South Park Creators Partner With Hulu For Exclusive Streaming

By

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone had quite the bombshell of an announcement regarding the show’s distribution at The Television Critics Association summer press tour. The masterminds behind the offensively hilarious, 18-yeaar-old (and counting) hit animated show have partnered with Hulu in an exclusive deal that will see all 244 episodes – and future episodes – of the show on the service. For now, you can watch all of the classic episodes for free either on Hulu or SouthParkStudios.com , but on September 24th the partnership will fully kick in, with the episodes only available on Hulu Plus for $7.99 a month.

That leaves the question, what will become of SouthParkStudios.com? Apparently, starting on September 24th both Hulu and South Park Studios will begin offering a revolving selection of 30 episodes that will be swapped in and out over time. All of the supplemental content originally found on South Park Studios will, however, remain intact.

The reasoning for the partnership is simply to monetize all of the older episodes. But before you go screaming all over the Internet about how Trey Parker and Matt Stone sold out, among other over-exaggerated nonsense, just remember that these guys have been providing the entire library of episodes free of charge for a very long time. At the end of the day, there’s really nothing immoral at all regarding the decision. Even if you don’t have Hulu Plus, is $7.99 a month really going to break your bank? Somehow, I really don’t think so.

Tell us, what are your thoughts on the partnership between South Park and Hulu? Are you in favor of it? Sound off below!

    1.Hulu doesn’t show to anyone outside the U.S.A – Matt and Trey have decided to alienate millions of fans.
    2.Matt and Trey Parker have said in a South Park episodes before that musicians, artists, and others should be happy that billions of people are watching even if it is by illegal downloads. They’ve said if people really like them then they’d be willing to support them in different ways and they should offer their services for free.
    This goes against why Matt and Trey have said in the past.

    Ah hell, with this past new season of south park it was obvious they became full of the themselves with their new intro. They’ve even stated before in the South Park Episode “Free Hat” s06e09 that creators shouldn’t remake and update their work to make graphics look cooler, which they did with the new intro.
    Since book of mormon (Which I loved) the creators have become so full of themselves they have ruined everything for which they stood for.
