South Park: The Streaming Wars Blu-ray review

Nov 04, 2023- Permalink

Paramount Home Entertainment has released South Park: The Streaming Wars on Blu-ray. In typical South Park fashion, the two special event storylines manage to combine water scarcity, global warming, corporate greed and breast implants while also being a commentary on the glut of product for streaming services.. How will the town of South Park and its four most famous residents – Kyle, Stan, Kenny, and Cartman – handle these issues? I had a chance to take a look.

The 1080p AVC encoded digital transfer is presented in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio. The show’s trademark 2D animation style is served up with great clarity and sharpness for the animation’s line art. As per usual, the colour palette is full of bold primaries.

On the audio side, there’s a single English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack with subtitles available for English SDH. While a pretty front-heavy mix, some effects do make their way to the surround channels. The dialogue is clear and centred.

The single disc has zero special features, nor does it come with a digital code.

The South Park: The Streaming Wars Blu-ray tackles multiple issues in a way only these Colorado school boys can. If you’re a fan of this show and its mature humour, you’ll enjoy this release.
