NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For a special promotion this January, Viggle Inc. (NASDAQ: VGGL), creator of the entertainment marketing platform that rewards users for watching TV and listening to music, is offering users a thrilling piece of movie history: Starting today, those who download the Viggle app and register this month can instantly get “The Interview.” Existing Viggle users are also being rewarded with a 50 percent discount off the movie download price. And for those who don’t want to see the movie? Download the Viggle app this month and get 8,000 bonus points to use towards any other movie or save the points for future movies, TV shows, or other rewards. All premium movies and TV shows are provided by Viggle’s partnership with M-GO.
Almost banned from viewing in the United States, “The Interview” is the controversial movie directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The movie features James Franco and Seth Rogen as a host and producer, respectively, behind a popular tabloid-TV show called Skylark Tonight. After learning that North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is a huge fan of the show, they successfully secure a coveted interview with him. As the two characters prepare for their journey to Pyongyang, the CIA steps in and recruits them for an incredible mission: assassinate the dictator.
“’The Interview’ has quickly become one of the most controversial movies in cinematic history, thanks to the incredible circumstances surrounding its release,” said Julie Gerola, VP of Rewards & Loyalty at Viggle Inc. “We created this special offer for the month of January to kick off the year 2015 in a memorable way—for brand new Viggle members and our existing customers alike. This is just one of the many ways that we reward our members for being entertained.”
