LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Sony Pictures Entertainment says it is expanding the digital availability of "The Interview" to top cable, satellite and telecom services, beginning Wednesday and increasing through the weekend.

Starting Thursday, the movie will also be available on PlayStation Network.

In a statement, Sony Pictures chairman and CEO Michael Lynton thanked the new partners and specified that the studio had always sought the widest possible distribution for the R-rated comedy about an assassination attempt on the leader of North Korea.

The film will also expand to 580 independent theatres by Jan. 2.

Major theatre chains cancelled showings of the movie amid threats against theatres.

New platforms include Time Warner Cable, Comcast and DirecTV.
