The streaming wars has commenced and HBO Max just grabbed one of the largest animated comedy shows out there. That’s right, HBO Max snagged the entirety of “South Park” with exclusive rights to streaming the adult humored television show.
Although the company didn’t release the terms of the arrangement with the creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, or Viacom, it is known that the rights for the show were up earlier this month for around $450-500 million.
Love it or hate it, “South Park” is a legacy show that has a comparable following to other comedies such as “The Office“, “Friends“, “The Simpsons“, and “Seinfeld“. It was an incredible move that HBO Max managed to get the exclusive rights to the show as well as the next three seasons.
