wrong with either of them). It looks like as usual file sharing is the superior product and the legal services offered are inferior and won’t even accept valid payment methods.

    Suck it North Korea!

    • They made it more popular by wanting to block it. As a country they should have known that would happen. Sony thanks them for the free advertising.

      • Alawyy96

        so true! What if the movie was suck?! it’ll be schock for the American society =D

  • Dani Hayes


    • Chocolatewe

      lets bring it!

  • jack

    it is on kickasstorrents for free

    • Rahimo

      Thank you man !! One more question, is it HD ??!

      • onesimpleclik

        Yep. 720p & 1080p copies available.

  • Rares

    Happy holidays iDB fans and staff!

  • Justin Rowe

    Not available in the UK….luckily we have the Internet.
    Oops Sony you dropped the ball again 😛

    Santa relies on girl power. Santa’s sleigh is pulled by a team of reindeer in full antlers. Male reindeer shed their antlers in the winter. So unless every rendering of Santa’s sleigh is wrong, Santa’s reindeer are all female.

  • MrSergioRamos

    Easier better way to watch the movie

    • Merman123

      Enjoy the lag!

      • MrSergioRamos

        Didn’t have any lag… Unless your still on dialup… Sorry but not so sorry

  • ShawnTXDFW

    Waiting for it to be on Moviebox!

    • basketball247

      hey movie box hasnt been updating any movies for me lately, is it the same for you

      • ShawnTXDFW

        Same. It just updated on my iPad though but nothing new.

      • bolencki13

        Glad to know I am not the only one experiencing this problem.

      • Rowan09

        It’s happen now and then, but it’s been working fine for me for over 2 weeks now. Check Cydia because they did have an update.

    • Vvbreaker

      it’s probably because they are on holiday and the shows are set to auto update

  • Scape

    I bet the American Govt wouldn’t let a film about the assassination of Obama be made. So why they talking when NK tkaes offensive. You’re just asking for trouble with this kind of plot.

    • Parker Crain

      Actually, they couldn’t/wouldn’t stop it, not with the freedoms of America

      • Scape

        Is what you think. Truthfully they would and can shut it down if they want to. Doesn’t have to be directly either They have their ways.

      • Parker Crain

        Have you seen social media? I’m sorry, we both have our own opinions, but things spread instantly anymore, whether it is the truth or not. Just look at ferguson, tons of incorrect facts mixed in with real ones in a matter of seconds. It would be out there ASAP. And this whole argument is based on an assumption and you know what assuming makes… lol

      • Rowan09

        It wouldn’t be released as anything but independent. No major American film company would pick up that movie.

    • Arturo Millan

      Im going to give you a list of movies with a plot of killing the U.S president

      Death of a President (2006)
      End Game(2006)

      White House Down(2013)
      Olympus has fallen (2013)

      Between MANY more

  • I had a much easier route:
    Step 1: Go to TorrentDay
    Step 2: Download

  • Bugs Bunnay

    just finished watching the movie in defiance to them norks. yep. it was a satisfying victory indeed.

  • John Wickham

    Just watched… and wow, that was not good. If it hadn’t been for all the hype surrounding it, I wouldn’t have given it my time.

    • Yeah that was a downright horrible movie and hard to make it through. I fell asleep but I’m sure the last third wasn’t any better.

  • onesimpleclik

    Torrent it 😉

  • 9to5Slavery


  • Daniel

    Watch it from solarmovie, no need to download anything.

  • techraxx

    The best way to watch The Interview is to install the “bigU Movies” app from Cydia on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

    • BigU looks like a pile of garbage. I don’t get all the hype for that app on here. It isn’t free anyway, while many others sources are.

  • Acid wh0Le

    Sacha Baron Cohen should have played Franco’s part!

    • Benjamin Szentpaly

      OMG YES! Upvote so they can remake the whole movie with Sacha!

  • Tommy Gumbs

    Just watch it. It was OK.

  • Mondo

    I wasn’t impressed

  • jack

    the official one is ONLY available in US.. that’s why pirated versions are better

  • G.Dash

    Actaully the best way to watch the movie is on XBMC already watched it lol it is hilarious great movie

    • Benjamin Szentpaly

      Yeah or Plex

  • guerdeval .

    It’s on Bitsoup too, lucky I have apple TV 1 so I can download to the hard drive eh!

  • McApple

    Why support such a movie?? Only provocs aggression for nothing!!

  • Xee

    The whole thing is a publicity stunt orchestrated by US and Sony. Sony get mega publicity for a mediocre movie and the U.S. gets to mind control the perception of the American public towards North Korea.

    • George

      And start passing laws to censor the internet

  • Benjamin Szentpaly

    Step 1: Go to Kickass Torrents
    Step 2: Search for The Interview and download it with your preferred torrent client.
    Step 3: Download the Plex Server Client for PC
    Step 4: Download Plex for iOS
    Step 5: Enjoy your movie (on your Chromecast, what I did)

  • Roy Chang
