South Park Studios is South Park's official website. Excluding "Super Best Friends", "200", and "201", it has all of the South Park episodes available for streaming. It also has various South Park-related games and an avatar/character creator.
Every time a new episode comes out, it appears on this site. However, because of an agreement made with Comedy Central, one week after a new episode has aired, it is temporarily removed. After an additional three weeks, the new episode is put back up permanently for streaming.
Due to the controversy over showing the image of Muhammad, three episodes have been taken off the site; "Super Best Friends", "200" and "201", although some clips from "200" can be viewed. It's not known whether or not these episodes will ever appear on South Park Studios again in the future.
The website, or certain sections of the website, are unavailable in some countries. Localized versions of the website are available in many countries, such as southparkstudios.co.uk in the UK and Ireland.
On July 12, 2014, it was announced that Hulu had signed a three-year deal purchasing exclusive online streaming rights to the South Park library. Through the deal, the South Park Studios website became powered by the Hulu video and advertising experience. Along with this, the domain name changed from "southparkstudios.com" to "southpark.cc.com".Previously, the show had been removed from Netflix, along with other titles. The new site launch caused a few technical issues, but everything was fixed and fans are able to watch full, uncensored episodes and clips again on southpark.cc.com and Hulu. For viewers outside the US, episodes and clips still stream through the “classic” South Park player and nothing changed aside from the new site design. A handful of countries have their own localized versions of South Park sites – fans in these countries can continue to watch episodes and interact with other fans exactly as before.
It was announced that beginning in September 2014, following the premiere of the eighteenth season, only 30 select episodes will be featured for free viewing at a time on the website, with new episodes being available for an entire month starting the day following their original airings. The entire series is available for viewing on Hulu Plus.
