Exactly one month ago there was some information regarding Penthouse’s 3D plans, when they launched adult 3D content online on their website and their plans to have a dedicated Adult 3D TV Channel in the second half of the year. But apparently they have revised their initial plans and will be launching the TV channel earlier, at least in Europe… PENTHOUSE 3D – the first Pan European 3D formatted adult channel will launch on March 1st, 2011, and that is tomorrow (in Europe). Penthouse 3D will be available on a daily basis from 11:00 pm until 5:00 am (GMT +1) on ASTRA 3B, 23, 5 Degrees East. Highlights of the 3D programming will include 100% Full 3D Native HD (no autoconversion from 2D videos and that is definitely good news), 30 hours refreshed monthly and programming that includes both soft core and hard core feeds. The 3D adult channel will most likely follow with a launch in other regions later this year, probably in the second half, unless of course the interest in Europe is so big that they rush things a bit in other parts of the world as well.

The Adult Industry seems to be quickly adopting stereoscopic 3D technology for their needs and more and more small and big names are starting to offer 3D content with the latest one being Penthouse. You may remember Hustler’s This Ain’t Avatar XXX 3D Parody Movie released in September last year or the June 2010 Issue of Playboy Magazine with a 3D Centerfold. What Penthouse is doing in 3D is a bit different though, they are already offering adult movies in 3D online and earlier this month they announced their plans to start a 3D TV channel with content for adults. All this means that 3D is here to stay, as you probably know that when the adult industry adopts a new standard it is here to stay…
But back on Penthouse’s 3D plans, apparently they have started shooting in 3D the last summer, so they already should have a lot of material ready to offer online and to start broadcasting it later this year in their upcoming adult TV channel. The Penthouse 3D TV channel is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2011, launching initially in more than 15 countries, probably starting where the other Penthouse HD Television channel is already available. For all other countries that will not be initially covered, there are the 3D movies available online that are already being offered by Penthouse. Now the big question is who will be the next big company from the adult industry to jump on the 3D bandwagon.
