Playboy, DirecTV Agree to Extend Distribution Relationship

NEW YORK (AP) -- Playboy Enterprises Inc. said Friday two subsidiaries agreed to continue distributing Playboy channels to DirecTV Inc. subscribers.
Under the agreement, DirecTV gets non-exclusive rights to transmit Playboy's Playboy TV, Spice Xcess and Club Jenna networks in the United States until Nov. 15, 2008, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Playboy already provides DirecTV with Playboy TV and two other channels through an existing agreement with DirecTV. Playboy said it expects transmission of the new networks to begin Nov. 16.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but Playboy said its sales will reflect its share of revenue received from DirecTV customers who purchase the right to view the network's programming, subject to DirecTV receiving certain minimum revenue amounts from networks other than Playboy TV

Good, maybe after working out agreements with Playboy and Fox News they'll have time to work on getting agreements with Tribune and some other owners of locals for HD carrriage.

I wish you could subscibe to the channel. I don't order pay-per view. Dish lets you do that to there hard core channels. I feel it's cheaper and you can watch it when you want.

You can with D*, but it costs $7500/year. Its called the Titanium package.

I wonder if the deal includes Playboy HD when the new sats go up next year?

I don't know about the other two channels mentioned, but Playboy (595) has been available for something like $15 a month for quite some time now.

Thats the only one you can subscribe to monthly I think lostman72's point was that E* subs are permitted to sub to their other hard core channels monthly.

Apparently these are not new additions rather these are channel rebrandings that D* has agreed to carry per Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spice_Network

The Spice Digital networks recently went through major changes, with several channels being re-branded and others discontinued. As of November 1, 2006 the following changes will take effect:

The Hot Network is now ClubJenna
Hot Zone is now Spice:Xcess
Spice Hot (Discontinued)
Spice Live (Discontinued)
Spice Platinum (Discontinued)

I think the PPV's are a waste as they are so overpriced you can buy a DVD for the cost of a 90 minute block.

PlayboyTV just repeats the same handful of shows over and over and over and except for the Directors Cut movies offers little if you ask me.
