Thanks for all of the great comments. We are super excited about the launch, we had some slight technical difficulties mid-day, but otherwise it went great!
We thought we would stop by and just provide a bit more information.
First thing. We realize that our content isn't for everyone, but we do know that there is quite a bit of demand for adult content delivered responsibly to Roku users. Thanks to Roku for making the platform possible.
With that said, I would like to talk a bit about the deliberate decisions made on our part.
1. Private Channel delivery.
We love this feature as it allows users interested in content out of the mainstream to add content to the Roku Digital Video Player. Users that are not interested (truly not interested) will never know that EroticVision.TV even exists. EroticVision.TV is marketed a bit differently than the previous channel releases. Our Adult Content partners will market content and the Roku to existing users and people that are expressly interested in the quality content that they provide. Of course we wanted current Roku users to know about it as well, but it will never "be in your face".
2. The inclusion of the 5 digit pin number.
There was no requirement for this feature; it was not mandated. Controlling the ability to view our content to responsible adults was something that we put a lot of thought into and is very important to us.
3. The EVTV channel icon.
We choose to use an abbreviation of EroticVision.TV [EVTV] on the channel icon as to allow our channel to exist next to other mainstream channels on the Roku home screen without screaming "PORN!". It is also a bit less of a mouthful than EroticVision.TV when spoken. We hope you like it.
Wasteland.com is the premier and oldest BDSM lifestyle destination on the web. This is our first content partner. We will be providing content from other partners over the next few months. We intend to be able to provide content from any adult provider that wishes to make their content available.
5. Installing the EroticVision.TV channel does not require a subscription to a partner site.
You can install the channel without signing up or paying for anything. Currently we have some quality previews that you can enjoy. Shortly we will have content such as adult related podcasts, previews and the like "Free!". The "My Playlist" area in the channel works similar to what you would expect. You visit a content partner (as list of which are at http://www.EroticVision.TV
) and add videos to your playlist via the partner website.
