Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny are back with more surreal satire in the third feature-length episode of South Park for TV – South Park: The Streaming Wars.

Below we explain below how to watch South Park: The Streaming Wars online now from anywhere in the world.

Fans can rejoice knowing they have at least five more years of South Park left after Trey Parker and Matt Stone inked a $900 million deal with Paramount Global. That extends the long-running and ever-fresh show to season 30 and greenlights the production of 14, one hour-long streaming “events” exclusively on Paramount Plus.

The third instalment The Streaming Wars arrives six months after Post-Covid and Post-Covid: The Return of Covid. Details are currently scarce, but expect plot threads from the 25th season of South Park to be picked up again: in particular, one regarding Cartman’s living situation in a hotdog van after he sabotaged his mum’s real estate career and left them both hella broke.

Meanwhile, “an epic conflict” is unfolding. Knowing South Park, that could be caused by anything: a mouldy potato chip, a world leader’s ego left unchecked, or something closer to home – the giants of the streaming world battling over viewers' money and minds, maybe? Read on below for our guide on how to watch South Park: The Streaming Wars online, and stream the special episode exclusively on Paramount Plus wherever you are in the world.
