  Ofcom on Another Planet

From The Guardian Charlie Brooker reviewing Dr Who spoof, Dr Screw on the Adult Channel

It's traditional for highbrow critics to feign ennui in the face of pornography. Well I ain't highbrow: I be dumb. As such, I don't mind admitting I didn't find Dr Screw boring. No. I found it morbidly fascinating.

What got me was this: the pornstar cast are clearly having genuine sex - yet thanks to our hopeless censorship laws both they and the programme's editors are forced to perform a bizarre game of muckypup peek-a-boo as they do so.

The end result is a nonsensical compromise. It's OK to see an erect penis, apparently, but you can't see it penetrating anything... except sometimes you sort of can. Cunnilingus is shown in fairly explicit detail, while blowjobs are hidden behind cupped hands or strategically-posed thighs... except sometimes they're sort of not. It's like an orgy that can't decide how rude it wants to be.

I'm not complaining - just baffled. These regulations seem inherently pointless, like the American public drinking law that leads winos to swig cans of beer from within brown paper bags. At the end of the day, they're still winos, still in public, still drinking beer. So what's the point?

Protection, presumably. Yet since the show is broadcast on a restricted-access post-watershed channel requiring PIN code entry (and a payment) to view, then who, precisely, are we protecting? The mugs prepared to pay to watch it? That's so circular it makes my head spin.

Hardcore smut has been legally available in Britain since the introduction of the R18 certificate six years ago. More recently, Michael Winterbottom's 9 Songs (which features more real sex than most marriages) was broadcast uncut on Sky Box Office (another PIN-restricted service). The other week, a leering C4 documentary on notorious bestial porn flick Animal Farm included a close-up of a man's face while he had sex with a chicken. Yet dedicated adult channels aren't allowed to show explicit consensual sex. Why?

Because porn's embarrassing and tawdry and we don't want that muck on our airwaves? Then ban it outright and have done with it. This present fudge just makes Ofcom look like bigger idiots than the pornographers themselves. And that's saying something.

  Harder than TelevisionX

From moyo on The Melon Farmers' Forum

With regards to Playboy/Adult channel/Spice etc. So much harder now than they used to be. They are much much harder than TelevisionX but still endless repeats and of course not hardcore. Still I appreciate the fact they are not at all scared of showing erections and male genital contact. The woman are much better looking too. They still play the same game of showing the same episode on different nights with different censorship levels. Their editors must be busy.

  Adult Channel Kneel Down for a Verbal Bashing

From Heathray on the bgafd forum 13.11.05

A whole weekend of Neil Down and his equally camp sidekick, suck mycock. How have they the nerve to show a full weekend of this puerile, tame as fuck, rubbish?

From Nachovx on the bgafd forum 13.11.05

Maybe it's because you give them the money to allow them to. Channels like that would be ok if they were free-to-air, but to charge money is a joke.

From Deuce Bigalo on the bgafd forum 15.11.05

The one gripe I've seen repeated by so many first time subscribers is: Wheres the harder content that was promised in the intro?

Great way to get guys/girls to subscribe but once burned their not likely to re-subscribe are they?

From spammy 28.3.05

Some quite good shows but too far and few between to merit subscription. some screenings are near the knuckle and obviously pushing boundaries but it is only a glimpse here and a squint there. Over the past few weeks, the repeats of old material has reached an all time high. The Ugliest girl I have ever seen on British Television appeared in Legs Wide Open two weeks ago. Anyone who saw it would agree.

Well established hardcore channel. Previously named Private Spice, and before that, Spice Platinum.

  News January 2014: Renamed

Private Spice has been renamed Brazzers TV Europe. It is operated by Playboy TV, part of the Manwin empire

  Review from satellites.co.uk, Jan 2009: Beautiful Scenery

Having had the Private Spice card for a couple of months, I have to say that the boat is still out. For me, the card does not compare favourably with the Inxworld card.

On one hand, Spice does seem to have the best picture quality, but not that far ahead of Dorcel TV.

The variety of material is good, covering the mainstream to the fetish. But when pitted against the 5 channel Inxworld card, Spice's variety starts to look less varied - sooner or later that same type of material will crop up on the Inxworld channels.

Again, given it's european background, Spice features a lot of euro-style porn, which for me is a bit of a put off. Lots of beautiful scenery, samey looking euro-girls and almost autocue acting don't really float my boat.

  News June 2006:

Spice Platinum has lost it's battle with French law and has now stopped broadcasting 24 hours per day. Shows in the UK start at 11pm til 5am. The TP has also changed to 19011V encryption type TPSAES keys updated every 20 minutes. Unless you can get Auto Update or Card Sharing.

It would seem that the time restrictions may only apply to the French TPS feed for this channel

  Review from The Melon Farmers' Forum, May 2006: Spiced Up

From Caledoniaguy

I notice that Private Spice have started broadcasting a safe sex message before each programme – I wonder what brought this on?

  From Malcom

Private spice under some sort of new management have made a number of changes as well as the condom advert. They now broadcast three 8 hour shifts as opposed to the original four 6 hour shifts.

At last they have replaced the new (Private Spice) logo with the same but smaller and transparent...Thank goodness..... I miss the fact they no longer announce if a program is a "premier" or not and they no longer state episode numbers on their freeview listing. However the episode numbers are still available on the web site schedule...

  From Caledoniaguy

I wish they would just show full movies instead of showing them episodically, though. The DOG logo is still too intrusive in my view, but better than it was. I will email them with some suggestions in this regard - perhaps others may wish to do the same (I would guess that the DOG change was in response to viewer feedback?)

Overall, I think that Private Spice is a very welcome improvement over Spice Platinum, which was already quite good anyway – If they could only reduce the number of repeats

Out of interest, what resolution & bitrates do other people’s receivers show on this channel – the picture quality is the best of any HC channel I have seen (although, to be fair, most of the others range from OK to dreadful!) , but it doesn’t look like full DVD quality, IMO.

I think the censors are really relaxing their rules. For anyone who watched Chav Week on Climax 3, will agree.

  From spammy 28.3.05

Nothing new on this set of channels. Start with Climax 1. The theme for the night is newcomers. so they split the night in to one hour segments under a title like "all the fresh you want" (or whatever), the next hour is "more fresh than you can handle" etc., etc. This goes on all night with a ten minute break every hour. The next day, this channel shuffles all the programmes forward an hour and puts the first hour at the end? Still with me?
Now multiply this by three and you get the whole three channel package. All the programmes are repeats of stuff previously shown on the Adult channel. They have become slightly stronger of late but my goodness, only slightly.

  From Spammy 1.2.05

Themed nights, one theme per channel. Theme changes weekly with themes such as Girls in Uniform, Solo girls, 3-somes etc. Each channel shows programmes from the PBTV channels all seen before and rotates them forward an hour each night. All of them are censored to death. Not worth a light.

  News February 2013: Viewing Card

Dorcel TV is available in the Elite Viewing Card Package Package for about £120 for 1 year

  Review November 2009: Thumbs Up

Dorcel TV reviewed as part of the Elite TV package

My first real acquaintance with hardcore satellite TV was with a French channel named Rendez-Vous TV. From an age when adult channels always seemed to be teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, Rendez-Vous TV lasted a fairly long time. I always has a soft spot for the presenter Zara Whites who so fluently explained to English, French and Italian speaking customers that outages were temporary and that full service would be resumed in the coming weeks.

So when I popped in a new viewing card to get reacquainted with French satellite TV, it was good to see Zara Whites starring in the first film that I sat down to watch.

The channel is Dorcel TV and it is the satellite arm of the long running French porn production company, Video Marc Dorcel (VMD). The company woodpecker logo has been the mark of good quality porn for as long as I can remember.

It may be worth mentioning that although everything about Dorcel TV is essentially French, the small print reveals that the channel is actually licensed in the Netherlands. (Coincidentally my favourite 'French' actress Zara Whites, was actually Dutch born).

Dorcel TV is based upon VMD's extensive stock of good quality hardcore. The actresses are generally well known and production qualities are high. Typically the films are set in a rich man's world. French mansions and chateaus provide the setting for many a VMD film.

The Dorcel TV schedules also include a fair number of magazine style programmes, again concentrating on the glamourous side of life. Perhaps Jet Sex is the most obvious example. There are also porn star bios and 'Making Of' programmes.

The French adult industry seems a little more enthusiastic than most. The industry maintains an almost Hollywood style publicity machine with star appearances, an industry magazine, Hot, and the publication of top selling DVD charts. Possibly the hype contributes to anticipation of new titles and generates a little more interest in following the latest starlets. This enthusiasm tends to just add a little something and elevates French movies to being amongst the best in Europe.

It is also good that VMD haven't followed the American lead in featuring overly contorted grimacing, as if slutty expressions makes for good porn. VMD use attractive actresses and more naturalistic acting. Certainly works better for this particular reviewer.

Technically, Dorcel TV seems to broadcast with sufficient bandwidth to avoid distractions due to excess compression. So given the good quality of the original, the broadcast quality is also good. English language versions of the films are generally used.

The channel broadcasts hardcore 24 hours a day. There are occasional advert breaks in films with about 3 minutes of phone sex ads at a time. All films are broadcast with complete titles and credits. Films generally start at odd times and there is no attempt to start films at regular times such as on the hour.

It is interesting that the permanent on screen age warning is 16 rather than the 18 Brits may expect. At first this almost seemed a little off putting in that it may indicate something less than full hardcore. But do not worry, the channel features real hardcore and goes a little beyond what the British Board of Film Classifiers would prefer you not to see, even at R18. The British film censor routinely cuts some of the rough sex elements that Dorcel TV broadcasts.

The channel has a good website at www.dorcel.tv which includes up to date programming details. There is also an option to watch Dorcel TV via the internet with good value options for a range of subscription periods.

All in all, a very good channel which provides remarkable value considering that it is included in some low cost satellite packages. Possibly the glamourous settings are a bit over used and therefore the channel probably works better as part of a package. This then provides the variety that Dorcel TV lacks as a standalone channel.


Dorcel TV surely outclasses and is outlasting my old Rendez-Vous TV. But I must admit to a few fond nostalgic memories of Rendez-Vous. I wonder if Laetitia and her wonderful cast of amateur nurses are still going strong in France?

  News October 2009: New Package

Sex on TV  has merged with the In X World package.

Sex on Tv has merged with Inxworld. The new package consists of Redlight Premium, Free-X1, Free-X-2, X-Dream TV, French Lover TV & Dorcel TV. Cards that cover this package are being branded as Elite Fusion 6 Viewing Cards.

  Review from Satellites.co.uk, Oct 2008: 9/10

Short commercial breaks between films. Some English soundtracks.

Heterosexual and lesbian. I would say similar to Blue Movie, with a slight overtone of 'classyness' but only slight.

Picture quality is the best of the channels I can see, so I give it 9/10. Picture quality ok, 7/10.

  From Satellites.co.uk Thumbs Up to Dorcel TV

After a week since viewing since the card arrived I give it a big thumbs up.

Firstly it is not 4hrs its actually 24/7 this Dorcel TV. It carries audio of its films in 3 selectable audio transmissions for you to choose. English, French and German.

All films coming on can be seen in the EPG as you know some channels do not show a EPG listing.

This card is a bargain at £60. Don't expect too much from the other channels which come with the card the INXWORLD channels. They are tacky and cheap. This is card is

  From Dreamlife on The Melon Farmers' Forum Finest French

I have just got myself a 4 channel Dorcel TV card. The picture on Dorcel TV is excellent and worth the subscription on it's own. The French girls are stunning. Then you got 3 other channels to, free-xtv, free-xtv2 and x-dream. For 59 pounds a year for 4 hardcore channels this is well worth the money.

  Review November 2009: Well Selected

Free-X TV 1 &2 reviewed as part of the Elite TV package

The 2 Free-X TV channels generally offer good quality material selected from the masses of low cost video.  Mainly features a mix of US and Italian hardcore.

It was good to see great performers from porn's Golden Age on Free-X TV 1. It is fascinating to see how fashions have changed. The Golden Age starlets were allowed a little more time to establish their screen presence. The sex scenes were a little more naturalistic, as were the unenhanced and untrimmed stars. It is great to see the old stuff again, but it also good to be able to hop channels to something more modern.

Technically, the channels were broadcast with sufficient bandwidth to avoid distractions due to excess compression. Maybe this is something that viewers may assume, but some of the competing packages broadcast at much worse bit-rates.

The channels broadcast hardcore 24 hours a day. There are adverts but these are not excessive. Films generally start at odd times and there is no attempt to start films at regular times such as on the hour.

  News October 2009: New Package

Sex on TV  has merged with the In X World package.

Sex on Tv has merged with Inxworld. The new package consists of Redlight Premium, Free-X1, Free-X-2, X-Dream TV, French Lover TV & Dorcel TV. Cards that cover this package are being branded as Elite Fusion 6 Viewing Cards.

  Review from Satellites.co.uk, Oct 2008: Rough

Short commercial breaks between films.

Heterosexual, occasional lesbian. Mainly English soundtracks and from the USA.

All 4 channels largely the same, featuring mild to medium rough sex. Vaginal, anal (lots of), oral, cum. The women are very much treated like pieces of meat. Slapping, hair pulling, messy vigorous blow jobs and spitting all common. Occasional fetish including fisting, food and piss but very rarely.

Picture quality not great but watchable, 5-6/10.

  Review: Value TV

Good value for money. Basically cheap material but competently selected with enthusiastic and pretty actresses. Single sets, a little amateurish with small aspirations though.

Mix of US & European material from a variety of genres

I originally bought a Blue Ice CAM which promised a lifetime subscription. It stopped decoding Free-X TV six months later!

  Review November 2009: Eclectic

French Lover TV reviewed as part of the Elite TV package

French Lover TV offers quite a mixture with educational programmes thrown into the eclectic mix of amateur, transsexual and more extreme material.

Technically the channel is broadcast with sufficient bandwidth to avoid distractions due to excess compression. Maybe this is something that viewers may assume, but some of the competing packages broadcast at much worse bit-rates.

The Elite package surely outclasses my old Rendez-Vous TV. But I must admit to a few fond nostalgic memories of Rendez-Vous. Particularly so when I caught another Rendez-Vous favourite, Laetitia and her wonderful cast of amateur nurses. They are still going strong on French Lover TV.

  Harder than TelevisionX

From moyo on The Melon Farmers' Forum

With regards to Playboy/Adult channel/Spice etc. So much harder now than they used to be. They are much much harder than TelevisionX but still endless repeats and of course not hardcore. Still I appreciate the fact they are not at all scared of showing erections and male genital contact. The woman are much better looking too. They still play the same game of showing the same episode on different nights with different censorship levels. Their editors must be busy.

From BOD on The Melon Farmers' Forum 19.12.05

Saw several episodes of a programme called the Mating Game starring Sammi J on Playboy TV last night. Showed longshots of actual penetration and blowjob action. It seems they are testing the water, and like the viewers, are peeved with the outdated and inconsistent legislation we have in this country.

From spammy 28.3.05

There are a couple of good shows currently running. The Mating Game, Sandy, and the new Confessions of a Make-Up Artist. These shows give a glimpse of what could be done. but only a glimpse. Very nice girls and chaps and very well produced material etc but...the cutting is far too severe for me still.

the rest of the material on this channel is pure dirge. Lots of 'faux' chat shows, Americanised rubbish and truly softcore nonsense too tiresome to watch. Also, the scheduling is tediously repetitive. Save your money.

From Spammy 1.2.05

Repeat Hell. Plenty of non-erotic shows and all badly cut to death

  From moyo on The Melon Farmers' Forum: Same Old Fear of Erections

Regarding TelevisionX/Redhot. It has not changed in well over 18 months. Same old programs. Same old censorship levels. Same fear of erections. Absolute rubbish. Yes there are a couple (of the same old) programs that are harder than the rest but it is a small minority. Why are all the guys and girls so fat,old and ugly? I think they are the laziest television channel on air. The program descriptions never match the actual content. They may say hot lesbians enjoy anal - when in fact there are no lesbians and no anal. Or "barely legal 18" when the woman are in their forties. The other thing they don't seem to do is ever edit their programs either. Whether it is the "harder" cut or the super softcore cut - it will be the same night after night, month after month, year after year. The episodes remain the same. Do they have editors

  Softly Softly Towards Hardcore

From payback 20-Feb 2006:

The redhot channels contain quite a lot of clearly visible and prolonged penetration, but very little oral. whilst it is nearly always shakey cameras and not in close up, they certainly go way beyond what BBFC would class as 18.

  What the 'PIN Hell is going in with these channels?

From MattyUK 13-Dec 2005

Xplicit are doing the same as the Red Hot channels, pin required whenever you return to the channel....

  Fingers 6.7.05:

But interestingly, their off-shoot Pay-Per-View on Freeview channel "RedHot" has been very strong (by recent adult channel standards), for example the night before last showed prolonged 7-8 second shots of penetration (albeit in the corner of the screen) together with glimpses of Oral sex and a lot of short sequences of dildo penetration.

This occurred in a several different programmes so cannot be easily attributed to bad editing.

Redlight Premium was reviewed as part of the Elite TV package.

Redlight Premium mainly features a mix of US and Italian hardcore. The programming will be familiar to viewers of Euro hardcore satellite but the programme buyers have selected well, and the channel is well worth watching.

Technically, all the Elite TV channels were broadcast with sufficient bandwidth to avoid distractions due to excess compression. Maybe this is something that viewers may assume, but some of the competing packages broadcast at much worse bit-rates.

The channels broadcast hardcore 24 hours a day. There are adverts but these are not excessive. Films generally start at odd times and there is no attempt to start films at regular times such as on the hour.

All in all, a very good package covering a wide range of programming which provides remarkable value considering the low cost subscription.

      News August 2013: A Pain in the Neck...40 years on, and we still can't see the proper version of Deep Throat
    deep throatTo mark the the release of Lovelace, the biopic of its star Linda Lovelace, an horrendously cut, softcore version, of Deep Throat will be shown on Television X, available via Sky, cable and digital TV. However subscribers will be able to watch the proper version on the Television X website.

    TVX Programming director Chris Ratcliff said:

    Before you see the film about the film, see the film. Deep Throat broke many taboos and paved the way for the adult industry in terms of breaking into the mainstream. We want to celebrate this piece of work and get it out to a whole new audience.

      News from Jamie, July 2012: Less Amateur

    TVX Amateur ceased broadcasting towards the end of June 2012. That leaves just the 2 channels, TVX and TVX Brits in the Xcellence package.

      From Mysteryman on the bgafd forum: Fantasy Theft

    In April, after over 3 years of an increasing number of repeats, schedules nothing like shown on the SKY EPG and the availability of better content on the Net, I cancelled my TVX subscription by registered post with a cancellation date 6 weeks from the date of the letter.

    Lo and behold, my credit card was charged in June for June - July. I obtained a Proof of Delivery from the Royal Mail for the registered letter and sent all the details to the credit card company. A refund was arranged.

    I've just had my bill for July. There, large as life, is yet another charge from Portland Enterprises (TVX).

    On contacting the credit card company again they told me that, given the process is automated, they have to charge the card and I will have to apply for credit each month.

    As far as I'm concerned, given the subscription was cancelled and a signature received for the letter, the charge appearing on my card is THEFT. No doubt the credit card company will get sick of my calls in time and do something about the situation but, until they do or the people at Portland Enterprises stop stealing from my credit card company, I will have to spend time ringing for the credit each month, and pay the figure on the card statement as the credit cannot be deducted until the following month's statement.

    Thank you Portland Enterprises. Presumably you wish to give the adult industry a bad name.

    I STRONGLY SUGGEST anyone tempted to join TVX thinks very hard before giving them a credit card number which they will take as a licence to print money in perpetuity.

      From Raoul, Aug 2006: Why Oh Why

    Why oh why didn't I listen to the sound words offered by trusted melon farmers contributors..I stupidly subscribed to Television X thinking that surely there would be something on any 1 of the 4 channels at sometime or other. WRONG.. absolute rubbish on all 4, including some seriously awful and scary stuff on TVX2. I have not found any single programme that offers anything which might be considered more erotic than earwax... learn from my mistake and avoid at all costs.

      From bgafd forum, Aug 2006: Poor

    Have seen some TVX and it is poor.

    TVX4 - Endless US rubbish films. Could be the same film for the same-ness of it all.

    TVX3 - Freeview then a 20 minute live show followed by repeats of previous live shows.

    TVX2 - Scary! Mainly amateur videos, many featuring some seriously old and fat women (I kid you not). If the program description mentions 'over 18s' are involved then that often means over 18 stone!

    TVX1 - The only one worth watching but like them all, far too many 10 minute freeview interruptions.

    IMHO, the freeviews and website promise far more the station actually delivers. Most of the descriptions (off the 'i' button) are scandalously inaccurate and bear little relation to the program itself.

    As for hardcore, you get the occasional 'slip' and see a little more, but this is probably just a teaser to make you think it gets better. It doesn't.

    Thanks to Nick

    As well as English, German and French (all with English audio) football coverage and some fairly recent Hollywood fare the Albanian package now has a dedicated 24 hour hardcore porn channel.

    Channel X shows the classier side of porn with some tasteful output from Private and some US producers. Channel X previously showed softcore Playboy stuff throughout the day. If your lucky you may not see the same film in 24 hours. If you like Private then your in luck as they show a wide range from their massive output including stuff like Tanya Hyde.

    Around 10:45pm (UK time) until 4am each night Channel X is joined by two other channels (DigitAlb 7 and 8) showing similar stuff. Films have English audio and no subtitles on the hardcore output.

    With the bonus of mainstream films and football this is a pretty good package.

      From satellites.co.uk, Feb 2009: Quite Popular

    Seems to be quite popular. Their downside is that they are not 24/7 and they only show one or two titles a night and with many repeats.

      From Stephen 11-Mar-2005

    I have had a legitimate ABsat card which is for the bouquet of about a dozen channels on Hotbird. The package includes XXL which is on every day from 9pm to about 2 am. from 9 to 11 its softcore (French 16 rated) and from 11 there are 2 hardcore films every night. As far as I can tell, each film is repeated once in the month's schedule.
     
    The hardcore is French 18 rated which is hardcore as you and I would understand it. Sometimes the quality is excellent and sometimes poor. This depends entirely on the original material which comes from a variety of sources and countries, including American films and those Italian costume dramas with 2 dozen actors on set.
     
    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. You don't have to watch the other French programmess but I enjoy them.
