South Park on Instant Watch

I’ve been a fan of the Netflix Instant Watch service for almost two years now. imageThen when they announced their partnership with Xbox 360 late last year I got my fiancée to become a fan of the service too. Once she realized that she could watch thousands of shows and movies instantly it was all good. Earlier this year they announced a partnership with Starz to bring some premium movies to the service. Right now were sitting with three movies out for the last two months still unwatched cause everything we have been watching is online Dog the bounty hunter, Weeds season 1 and now season 2 and so much more all watched via Instant Watch. This past Tuesday just like every new DVD Tuesday they released South Park Seasons 1 though 9 to the service.
