The quiet little Colorado mountain hamlet of South Park is just like any small town in America. Except there are cow-probing aliens, rabid Turkey outbreaks, and there’s a kid named Kenny who just can’t stop getting killed.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s animated series starring Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny has made the world cackle while stirring up controversy in the process. It’s not The Simpsons, it’s not King of the Hill, it’s not even Family Guy. It’s far raunchier, nastier, in some would argue, funnier than any adult-oriented animated comedy program.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream South Park.

Where to stream South Park
Comedy Central is available on a few of the major live TV streaming services. When trying to decide which one is best for you, you’ll want to weigh the cost, the other channels you’ll receive, and the compatible devices for streaming.
South Park on Philo

South Park on FuboTV
FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. Depending on the package, you can access as many as 181 FuboTV channels. If you’re looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier. The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel coming on board in 2020, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.
To stream South Park, you’ll want to dock in at the FuboTV Standard level.
