VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR OCTOBER 10, 2014
VIVID TOLAUNCH VIVIDTV EUROPE NOVEMBER 1ST – Vivid will launch VividTV Europe on November 1st. The new 24/7 channel will deliver Vivid programming combined with the highest quality European content available. The new channel will compliment Vivid’s existing broad European Video On-Demand distribution. VividTV Europe will be led by Tony Tony Cochi, Executive Vice President Worldwide Distribution of VividTV, and Stephen E. Walter, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Canada and Europe. Bill Asher, co-chairman of Vivid Entertainment, said distribution deals with several major European operators will be announced shortly. VividTV launched its 24/7 linear channel in 2013 and it quickly became the top performing adult service in over 70 million homes across North and South America. Vivid extended its US service to Europe in April of this year. Bill said in a press release: “In order for any channel to truly be successful it must have a local flavor and appeal to the constituency of the territory. VividTV Europe is designed specifically for the European market. The channel will deliver the most popular content in Europe, both through acquisitions as well as programming from Vivid Entertainment, owner of the largest single adult studio archive,” said Mr. Asher. He noted that the new European service comes on the heels of last week’s announcement of a Vivid partnership with VanessaTV in Canada to create a truly local channel. VividTV Canada launches October 28. Announcement of the new channel made headlines in both broadcast and general media in Europe, with stories in the press from Germany to Spain, Greece and other countries across the continent.
AVN HIGH ON MIMI & NIKKO – A new review was posted last week on AVN of Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta. Reviewer Dirty Bob gave the movie high marks.: “The Vivid sex tapes continue,” he wrote, “this time with a black couple from Atlanta well known for their VH1 series Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. This is not a hidden tape; rather, judging by the actions, camera angles, lighting and the rest, they obviously planned this out—undoubtedly for the publicity but also, quite evident from the way they hit it off in the sack and elsewhere, there is something there between Mimi and Nikko. There is no hesitation. Mimi’s mouth takes to Nikko's cock with a familiarity that hints of off-camera play. Nikko’s fingers flirt with her ass in teasing ways that suggest rather than promise anal action. And Mimi looks great. This is one couple who don’t need to keep wailing to the high heavens to make it clear that they are enjoying every thrust and slurp. They go right into a trio of segments that culminate in what could arguably be the most fun, and the sexiest, of their pelvic interludes: the shower. Well done.”

The series begins: “This week we have a special treat. I sent a simple questionnaire to the lovely and beautiful women of Vivid Radio! You remember Vivid, right? The adult film company that makes the hottest films and breaks the hottest stars; that made Kim Kardashian and celebrity sex tapes a cultural phenomenon. Vivid has turned its focus to radio, with its trademark brand of energy, enthusiasm, excitement and innovation. The ladies cover the entire world of adult, with girls that’ll blow you away and talk that’ll blow your mind. I can speak from experience. I’ve appeared on several of their shows and it was wild. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing their answers with you. WARNING! These answers are NOT for the faint of heart.” In his first question to Joanna, Gustafson asks her what the first thing she would do if she were president of the U.S. Her reply: “I would make it a law to pay for your porn.” She also reveals two secrets about herself: “I’m afraid of the dark. I can also speak Hebrew fluently. Most people don’t know either of those things.” He asked Tera the funniest thing that has happened to her on a porn set. Her answer: “I was chased out of a home location by a knife wielding wife who’s husband didn’t tell her he was renting their house as a porn shoot location. She didn’t catch me!”
