Warner Bros. Discovery files lawsuit against Paramount over ‘South Park’ streaming rights
You’re not alone if the Paramount+ South Park movie agreement looked strange considering HBO Max earned an exclusive for the property. Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) has filed a lawsuit against Paramount Global for allegedly violating the terms of a $500 million deal that granted HBO Max streaming rights to South Park in 2019. WBD says that Paramount “blatantly intended” to drive consumers towards its service by not only supplying additional specials but also by underdelivering on promised regular season programming to the HBO service.
