SAN FRANCISCO — GameLink.com received six nominations for the XBIZ Awards, including Adult Site of the Year — Video on Demand and VOD Company of the Year.
The company, which pioneered online retailing in the early 1990s, also received nominations for Affiliate Program of the Year — Retail; Online Retailer of the Year — Full Range; Adult Site of the Year — Gay for its TitanMen.com membership site; and Adult Site of the Year — Studio for its premium site, AdamAndEveTV.com.
“We are very pleased and very grateful to receive these nominations from XBIZ,” said Jeff Dillon, vice president of Business Development for eLine.com, GameLink’s parent company. “It has been a tremendous year for GameLink with incredible growth and expansion of our brand and the great brands we manage.”
The 2016 XBIZ Awards will be held on Friday, Jan. 15, at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles.
The nominations for VOD represent GameLink’s continual growth in the sector thanks to strategies like offering exclusive premieres of all-new adult movies, Dillon said.
GameLink also gives customers innovative options when shopping for adult content, such as scene-only streaming via minutes packages and a joint venture with webcam partners to provide access to live adult models, he said.
“Thanks to a more responsive site and powerful new online tools to increase user engagement and access to popular premium content, TitanMen.com has been a major source of growth and expansion for us and our partners at Titan Media,” Dillon said. “Likewise, AdamAndEveTV has been a major bright spot in the way deliver content to consumers with its innovative cable TV-like platform.”
Dillon said the nominations come as GameLink solidifies its role as the leading e-tail website in the adult industry. Its leadership, he noted, continues to “steer the site through a landscape of changing delivery platforms, including the development of its cloud streaming service, which eliminates download time for consumers.”
The newest award nods follow the nominations of three members of GameLink’s management team to the 2016 XBIZ Executive Awards.
Last month, Ilan Bunimovitz, who is the owner of eLine.com, was nominated for Businessman of the Year. Dillon received a nomination for Community Figure of the Year, while eLine’s Marketing Manager, Danny Z, is up for Marketing Executive of the Year.
