El SEGUNDO, Calif. (BRAIN) — “The Program,” director Stephen Frears’ feature film recounting the rise and fall of Lance Armstrong, has been made available by AT&T on the DirecTV Cinema pay-per-view service a month ahead of its theatrical release.

The film stars Ben Foster (“Lone Survivor”) as Armstrong and Chris O’Dowd (“Bridesmaids”) as Irish sports journalist David Walsh, who becomes convinced that banned substance fueled Armstrong’s Tour de France victories and begins to hunt for evidence that will expose the celebrated cyclist.

“The Program” will be available for 72-hour rental in 1080p HD (Blu-ray format) for $12.99 and in standard definition (SD) for $11.99. The film, which debuted at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, reaches U.S. theaters March 18.
