(BOULDER, CO) -- New Frontier Media, Inc., a leader in the electronic distribution of adult entertainment, announced today that its Subscription and Pay TV subsidiary, The Erotic Networks, acquired the subscriber base of Emerald Media, Inc., a privately held adult entertainment distributor.
Emerald Media was formerly the Company's largest competitor, and one of the few competitors of any kind, to provide content direct to consumers utilizing the large C-band dish. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Company reported that it expects to add approximately 27,000 new paying subscribers to its existing C-band customer base. ``This is an opportunistic acquisition for us,'' explained Ken Boenish, President of The Erotic Networks. ``Our infrastructure, including our call center which provides customer service and marketing support to our existing C-band customers, can easily accommodate these new subscribers with little added cost.'' The Company reported that it expects to generate an additional $300,000 to $400,000 per month in revenue from the acquisition of these subscribers.
``The C-band market has been a highly profitable business for us during the past three years,'' Boenish said. The Erotic Networks reported that it expects its C-band revenue to remain a profitable revenue source for the Company.
