(BOULDER, CO) -- New Frontier Media, Inc. (Nasdaq: NOOF - news), a leader in the electronic distribution of adult entertainment, announced that it has created an ``umbrella'' brand name for its six 24-hour subscription and pay television networks.
The Erotic Networks is the new umbrella brand for New Frontier Media's subscription and pay television subsidiary which includes Pleasure(TM), TeN(TM), ETC (Erotic Television Clips)(TM), Extasy(TM), True Blue(TM) and Gonzo X(TM) adult network programming services. The division was formerly referred to as Colorado Satellite Broadcasting, Inc., which will remain the division's legal name. The name change is part of a new national campaign targeted to cable television operators and DBS (direct broadcast satellite) providers (and their subscribers) and is intended to formally introduce New Frontier Media's adult entertainment television networks under one umbrella name.
``The Erotic Networks says it all -- it succinctly encapsulates the image we're looking for,'' stated Ken Boenish, President of The Erotic Networks. ``We've built a state-of-the-art facility in which to broadcast our six adult channels. We offer the widest variety of editing standards and continue to deliver the highest buy rates in the category. We've grown our cable and DBS subscriber base from zero, two years ago, to over 22 million addressable subscribers, now it's time for us to take our company, The Erotic Networks, to the next level,'' Boenish said.
Along with a new corporate name, The Erotic Networks announced it was finalizing a mainstream branding campaign that will help its network affiliates cast a wider net of awareness over their consumer base. The company's goal is to help its affiliates increase the revenue currently being generated from the already lucrative adult entertainment category. ``We're dedicated to equipping our affiliates with the most effective marketing tools in the industry in order to help them improve upon our already extraordinary buy rates,'' added Boenish.
