In celebration of the launch, VUDU is creating the Digital Playground collection special feature, where customers can find and browse all of the Digital Playground content in one place. Digital Playground offers over 40 Hd titles at launch, with plans to aggressively add new content throughout the next several weeks. Because of the rare availability of Digital Playground movies on VOD, the VUDU announcement marks an important milestone for the service, which now boasts over 1000 titles in adult and over 10,000 titles total.
''We expect adult movie fans, who look to AVN for recommendations, will be blown away by the quality and eroticism of Digital Playground’s content,'' says Paul Fishbein, President of AVN Media Network. ''Digital Playground is known for producing state-of-the-art adult movies which are highly demanded and consistently well-reviewed in our pages.''
Joone, Digital Playground’s Founder, adds, ''We want our customers to be able to access our films immediately, any time, on the format they desire. VUDU offers this, the quality we require and a great viewing experience.''
Digital Playground continually sets the Industry standard for technological innovation and offers the highest quality products. The adult leader in entertainment was the first to embrace Hd shooting and has produced only Hd movies for over 4 years. Digital Playground’s 1080p Hd library is the largest in the adult industry and is a perfect fit for VUDU’s true 1080p playback capabilities. The company also holds the distinction of having delivered number one selling titles for the past three years. With the release this fall of ''Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge'', starring the number one adult star in the world Jesse Jane®, Digital Playground is on track to break sales records yet again.
