Since 1997, South Park has been a show that can make you laugh and make you think at the same time. With its unique paper cut-out style animation, it’s been a top show for many generations over its (at present) 23 seasons.
South Park has also been notoriously hard to find online, but thankfully it’s become much easier in recent years. It used to be available on Hulu, but it no longer offers it at this time. But don’t worry — this article will show you how to access it and be your guide to watching South Park today!
What streaming services have South Park?
You have a few good options for streaming South Park without having to rent or buy it! If you want to watch it for free without subscribing to any streaming services, head to a website like All Streaming Programs or Comedy Central’s website. These are great options to be aware of as they are quick and easy.
If you are subscribed to a service such as HBO Max or Amazon Prime Video, these are also great services that offer South Park as a part of their regular programming. On all of these options, the South Park specials — which are longer mini-movies — are offered as well. Something to note about Amazon Prime Video, though, is South Park is available only to rent or buy, not to stream. HBO Max offers South Park as a stream.
Another thing to remember is there are 5 South Park episodes that portray the prophet Muhammed as an animated character and they’re banned online.

The best streaming service to watch South Park is on Comedy Central. It’s the television network where South Park was aired and the website has excellent streams of the show at no cost.
In terms of a monthly subscription service, the best option would be HBO Max. HBO has one low monthly fee which gives you access to many of the top TV shows and movies, including South Park. Apple TV is another great option, but South Park is not included in the regular programming. It is easy to add HBO Max onto an Apple TV subscription, but you must take into account the price of Apple TV’s hardware and that you’d still be paying full price for the HBO Max subscription in addition to the Apple TV subscription. Amazon Prime Video is a great way to watch South Park, but only if you want to rent or buy it. Amazon Prime Video does not offer a stream for South Park.
Hulu is not an option to watch South Park, but it is still a great streaming service if you are interested in getting it. The prices shown above are for the Hulu + Live TV package and just the standard Hulu streaming service. There’s a pretty drastic price difference between the two.
Can you watch South Park for free?

This wonderful news comes with a few options, as previously mentioned. You can use your HBO Max subscription to stream South Park, which means you would already be paying your monthly subscription fee, but no fee for streaming South Park specifically.

What is South Park about?
South Park has a large cast of memorable characters, but focuses on the adventures of four young boys — Cartman, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny — in South Park, Colorado. The show is a mostly satirical reflection of the world and its current events. It’s also well known for going into uncharted territory with its often political commentary.
South Park is not a show for everybody — but those who know, know! It’s gained a large and dedicated following due to its unique animation and crude, but well-written humor. South Park has won 5 Primetime Emmys and has won 18 awards in total along with 90 nominations.
There are currently 23 seasons, 2 specials, and 1 full-length film.
Upcoming seasons for South Park
South Park is still going strong! The creators have recently announced a new deal with Viacom CBS that will see the show continuing to be in production for regular seasons and episodes until at least 2027.
In addition to the new seasons, they agreed to continue creating the “specials,” or short films. It’s planned that they will release two of the specials along with the new South Park seasons.
Best Way to Watch South Park
The absolute best way to watch South Park would be to go directly to Comedy Central’s website and choose which episode or special you want to see! After that, one of the other free South Park streaming websites would be second best. These two are the best options if you don’t have an HBO Max subscription.
If you have an HBO Max subscription already, South Park can be easily found in their programming. If you prefer to own digital or physical versions of South Park, head over to Amazon Prime Video and choose which seasons and episodes you wish to buy or rent.
Don’t let the title of this article confuse you — South Park was available on Hulu for many years. However, Hulu does not currently offer South Park in any format.
