Penthouse 3D, the world’s first adult 3D channel, has been launched across Europe. The company’s owners, FriendFinder Networks, believe it’s only a matter of time before 3D becomes a stable format, like HD.

As reported in January, Penthouse 3D follows the successful launch of the first linear adult HD channels Penthouse HD, Penthouse HD1 and Penthouse HD2.

“We are very excited about the launch of the Penthouse 3D channel,” says Marc Bell, CEO of FriendFinder Networks. “Our goal is always to deliver the latest technology on the world’s best platform.”

100pc full 3D native HD

Key features of the new service include 100pc full 3D native HD, 30 hours refreshment monthly and programming that includes soft-core and hard-core feeds.

Penthouse 3D will be available on a daily basis from 11pm until 5am (GMT +1) on ASTRA 3B, 23, 5° East.

Jacky Wauters, head of NOA Productions, Penthouse channels’ European distribution partner, said: “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.”
