No one would force you to use those site except your own desire to get the episodes. In the past, Matt and Trey encouraged fans to get the episodes any way they could. Soon after, this site appeared, but it was a few years before it began streaming the episodes, so fans didn't need to go to those sites anymore.
This site was created in order to keep fans interested in the show, but to stay afloat, it's gotta pay the people who run it, like nall and the other admins (moderators, like me, are not paid for moderating this message board). And for that pay to happen, it's gotta serve up ads (and the site gets some money back from the sponsors). So, it's us fans who keep this site up, not Matt and Trey. All they have to provide is the show.
Will, Viacom does not need this site to produce one single dollar. If it makes the TV show more valuable, it's done its job. Viacom doesn't need to rely on streaming for revenue. One bit. South Park is a gold mine. At this point, trying to make more money is like trying for a golden toilet seat.
Explain why the Simpsons just did the polar opposite of what South Park did. My explanation? They want long term, happy fans. South Park is looking to make a money grab.
I urge fans to check out the southpark subreddit (just /r/southpark). No one is deleting theads there and no one is trying to tow a company line.
I'm out of here until Hulu is gone.

No idea, except that South Park did this seven years ago. Maybe in seven years The Simpsons will reverse itself and do what South Park did this summer.

See you in 2017 then, if Matt and Trey go for more seasons. Pretty sure Hulu will stick around too. In which case, happy trails to you.
Before Hulu, I used:
Now I simply use:
And guess what? It works! Well, for the most part. The "View active topics" link, and similar links, don't show me the entire page. But everything else works
Ppl will still buy Blu-Ray/Regular DVDs of the show, and then they'll have them forever, or download them from iTunes or as you suggest, from torrents. The show is still on Comedy Central, and is also out there on various channels through syndication. Yes, Hulu+ is a pain, having to pay for it and all, but for every fan they may loose, other fans will join Hulu+ so it's a net gain for M&T.
Are you kidding, a 30-second ad before the theme song, and TWO longer ads after it before the episode even starts??
And then breaks have ads of a length unheard of in online streaming, its as if you're watching television.
And you think this is going to coerce us to subscribe?
Its easy to watch any south park episode for free, we don't need HULU anyways. It's a waste of time.

Haa, I love that line.
Not using torrents because I should be able to watch the episodes here on this HULU site but I can't watch the episode here yet. Something's wrong.
1802 - same problem as with 1801 and I can't watch it. 1803 - not watchable yet!
For now, I'll use the spscriptorium and hopefully that's enough. Disappointed with the HULU site so far. During the break I'll figure out what to do. For now, very disappointed with the HULU site.

Volume works (albeit low volume, but video is terrible on this site. Other sites work just fine, audio and visual, but just not on this site).
My schedule is such that I am unavailable on Wednesdays at 10:00 PDT, so I can't watch the show live. I have no DVR. So I need this HULU site to watch the episodes. But it doesn't work.
For instance I, myself, will now just torrent the entire season. When a new episode comes out might as well torrent the small file to add to my large collection... Yay no ads! Still my laziness is upset by this and I am quite disgruntled about this Hulu+ bullsh*t.
