Plaid Bag Media to Represent AVN in International Licensing

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—AVN is a brand that's been more than three decades in the making. Known worldwide for its trade and consumer products, AVN is entering its 31st year in the business of pleasure by revamping its presence in the international broadcast market. AVN Media Network announced today that a deal has been inked with Plaid Bag Media, a trusted source of content, for international licensing of AVN-branded content.

"Peter Reynolds helms Plaid Bag Media and brings over 25 years of entertainment industry experience to the table," AVN CEO Theo Sapoutzis said. "He's held the position of vice president of sales and marketing at some of the top companies in the industry. Since AVN just celebrated its 30th anniversary, we feel this is a perfect fit. I couldn't be more excited about Plaid Bag representing the AVN brand in the global broadcast market."

Plaid Bag Media specializes in mainstream and mature content for international licensing. The company has represented other respected brands within the adult space, including Adam & Eve.

"AVN has been the trusted adult industry news source for 30 years and Plaid Bag is looking forward to joining forces with AVN to represent their branded content, including the 2013 Awards Show for all delivery platforms,” said Reynolds, the company's CEO and founder.

Plaid Bag Media licenses film and television content from every genre and for every platform: broadcast, hotel video-on-demand, mobile and internet VOD.

AVN's relationship with Plaid Bag will begin with content placement of the 30th anniversary AVN Awards Show. This milestone event was recorded in January for later broadcast and features adult superstars Jesse Jane and Asa Akira hosting along with sexy comedian April Macie and a musical performance from hip-hop sensation Tyga.

Referred to as the Oscars of Porn, the AVN Awards show is a must-see event featuring hundreds of the hottest stars in adult entertainment.
