(Reuters) - Apple Inc said its iTunes store is now carrying Sony Corp's The Interview, the film that angered North Korea and triggered a cyberattack against the studio. "We're pleased to offer The Interview for rental or purchase on the iTunes Store," Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr said in a statement.

The news comes after Sony Pictures released the movie online via Google Inc's YouTube and Google Play, Microsoft Corp's Xbox gaming console and a Sony dedicated website last week.
