VIVID ENTERTAINMENT TO LAUNCH GOOGLE TV CHANNEL TODAY
Vivid Entertainment, the world’s leading adult film studio, said today it will launch Vivid for Google TV, the first TV app designed to make sexually explicit content available through the new Google TV set top device. The new channel will stream content in high definition to subscriber television sets and computer screens. Members of the official Vivid website (Vivid.com) will get access to their Google TV channel for free.
Vivid for Google TV will be available at no additional cost to subscribers to www.vivid.com, which currently offers a package of features such as streaming of Vivid’s award-winning adult movies, celebrity sex tapes, XXX parodies of popular superheroes, educational videos and other content. Access to the site is restricted to persons over 18 years old.
“Vivid for Google TV gives our fans a new way to enjoy Vivid movies in high quality HD and with other benefits that provide a very appealing, highly enjoyable, and user friendly experience,” said Steven Hirsch, co-founder and co-chairman of Vivid. “It is a central part of our making Vivid available everywhere concept, which gives fans unified access to our content through their personal computers, mobile devices, tablets, television sets and DVD players.”
Mr. Hirsch said no other adult companies are currently deploying a true Internet system that includes 24/7 access and constantly streaming movie content. “We spent more than a year developing a code base for a robust, standalone Internet-TV channel with a friendly interface for the consumer that can be used with the current Google TV technology and other Internet protocol presentation methods now in development,” he said.
Actually Mr. Hirsch was wrong. The rumor is another major adult studio has been developing something for Google TV for awhile now although at this time the rumored studio hasn’t released any details.
As far as Vivid’s Google TV channel goes. Apparently news of this has gone viral and every tech blog in the world seems to have picked up the story.
