The eye-popping $75 million pact announced Monday by Comedy Central and the creators of “South Park” may be the most prominent example of the Internet as a bona fide back end window alongside syndication and DVD. The duo of Matt Stone and Trey Parker will get a 50-50 ad split on digital platforms but not on television.

The new extension will bring three more 14-episode seasons — the same volume Stone and Parker re-signed for in 2005. “Park” is in place now through 2011, bringing its stint at Comedy Central to 15 seasons going back to 1997.

“Three more years of ‘South Park’ will give us the opportunity to offend that many more people,” Stone said. “And since Trey and I are in charge of the digital side of ‘South Park,’ we can offend people on their cell phones, game consoles and computers too.”
