SUMMARY: Canada's largest cable TV company began offering the Maleflixxx Television channel this week, advertised as the world's first digital cable channel dedicated to gay porn.


Canada's largest cable television company began offering the Maleflixxx Television channel to its subscribers this week, advertised as the world's first digital cable channel dedicated exclusively to hardcore gay adult programming.

Maleflixxx Television is available by subscription on Rogers Cable, which reaches approximately 2.25 million people in eastern Canada, including Toronto, Canada's largest city.

The channel offers all-male hardcore movies from gay filmmakers such as Falcon Studios, with each film starting on the hour or half hour. The current monthly subscription is $19.95 (Canadian) per month.

Presenting close to 100 full-length movies per month from a variety of genres including muscle, twink, leather and fetish, the operators of Maleflixxx Television say they plan to air at least one new feature film every day.

"We're very proud of it," said Eric Johnson, president of Sureflix Digital Distribution, the parent company of Maleflixxx Television. "Gay men are sexually active, liberated men and they enjoy good quality content. We firmly believe people should have as much choice as possible and should be able to watch whatever they want and however they want to watch it."

Johnson told the PlanetOut Network that once word gets out about Maleflixxx Television, he expects it to expand to other cable and satellite systems across Canada, and eventually into the United States and Europe. He said talks are already underway with cable and satellite companies in other countries.

"We're confident our high-quality content and knowledge of programming will draw in a rather substantial subscriber base at Rogers to begin with, and after that we expect the other cable and satellite companies to follow their example and pick up our channel," he said.

Johnson said he is not concerned about offending anyone who is opposed to the graphic nature of the programming.

"This is a subscriber-based channel. You have to order it in order to be able to watch it," he said, noting that Canadian cable companies have shown gay adult content before, without any "major complaints."

Sureflix Digital Distribution is a gay-owned, privately held company based in Toronto. In addition to Maleflixxx Television, Sureflix is also the parent company of www.maleflixxx.tv, an online distributor of gay hardcore video.
