AEBN Inks Distro Deal for Treasure Island Catalog

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Video-on-demand distributor has nabbed exclusive streaming rights to the Treasure Island Media catalog.

The San Francisco-based studio was founded by Paul Morris in 1998 and "specializes in documentary-style gay bareback videos," AEBN said. "Treasure Island has become synonymous with some of the most provocative filmmaking in the gay porn world."

The newly inked online distribution pact cements a relationship that stretches back to their first distro agreement in 2005.

In 2006, TIM earned Studio of the Year kudos at AEBN's VOD Awards, and TIM exclusive performer Dawson snagged Performer of the Year in 2007.

"I handled our original deal with TIM myself. I was surprised by how they instantly shined on our network," said AEBN's Chris Baker. "In the years since, they have continued to be one of our standout studio partners. To have this partnership in place where we will be streaming their content exclusively is amazing. I am so excited to see what the coming months bring."

"Our TIM community is important to us and we look forward to offering them our content on AEBN's network," said studio General Manager Matt Mason.

He also expressed excitement about forthcoming marketing of AEBN's RealTouch technology that will feature TIM content. The two companies will tout their distro pact by debuting several new titles on the network this month.

Recent TIM blue movies include "Pounded" starring Aaron Lamb and helmed on location in London by Morris protégé Liam Cole; and aggressive, all-oral "Skull Fuck" with more than 20 featured players including Damon Dogg and Dan Fisk.
