South Park: All Online, All for Free

MTV Networks plans to make every clip from every episode of hit animated comedy "South Park" available for free online next year as part of a strategy to reach consumers everywhere. The decision from the biggest division of media conglomerate Viacom Inc follows on the heels of the "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," whose popularity online has helped boost television viewership.

MTV Networks's Comedy Central network began offering in October some 13,000 "Daily Show" videos dating back to 1999. Offering versions of TV shows online has not hurt television ratings, and may have actually helped. "One does not diminish the other by any stretch of the imagination. That is kind of our hat trick," MTV Networks Chairman and Chief Executive Judy McGrath said at the Reuters Media Summit in New York on Wednesday.

i bet you the comedy central website wont allow non-us residences and south park will never air its new episodes in Canada till at least 6 months later. I'll continue using the site I know about.

http://www.southparkzone.com They've been doing it for ages. They get a new episode up only a few days after it's been aired on Comedy Central. You can even download them! It's all free, trust me. There's a little section on the site which addresses the claims of illegal downloading and copyright.

What remaining audience, exactly, are they trying to reach? Odds are, those who want to watch South Park for free already know where to go.

But hey, at least it's legit.

I dont know about you but I've known this is legit too:

www.comedynetwork.ca has all the southpark episodes streaming been like that for a bit now..And also will never sensor Southpark again on their station.

What remaining audience, exactly, are they trying to reach? Odds are, those who want to watch South Park for free already know where to go.
