BRIGHTON, U.K. — European IPTV provider (GDB) Global Digital Broadcast has announced the Scandinavian Adult channel, to be available on the GDB IPTV network.

Content will be supplied by producer Lizeth Strange’s Belais Production, which produces and distributes adult video from the Scandinavian territories. Belais is based in Denmark and has been in production since 2005.

Strange is working with two major Scandinavian adult companies, Maxs Films and Swedish-based Bestseller, to broadcast new releases, archival footage, and content from several independent adult filmmakers. Much of the content is largely unavailable outside of Europe.

”The idea is to get Scandinavian porn out to a larger audience and I believe that IPTV is not only the best way to do this, but that it is also the future of broadcast,” Strange said.

”With Belais I strived to create a new way of thinking, in that I make movies for couples, from a female point of view,” Strange added. ”This does not mean the films will be soft and are, in fact, far from it, but as a female we see things in different ways and my films are intended to open men’s eyes to this. Scandinavian Adult [Channel] is both a way of showing my own work and that of others in my territory.”

The announcement comes on the heels of GDB launching U.K.-based adult channel Wrist Action TV earlier in the week.

Wrist Action is headed up by two well-known U.K. adult personalities: One-Eyed Jack Productions director/producer Terry Stephens and performer Marino, aka Super Dick of “U.K. Road Trip” series fame.

Founded in 2005, GDB provides IPTV services via broadband to Northern Europe (Sur Canal) and to mid-west America (SunCasTV), with plans for expansion into Sweden and Scandinavia. GDB also aggregates Russian content for MaksTV and Spanish-speaking, Latin programming for U.S.-based Via America.

Viewers can access content on the GDB network through their PC and also through the company’s own set-top box hardware.

Industry analyst company Canalys research projects that there will be 39.6 million worldwide IPTV subscribers by the end of 2010, which would mark a tenfold increase from fewer than 4 million in 2006.

Representatives from GDB will be available for meetings in Las Vegas, Jan. 9-12. To arrange a meeting, contact Jim Deans at +44 7774 266244 or email jim@gdbtv.com
