WASHINGTON Dish Network customers can now access pay-per-view titles from Hustler HD and Reality Kings TV.

Dish Network spokesperson Robin Zimmerman told XBIZ that Hustler HD was officially added to its PPV offerings on Wednesday. Additionally, the company launched Reality Kings TV and Juicy into its adult programming options for PPV, she said.

LFP President Michael Klein said that programming on Hustler HD, which was launched this year on video-on-demand and PPV, consists of top adult movies shot in true HD format with no up-converted titles.

Our Hustler HD service for VOD is available to cable operators and satellite providers in three different versions, XX, XX+ and XXX, all dependent on what our affiliates desire, Klein told XBIZ. Our 24/7 Hustler HD PPV channel has over 40 different movies playing every month with new titles from top adult studios premiering every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night.

He also said Hustler is making plans to roll out Hustler HD in Europe in the near future.

Dish Network already offers standard HustlerTV on PPV for $13.99; HD titles are available at the same price.

Standard HustlerTV is available as a subscription channel as well priced at $29.99 per month, as is Reality Kings TV. A package of the two channels also is available at $39.99.

Reality Kings TV was launched in 2004 and is available through cable, satellite and hotel/motel television providers as a VOD or PPV network.

Its programming includes movies from studios such as Reality Kings Video, Bang Bros., Muffia and others.

Wow. And to think I just left Dish for Fios. I wonder if I should switch back. Or will Fios carry these most excellent and exceptional channels?

I can imagine. I've seen their Playboy TV in SD, and it doesn't look much better than YouTube.

Not sure I'd want to see some of those Hustler girls in anything more than HD-Lite...I mean..Vagina Canyon in 1080p on a 65" Plasma?

I just tried adding the Hustler HD monthly and its only available PPV. The person I talked with said if they get enough request for monthly they may add it to a monthly tier. I'm sure at a premium cost however. Right now only the SD programming is available on a monthly bases.

I'd suggest that $14 per per movie (all right, $13.99) is a bit steep for a single Hustler HD PPV on Dish. For comparison: If one has VUDU, (as does my LG BD 390 blu-ray player), adult titles are typically $8.99 for HD. Although there is a limited selection of HD titles available on VUDU (lots of SD), the quality is better than what I've seen on Dish so far. Dish's adult content is also much more expensive than rentals at videos stores that carry adult titles. And the quality of SD on Dish -- whether adult or G-rated -- is plain awful. C'mon Dish, your prices for porn are out of line -- the competition is just too stiff.

Their (non adult) PPV isn't downrezzed AFAIK.

Pun intended, I hope.

Porn from pay providers has always been way overpriced - especially for what you get. It's a major racket.

I've actually only seen Playboy Espanol - not the "all-English" version (although much of the Esp. version is in English anyway), and trust me - it's way worse-looking than the average, national, English-language, G-rated SD channel (on Dish). It is possible that it could be a bit better in English, though, because they do tend to bit-starve the ethnic channels even more than the others.

Have no idea what Hustler SD could look like, though. As far as the PPV, I've never actually ordered any of that.
