Vivid Entertainment Group on Friday said it would ship an adult movie on a Blu-ray DVD, becoming the first porn distributor to announce it would use the high-definition format developed by Sony.
Adult-content producers have reported difficulty in finding a manufacturer willing to replicate porn movies on Blu-ray disks, and have claimed that Sony is responsible, an accusation that the company denies. Sony’s replication unit refuses to handle adult content, but the parent company says other manufacturers are free to do what they want.
While declining to name the manufacturer, Los Angeles-based Vivid said it would release “Debbie Does Dallas Again” on March 28, a spokeswoman said. The movie would be available simultaneously on HD DVD, Blu-ray’s competing high-definition format.
Did anyone ever really think that porn wouldn’t be available in both formats?
