(Reuters) – DISH Networks Inc said on Thursday it would make “The Interview,” the controversial Sony Pictures Entertainment film about the fictitious assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, available as a pay-per-view option starting on Jan 2.

DISH said “The Interview” would be available to rent in both high definition and standard definition.

The film has been blamed for triggering a massive cyberattack on Sony’s movie studio. On Dec. 17, Sony canceled the Christmas Day release of the movie after hackers threatened violence against movie theaters and some theater chains refused to show it.
