Wanna watch episode 3 of season 8? No problem, simply go to SouthParkStudios.com. This website is a new business venture between South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker and Comedy Central.
They probably did this to make money (revenue split of 50/50 between Comedy and Stone/Parker) but more importantly to slow down the broadcasting of South Park episodes on sites such as BitTorrents. etc…
The downside is (you know, there is always a downside), that videos are not embeddable (which means you can’t add it to your awesome myspace page) and there are ads includes in the streams.
The website is very “flash based” which makes it look good but a little slow. At any rate, it is pretty cool you can now stream any South Park episode.
