Vivid Set To Launch VividTV Europe Linear Channel on Nov. 1

LOS ANGELESVivid Entertainment, one of the world’s leading adult film companies, will launch VividTV Europe on November 1. The new 24/7 channel will deliver Vivid’s popular adult content combined with some of the highest quality European content available. The new channel will compliment Vivid’s existing broad European Video On-Demand distribution. 

VividTV Europe will be led by Tony Cochi, Executive Vice-President Worldwide Distribution of VividTV, and Stephen E. Walter, Senior Vice-President of Business Development for Canada and Europe.

Bill Asher, co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment, said distribution deals with several major European operators will be announced shortly. VividTV launched its 24/7 linear channel in 2013 and it quickly became one of the top performing adult services in over 70 million homes across North and South America. Vivid extended its US service to Europe in April of this year.

 “In order for any channel to truly be successful it must have a local flavor and appeal to the constituency of the territory,” Mr. Asher said. “VividTV Europe is designed specifically for the European market. The channel will deliver the most popular content in Europe, both through acquisitions as well as programming from Vivid Entertainment, owner of the largest single adult studio archive.”

Mr. Asher noted that the new European service comes on the heels of last week’s announcement of a Vivid partnership with VanessaTV in Canada to create a truly local channel. VividTV Canada launches October 28.

European viewers will receive exclusive, never-before-seen footage from the Vivid Celeb line, which includes sexually explicit videos starring Kim Kardashian, Tila Tequila, Pamela Anderson, Kendra Wilkinson, Montana Fishburne, etc., plus pop icon superhero parodies, award winning series like Brand New Faces and 100% Real Swingers, big budget features and much, much more. Vivid has won more awards for its movies than any other company in the history of the industry.

VividTV Europe will be available on Astra 1L 19.2° East as well as via fiber.
