That is really strange that XXX is restricted in Arkansas, considering there are two 24 hour XXX video stores on Interstate 40, and about 5 of them around Little Rock. How would satellite be restricted from sending movies, yet local businesses can sell/rent them?
Apples and oranges to a degree... I'm sure the people who lobbied to get the bans wanted to ban the stores too... but the stores have a better measure of controlling adult-only access to their product than Dish does once the satellite is in your home.
Your 12 year-old can order PPV even if you lock it out (if he figures out the password)... and then you would sue Dish for selling your underage kid adult movies... vs the adult video store that can stop kids from coming in the door in the first place.
But... at the same time... I've brought up before how a lot of US magazines are printed in Canada and then sent back to the US for distribution... and it used to be (probably still is) that the Canadian printers were located in provinces that banned the sale/possession of adult materials that the printer was in fact creating for US customers.
