TORONTO, June 22, 2015 /CNW/ - CraveTV™, Canada's premium TV streaming service, announced today the launch of
another exclusive heavyweight franchise, with the addition of SOUTH PARK on Wednesday, July 1. The series catalogue, featuring 18 seasons and more than 250 episodes,
will begin streaming only on CraveTV on Canada Day. The series will be

Today's announcement represents the latest acquisition of a blockbuster
television franchise for CraveTV. SOUTH PARK joins a stellar lineup of premium comedy streaming exclusively on
CraveTV including: SEINFELD, CHEERS, THE BIG BANG THEORY, CURB YOUR
ENTHUSIASM, INSIDE AMY SCHUMER, FRASIER, DEADBEAT, and more.
"SOUTH PARK is an iconic franchise and its exclusive acquisition is a milestone
event for CraveTV and its subscribers," said Mike Cosentino, Senior
Vice-President, Programming, CraveTV. "Comedy is wildly popular with
the CraveTV audience, so we're delivering another binge-worthy series
in response to that demand."
Throughout the series' 18 seasons, Emmy® and Tony® award-winning
creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker (The Book of Mormon) have affectionately made Canada a running punchline. In addition to
parodying Canada as a country that is as bizarre as Oz. The series also
features many Canadian references with all Canadians in the series
featured with floppy heads and large mouths. In perhaps the most iconic
Canadian-themed episode, Canada goes on strike to demand "money and more money" but is ignored by other world leaders, who bring in Danish people
or the "Canadians of Europe" to fill in for the strikers. Other famous
parodies include the Royal Wedding, in which the Princess of Canada is
kidnapped by the "Canadian Giant" during the ceremony.
CraveTV features thousands of hours of premium TV programming, including
HBO's entire off-air library (THE WIRE, THE SOPRANOS, SEX AND THE CITY,
ENTOURAGE, and more), as well as the SHOWTIME collection (THE AFFAIR,
RAY DONOVAN, PENNY DREADFUL, and more), both exclusive to CraveTV. The
