I'm not sure why they allow the full episodes, but it kicks ass. And even if they disallowed the full episode, you can always get it at South Park Zone.

They have ads in the episode to gain revenue, so it's all good.

Well, Matt and Trey know that a lot of fans don't have cable and so download the episodes to watch them, and they were okay with that for many years, but they also thought the fans would prefer to watch the episodes from the official site, since they can give the fans video of higher quality than you get from your own TV recordings. And if you want them uncensored, here's the place to see them that way. And they wanted some money back, which is why there are ads in the episodes. That became possible when they got their three-year extension last year. So, we fans can watch the high-quality episodes here and they get some money back from the ads you see in them. Win-win.

Its basically free money. The only catch is keeping the site costs below the revenue, I would imagine thats not too hard.

Plus its an awesome way to make.............5 million dollars!

Cartman....anybody....no didn't think that one would turn any heads.
