VividTV has partnered with Canadian adult broadcaster Sex-Shop Television Inc. to rebrand Sex-Shop’s Vannesa TV adult service as VividTV beginning Oct. 28, said network officials.
VividTV, which offers both an adult-themed linear channel and an on demand service in the U.S., will offer its programming – which features hard core movies and sex tape movies from Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson, Montana Fishburne and Tila Tequila -- on the Canadian service in both French and English. Overall the channel will offer more than 50% VividTV programing and the rest will come from Vanessa TV’s library of adult programming, said Vivid.
Sex-Shop Television chief executive officer Anne-Marie Losique will head the channel.
“Vanessa TV is without a peer in Canada as a provider of fine adult programming. We are delighted they are taking the lead in bringing VividTV audiences throughout the country,” said Bill Asher, co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment in a statement. “Because Anne-Marie knows the market so well, she’ll be able to package the best of Vanessa TV and VividTV.”
