'South Park' Episodes Available Online for Free3 Dec, 2007 By: John Latchem
MTV Networks plans to make every episode of Comedy Central's “South Park” available online for free viewing by fans, according to a Reuters report.
Every clip of every episode of the hit animated comedy will be accessible through the SouthParkStudios.com Web site beginning next year. Comedy Central in August signed “South park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker to a deal to spread “South Park” materials across the Web, on mobile phones and video games. Currently, SouthParkStudios.com displays a limited number of video clips.
“South Park” is not the first Comedy Central series to receive an extensive online push. More than 13,000 clips from the faux-news program “The Daily Show,” dating back to 1999, are available through ComedyCentral.com.
Many television networks offer ad-supported streaming of recent episodes of current TV shows, but Comedy Central is one of the first to offer extensive video archives for free.
