Hustler TV Lifts Adult Category With New HD On-Demand Service

Hustler TV's adult-oriented video-on-demand offerings will climax in May with the launch of a new high-definition service.

Beverly Hills, Calif.-based LFP Inc. will debut HustlerHD May 1, offering exclusive content from numerous HD-producing adult studios, including Digital Playground, Hustler Video and Zero Tolerance, according to LFP Inc and Hustler TV president Michael Klein. All the content on the service will be filmed in HD and will not feature up-converted standard definition titles.

Hustler TV will deliver HustlerHD in multiple edited versions, competitive splits and with a 50% refresh rate per month on all VOD titles.

"HustlerHD has the most true HD adult content from the top adult studios, with no up-converted movies," said Klein. "That will ensure the highest buy rate among the HD enthusiasts."
