Legal and Free Southpark Videos for Streaming

Most of you probably already heard of this, but for those who didn’t: Southpark is now available as fully legal streaming videos.

The archive on the Southpark website contains all existing episodes, except the most recently broadcasted. Each episode is interrupted by three short commercials.

The commercials aren’t that annoying and not comparable in length to commercial blocks used on TV. (Although I can’t see the ad for the Imagination Land DVD anymore, having seen it in most episodes of the 11 seasons that I have seen so far *g*)

According to the press release, Southpark’s creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were sick of having to download their own show illegally all the time, so they built a legal alternative.

Even brand new episodes can be seen online. When it is broadcasted, it can be watched online for seven days. Then it disappears for 30 days and then returns for good.

The streaming videos are available to users from almost the whole world (unlike similar projects which are often only available in the USA). Only Great Britain, Australia and "some foreign territories" are excluded due to licensing issues.

Cool thing. I hope others will follow. :)
