Rather than having a dozen, show-specific iOS apps to follow your favorite Comedy Central shows, the network has finally bundled the content into a single app featuring full episodes (listen up, cable cutters) for free. Much like Hulu and on-demand services through cable providers, the Comedy Central app will feature the latest episode of several shows from the network the day after it airs… no cable subscription required, no joke.
The list of free shows includes The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report, South Park, @midnight, and original digital shorts. For cable subscribers, there’s even more content available including full seasons of new shows like Tosh.0 and archived seasons of shows like Chappelle’s Show and RENO 911. expand full story
