(Boca Raton, Florida – February 13, 2012) Penthouse Digital Media Productions Inc. continues to expand its HD Channel footprint in Europe with the launch of PENTHOUSE HD on Entertain, Deutsche Telekom’s IPTV TV service in Germany reaching more than three million households. Entertain will showcase the sophisticated, high quality 100% Full Native HD programming consumers have come to expect from the world-famous Penthouse brand.
The PENTHOUSE HD channel will broadcast daily from 21:00 until 5:00 within the HD Package of Entertain. Deutsche Telekom will also make the branded channel accessible to its SD subscribers via a separate SD feed. The SD down-converted signal of PENTHOUSE HD will be made available within both the “Big TV Package” as well as the “Lounge Package.”
Launched in 2009, the PENTHOUSE family of channels (PENTHOUSE HD, PENTHOUSE HD1, PENTHOUSE HD2 and PENTHOUSE 3D) currently reaches over 300 million households globally and includes channels that were the first linear Adult HD channels available in Europe. This new carriage agreement with Deutsche Telekom is also planned to expand and include VOD/SVOD services in the Spring of 2012.
“We are very excited about adding to the existing Penthouse channel line-up,” says Marc Bell, Chief Executive Officer of FriendFinder Networks Inc. “Our goal remains to provide the viewer with the highest quality content possible on one of the premium platforms in Europe.”
Jacky Wauters, independent sales agent/CEO of NOA productions, who represents the Penthouse HD channels in Europe, says, “Sales of HD hardware including HD television and HD enabled set-top boxes have been on the rise for quite some time in Europe resulting in high consumer demand for top quality HD programming.
