Celebrity guest hosts

Many Adult Stars have themselves introduced, promoted and been hosts during programming. As well as these well known adult stars, celebrities have also taken part in helping to promote and host the channe l at various times. Celebrities such as Jordan, Abi Titmuss, Michelle Bass and Jodie Marsh have provided links for Television X, with the latter actually having her own show, although not performing within it.

Programming

Television X present new programmes every night and provide a wider range of material than most adult channels. Using the Best UK Adult Producers and Directors, Television X provides the Ultimate in Adult Content for the British Audience.


Occasionally Television X has theme nights: mainly marathons of certain shows or of a particular style - for example, Swingers Night or Freaky Sex Night. It also sometimes runs competitions, which allow the winner to make their own Television X programme or star with one of their presenters. Swingers is a film released in 1996 about the lives of single, unemployed actors living in Los Angeles, California. ... Look up kink in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Censorship

Television X advertises itself as showing all that it can show, but due to UK television censorship, the amount that can be shown is less than that of hardcore pornography. Whilst full nudity can be shown, as can sexual intercourse, the limit to what the viewer can actually see means that Television X cannot show:- Jenna Jameson with Savanna Samson in a classic hardcore porn movie, The New Devil In Miss Jones (2005) Hardcore pornography is a form of pornography that features explicit sexual acts. ... It has been suggested that Duration of sexual intercourse be merged into this article or section. ...

  • Direct eyeline of penetration. This includes any part of the body being penetrated and by anything.
  • Erections
  • Direct tongue to genital contact. In the case of fellatio the view is normally blocked by an arm, a leg, or the act is filmed from behind. In the case of cunnilingus, a 'top down' view can be used, but a direct view of the tongue touching the vagina is never shown.
  • Ejaculation on to the face. Ejactulation on to other parts of the body is acceptable, but ejaculation onto the face is never shown 'during', only 'after'.

As a result of these restrictions, programming tends to be reliant on drawn out situations, restrictive camera angles and the actors / actress constantly describing the current activity to compensate for the viewer not actually being allowed to see it.


Future on Top Up TV

Since July 2006, Television X has been broadcasting pay-per-night via the Xtraview Encryption System. This is expected because Top Up TV will be ceasing to broadcast most of its general streamed channels (and the general encryption system used to protect them, see Top Up TV), therefore a viewing card is no longer required to view the channel. Early elections in November are announced in the Netherlands. ... Xtraview logo Xtraview is a trademark of Top Up TV. The Xtraview Video Encryption System refers to the patented encryption system used on the the now-defunct Xtraview channel and a number of other Top Up TV services including Setanta Sports, Television X and Red Hot TV. Unlike the other...

Free membership

In recent months several online services have sprung up offering free membership codes for users. Many of them, however, simply offer free release codes for nightly viewings. The services are relatively easy to use but they operate in a legal grey area[1].


Additional incentives

The channel also offers Television X Web TV to all subscribers of the channel. This allows viewers to watch video streaming of their favourite shows 24 hours a day via their computer on www.televisionx.co.uk.


Other names
