Interesting quote from TV Predictions:

The Maverick of HDTV
What will Mark Cuban do next?


“TelevisionWeek has learned that Mark Cuban has discussed purchasing HDTV titles from adult film directors. Don't be surprised if Cuban ultimately launches an all-adult HDTV channel. The move would be risky as well as risqué. But no one said that Mark Cuban is averse to taking chances.â€

Cuban's Tech TV interview didn't say he was against porn, or a porn channel, rather that HDTV is WAY TO DETAILED. It's counter productive.

I said it before but I will say it again, Phillip Swan seems to learn all his predictions from HERE or other sites (like mine)


Its funny to see something reported here and a few weeks later have it show up as a "Prediction" by him.


My news items I post here and to my board are from many hours of emails, phone calls and research, then after I am done with what I find to be a creditable news item I then report it.


I give him credit though he is marketing himself well though. He's doing it for a living, I am doing it because I enjoy the hobby. :D

Thanks for the time and work you put into this. As far as Adult titles in HD, there is a lot of filmed content that was made throughout the 70s and early 80s that has the ratio of 1.85:1 that is plentiful and would work good for HD. I know there are adult titles that are filmed today, however it's the older stuff that would me much more interesting to see IMHO.


Then again, it would probably not cost as much to broadcast originally produced HD adult titles as it would be to trasfer adult films to the HD format.

I've spoken to some of the adult video companies, and some of the ones who made 35mm films in the 70s and 80s are going back and doing new telecine sessions on some of their classic titles. Join the discussion on the recently revived "HD Porn II" thread.

If done right, this would be an extremely successful channel! Hey Mark Cuban, incase you're still undecided, did you notice how much folks pay for the Extasy channel on Dish?


My request for Mark, or anyone else about to start such a channel, is to have a lot of offbeat, creative, LIVE material. Also, please focus on non-augmented women.


Hope it's true! ;)
