You don't need to leave your house to watch "The Interview." Sony Pictures released the comedy on digital platforms Wednesday.

The online release comes a day after the studio reversed its previous decision not to show the movie after hackers stole internal documents and emails from Sony. The U.S. said North Korea was behind the hack. In "The Interview," Seth Rogen and James Franco play journalists tasked by the CIA with killing North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Viewers can rent the movie for $5.99 or buy it for $14.99. Rentals are good for 48 hours. The movie's running time is 1 hour, 52 minutes.
