Zero Tolerance and Black Ice have signed exclusive distribution agreements with Hustler TV for video-on-demand and pay-per view. Under the three-year agreement, Hustler will hold exclusive broadcast rights for all new titles released through the two studios. The deal does not include rights to either company's back catalog.
Hustler's expanding broadcast library includes titles from Red Light District, Evil Angel, Hustler Video, VCA, Jules Jordan Video, Studio A, Teravision, Third Degree, Harmony Films, Defiance Films, Torrid Entertainment, Platinum X, Sex Z Pictures and Excessive Entertainment.
Hustler TV is currently seen in over 40 countries. According to a company press release, Hustler now boasts the largest distributed adult network in Europe and Canada. In 2006, the network's reach expanded to include Mexico and Brazil.
"Hustler TV continues to offer exclusive adult entertainment that substantially outperforms competing adult services," said Michael H. Klein, who heads Larry Flynt's broadcast division. "Now available in over 40 million US homes, our network dominates the PPV and VOD arena with some of the highest buy rates in the industry."
"VOD and PPV provide another avenue for us to reach our established customers, while further establishing our brand. It also affords us a great opportunity to introduce our product to customers who may not be familiar with our movies," said Zero Tolerance founder Greg Alves. "With Hustler's years of experience and name recognition, we couldn't have picked a better company to partner with."
Zero Tolerance has established itself as a consistent provider of high-quality hardcore with releases directed by Chris Streams, Mike Quasar and Mick Blue. The company is also home to contract starlet Courtney Cummz, recently voted "the Hottest Girl in Porn" by HotMovies.com. ZT has lately been targeting niche markets with new series such as Nylons and Big Loves.
Specializing in ethnic fare, Black Ice Limited has also set a high standard in its genre with titles including Phat Black Wet Asses. The label's directorial lineup includes pros Lee G., Dawayne Dane and performer Brian Pumper. Starlet Roxy Reynolds has been representing Black Ice at recent in-store events.
