Popular torrent service BitTorrent has said that they’ll gladly stream ‘The interview’ – the movie said to be behind the massive North Korea hack attack on Sony Pictures.

Sony has said that they intend to deliver the movie on a “different platform” following their decision to pull it from its Christmas Day release. The company did say that no streaming or download service had come forward with an offer to provide the movie, but now one has.

In a statement to VentureBeat, BitTorrent said:

“BitTorrent Bundle is in fact the very best way for Sony to take back control of their film, to not acquiesce to terrorist threats, and to ensure a wide audience can view the film safely. It would also strike a strong note for free speech.”

It would certainly be interesting if Sony Pictures did decide to go with BitTorrent, a service so commonly linked to movie piracy. If they don’t go with them, how could they release it? The PlayStation Network is a way, but I don’t think Sony wants to risk that with yet another hack. We shall soon find out.
