Pornhub Imitates Netflix, Relaunches Premium Streaming Service

Netflix is the king of streaming, but who is the “Netflix for Porn”? Now the answer could be Pornhub, which plans to reintroduce its premium monthly subscription service priced at $9.99. The content available under the new service will be ad-free HD quality, and might meet the needs of people who are in search of a “one-stop shop to satisfy their sexual peccadilloes,” says Engadget.

What makes Pornhub different from others?

Pornhub offers usual features such as 1080p video, high-speed servers and exclusive content that is probably hard to find elsewhere, says Engadget. Offering and intent is quite similar to Netflix, but of course, the type of content is different.

What differentiates this service from other major players is it will be available not just to the web users on desktops and laptops, but in the near future, it would also be available on their mobile phones, and can be accessed through Android and Roku apps. The company also plans on introducing virtual reality integration in 2016, but how it will work in practice is not known for now. An interesting fact is that some of the content available on Pornhub is submitted by users, and that material is even copyrighted.

Is Pornhub the “Netflix for porn”?

Until now, the company was only making revenue from ads, but now it will charge the viewers, which could make the situation a “sticky one,” believe Engadget. Pornhub’s program has already been subscribed to by plenty of studios such as Digital Playground, Brazzers and Reality Kings.

Engadget made a bit of an effort to find out what the new subscription service is all about, and took a closer look at some of the selections. It found that for each and every sexual interest, the company has made available 4-5 pages of exclusive clips. Therefore, based on user’s interest, the subscription plan of $9.99 per month could either be a good bargain or it can be a bit of turn off.

Pornhub’s Netflix-like proposition is not new. Previously companies like FyreTV has come out with similar plans to bag the title of “Netflix for porn.” Many individual studios with adult content also have monthly subscription services, offering better quality and exclusive content to users who are willing to pony up a fee every month.
