Kinky Pie to launch digital TV channels

UK-based Kinky Pie plans to launch several new adult channels this year, and by the sound of it, not your usual fare.

World Sex News interviews Marketing Director Lee Jones as the channel gears up for launch.


  1. What is Kinky Pie?

    Lee: "Well I can tell you what it isn't - and that is your regular 'run of the mill' adult TV channel! Our focus is niche fetish products, for example (and as the name suggests) we do tend to feature more of your Kinky kind of thing - from one end of the market to the other, as well as some mainstream programming to balance things out of course. We'll also have a main channel feature (and if it does well a sister channel altogether) called 'Kinky's Femme Fatale', just for the girls - the first porn Channel of its kind in the UK (unless I'm clearly mistaken)"

  2. Where? E.g.. TV, Satellite, Cable, Internet?

    Lee: "Again, the question is where won't it be? That'll only be limited to the commerciality of each deal we strike with each independent platform operator - and they all have their own politics and agendas. We're already finalising our first channel, which should go live summer this year on a local cable network (although contract forbids me from saying any more than that!). Expect to see Kinky Pie nationwide within the course of the next 18 months to 2 years!"

  3. Who are Kinky Pie? Who's behind the company?

    Lee: "Well, we're a bunch of nuts that, since the relaxation on the 'porn' industry (and public perception of the S-word), decided we could put the world to rights! No seriously, Kinky Pie is actually a synonym for a group of kinky fanatics that just want to do what it says on the tin. Of course we're a commercial entity and commerciality will always prevail (so our accountants and lawyers tell us), but at the end of the day we can all make some money giving people what they ask for."

  4. What is the time schedule?

    Lee: "We'll, as I said, expect to see pilot channels springing up over the next several months on local networks - then we're hoping to establish alliances with the main players, one of which will almost certainly be digital satellite for mainstream penetration - excuse the very obvious pun!"

  5. What kind of content are you hoping for?

    Lee: "Kinky Pie will be mainly featuring (at least initially) Kinky films and real time / interactive clip selection and pay per view - selectable (as on the web based freeview) by genre but played back real time / near real time by selection / on demand (pay per view).

    As we go, and build up momentum towards the back end of the year, you'll see a wider scope of programming (including a heavier reliance on feature editorial / porn start interviews) and 'Eurotrash' style off-beat shows when its mainstream."

  6. Do you have a preview tape you can send me for "review"?

    Lee: "You and how many others have asked that question! The short answer is YES, the long, legally complex and mind numbingly boring answer is NO YOU CAN'T HAVE ONE...Sorry, its under close wraps as we negotiate rights; finalise programming etc (we wouldn't want to spoil the surprise either now, would we!).

    You can, of course, mosey on over to our promotional website, kinkypie.com, where you can register your interest in the new TV channel, and grab a promotional glimpse of some of the content we'll be featuring. You got to bear in mind that the web and TV are two entirely different 'things' - you know the law is an arse, so we can't be so explicit on TV as we can (for the moment) on the web; which is why they'll be a WebTV version in high-bandwidth too once the shows on the road!

    Whilst we're on the subject of the web promotion, we've also got some fundamental changes going on this and next week so that EVERYONE will be able to watch the clips - whatever their connection, provided they have pre-registered (quick phone call to register interest is needed - where you'll even get to talk to one of our very charming channel representatives). See you there then, yeah?"
