Google is notorious for making deals with some pretty surprising people. As of yesterday, yet another unexpected turn was taken when Google's TV venture unveiled a new channel that is dedicated to the consumption of adult entertainment. With the help of the production company, Vivid Entertainment, you can now turn to a single app/channel on Google TV to watch porn movies (provided that you're a paid subscriber to Vivid online).
Steven Hirsch, co-founder and co-chairman of Vivid had this to say:
“[Vivid for Google TV] is a central part of our making Vivid available everywhere concept, which gives fans unified access to our content through their personal computers, mobile devices, tablets, television sets and DVD players.”What's more is that they've been working on this for over a year, trying to make (in his words) a “robust, standalone Internet-TV channel with a friendly interface for the consumer that can be used with the current Google TV technology and other Internet protocol presentation methods now in development”.
That kind of makes me respect them a little, taking the time to make something that can not only be used for porn, but for pretty much any other Internet-streaming service that dare reaches out to them for help. Go Vivid, good for you guys.
