Penthouse 3D Porn Channel Starts Today Across Europe

Adult entertainment company Penthouse has launched Europe's first 3D porn channel today, with the promise of offering 30 hours of new 3D content each month.

The channel, which will be aired from 11:00 pm until 5:00 am (GMT +1) on Astra network across Europe, will offer native 3D and high definition content to subscribers. It is still not clear which cable company will be offering the channel.

Penthouse, which already offers 3 high definition channels, said that the channel will arrive in the US during the second quarter of this year.

Jacky Wauters, the head of NOA Productions, the distributor of Penthouse, said in a statement to The Register, “Thanks to the increasing consumer acceptance of 3D, I am delighted to work with Penthouse to be able to satisfy the needs of the consumers and broadcasters alike who demand high quality, cutting edge entertainment backed by a solid and well established brand like Penthouse.”

Although there are many services that offer 3D porn, the company claims that it is the first to provide a pan-European channel.

According to PC Mag, a company called Bad Girls in 3D announced back in January 2010 that it was offering a 60-inch Mitsubishi HD TV, 3D glasses, software and a subscription for $19.95 per month.
