The unstoppable, unmissable South Park is now part of the growing roster of great TV available on VideoStore of PlayStation Store, meaning you can watch Cartman, Kyle, Stan and Kenny getting into fights, being probed by aliens and generally causing mayhem, at the touch of a button!
For those of you who don’t know, South Park follows the surreal adventures of five school boys in the snowy Colorado town of South Park. Outrageous and always irreverent, South Park has without a doubt provided some of TV’s most controversial moments but it has also built up an army of loyal fans and numerous awards which is pretty impressive for a show that started in 1997.
Now in their 16th season and 15th year, South Park still relies on quick production enabling them to comment on some of the most sensitive and topical issues of the day – this has included excerpts of US president Obama’s inaugaration speech only one day after he issued it. It is this, alongside brilliant and hilarious characters (notably Eric Cartman, who is surely one of the greatest comedy characters of all time) that has ensured the show’s continued success and meant that it is still Comedy Central’s highest rated show averaging 3.5 million viewers an episode.
All this considered you can imagine we are pretty excited about not only making a whole series of South Park available to Video Store users, but also about giving the first episode completely for free!
