South Park was first released on DVD in the United States by Rhino Home Video (subsidiary of Warner Music Group) in late 1998,[1] but these DVD releases soon went out of print. They were then released in Europe starting in the year 2000. They were later re-released in the United States, starting in 2002. Paramount Home Entertainment (a sister company to Comedy Central) began releasing the seasons in Australia in October 2007.
