Why can't we watch south park in canada again?

Postby luvztospooge » Wed May 29, 2013 10:14 am

Seriously we've been waiting for years.

I can't even list the amount of times I've been told "oh dude you know they just stream every episode for free on southparkstudios.com?"

Then I have to explain that I can't watch them. Then said person is absolutely baffled. Because it makes no sense.

Not to mention when we get redirected to the comedy network that doesn't have ANY episodes whatsoever. Despite claiming we can watch "recent" episodes. Why can a person from, oh I dunno... Malaysia, stream south park but I, a person in north america can't?

Like... really? Where's the episodes? When I clicked it said the comedy network has episodes available. But there clearly isn't. Why?

Do I really have to pirate every season? I just want to watch the show.

We on the forum don't have a clue why. If you have the money, buy the DVDs and watch them all you want.

This might be happening because it shows Canadians farting on each other and destroys the reputation of them. Except from that Canadians are almost in every season and they are being showed as "humialiated people" so they might be hiding this show from Canadians just of not to get banned or sued from them. That doesn't happen only here, there are other "products" such as the game Tango Down which is not allowed to be played in lots of countries...

Nope, it's just another one of those silly licensing situations. It's all about Viacom and money. The idea that Canadians would want to shelter themselves from being the butt of jokes on an American show is laughable. Nobody has a better sense of humor about themselves than Canadians.

Get the plug-in for firefox called "Modify Headers," use google's IP 74.125.127.100, job done :) Certainly works in the UK anyway. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefo ... y-headers/

As for http://www.thecomedynetwork.ca/Shows/So ... kage=93490 , the "episodes" shown are two parts of an interview that don't play. All I get is "There was an ERROR loading this CONTENT" WTF VIACOM???

You can complain about this on Comedy's FB page.

www.watchcartoononline.com

this site basically has every south park episode only a couple don't work.

try using http://www.free-tv-video-online.me/internet/southpark/ if the above doesn't work even though it's not as reliable
