Playboy TV UK gets into bed with KIT, as the two companies announce the launch of the first ever UK adult Pay-Per-View Video-On-Demand service on 12 December 2002.

Kingston interactive - the broadband TV arm of Kingston Communications - today announces that Playboy TV UK is to unveil it's first ever Video-On-Demand service on KIT - it's broadband interactive TV platform on 12 December 2002.

In a ground-breaking partnership Playboy TV UK, the leading worldwide adult content provider, will use KIT's unique Video-On-Demand platform to offer viewers access to high quality adult films and programmes on an 'on-demand' basis. And because the content is 'on-demand', viewers can pause, stop, fast-forward and rewind - just as they would with a normal video.

Playboy TV UK will continue to offer its broadcast channel on KIT in addition to the new Video-On-Demand service.

Through Playboy TV UK's unique experience with Video-On-Demand services in the Hotel Pay TV market and background in scheduling Pay-Per-View and Pay-Per-Night channels, they are able to provide a selection of content that is already proven to be popular with customers.

At launch, KIT viewers will be able to choose from around 50 films and programmes from the Playboy TV UK video library, renting them directly from their remote control. The new content includes the three main Playboy TV UK brands - PlayboyTV, the Adult Channel, and Spice - and, unlike normal digital TV platforms, will offer viewers previews and synopses of each film allowing them to 'try before they buy'.

Customers will not have to pay a monthly subscription and will be discretely billed at the end of the month. The service will only be available after a 10 o'clock watershed, and an adult Pin number will be required to either preview or rent the content.

KIT Managing Director Kevin Walsh said: "It's tremendously exciting to be able to say that the first ever adult Video-On-Demand deployment in the UK is on KIT. It's also tremendously exciting for our customers who can now schedule their own adult programmes."

Commenting on the deal, Alex Grahame, Affiliate Marketing Manager from Playboy TV UK said: "We now have the opportunity to deliver the very best quality and choice in adult content over an advanced broadcast network. This will drive increased buy rates and deliver returns far outstripping anything that the operator and content provider have ever seen before in traditional linear broadcasting."
