NEW YORK, March 25 (UPI) -- The creators of "South Park" have established a Web site offering full episodes and clips from the animated U.S. show's 12 seasons, their studio announced.
South Park Digital Studios LLC -- the joint venture between "South Park" masterminds Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Comedy Central, a division of MTVN Entertainment Group, a unit of Viacom -- announced Tuesday the creation of southparkstudios.com.
The Internet site, which rolled out a beta version last Wednesday, has already received more than 3 million page views, more than 2 million video plays and more than 1 million streams of full episodes.
"The 'South Park' phenomenon began as a viral video clip. Now it continues its digital and creative leadership with the launch of an extensive site devoted entirely to 'South Park,'" Doug Herzog, president of MTV Networks' Entertainment Group, said in a statement. "Southparkstudios.com is a true representation of Matt and Trey's vision and is the ultimate online destination for 'South Park' fans -- allowing them full access to every 'South Park' episode ever created."
"We got really sick of having to download our own show illegally all the time so we gave ourselves a legal alternative," Stone and Parker added.
