FyreTV: Porn Streaming On Demand
FyreTV will be releasing a set-top box this fall that will enable DVD-quality porn to be streamed from the internet to your TV, and you don't even need a PC. The box will be free, but users will have to pay for content of course. 100 minutes of porn will set you back $9.99 per month, pretty expensive, but company founder Estefano Isaias Jr. says that the average porn consumer only watches about 4 minutes at a time. And to make it easier not to waste those precious minutes, 25, 000 movies have been tagged and sorted by scene so that you can find exactly what turns you on, so to speak, and jump to that particular act.
The box features component, composite, ethernet, optical audio, and HDMI-out ports and actually has 802.11g WiFi support. It'll be interesting to see if FyreTV succeeds where others have failed. Companies such as ITVN went bankrupt after unsuccessfully trying to bring on-demand streamed porn to the masses, so FyreTV is in tough but they seem entirely confident that this time around the business model will work.
