Review by Spencer

Released Sep 28, '14 , Written Sep 23, '14

Channel 1 Releasing is our site up for review today, and this is a VOD site that offers up gay and bisexual DVDs from the production company by the same name. They don't give a ton of info here on the company, but it seems like they've been around a while with the wide range of content you can find on the site. They stick to mostly hardcore action, though again, it just varies a lot. They also have a few different ways to join. $30 a month gets you unlimited streaming, while $25 a month gets you 450 minutes each month. Or, they have non-recurring packages of minutes you can buy such as 200 minutes for $20.

The Pros

  Large collection overall.

The size of the site is definitely the biggest thing they have going for them I'd say. With around 500 DVDs online, there's going to be a lot of stuff to check out. Most falls under the gay or bisexual umbrella, though they do have a small section of straight content to check out as well. Each DVD usually has several scenes on it as well of course.

Other Good Stuff:

  • They do have some basic categories setup to help you narrow things down here. With the size of the site, I'd say they could do even more for search options, but it's a nice start.

The Cons

  No downloads available.

Sadly, all of the videos here are streaming only as they don't allow any downloads of their material. I can understand their position trying to protect the content and all, but it may deter some users who are big fans of downloading everything.

  Quality isn't great.

Even the newest of content here looks behind the times in terms of the quality level offered. Some newer videos are labeled HD, but once you watch them, they're anything but high definition, so you're stuck with SD only. Add in that a lot of the content is older as well, that only adds to the low-quality feeling.

  Content seems pretty old at times.

They don't give you a ton of info on the scenes, so you're stuck guessing based on the looks of things, but a lot of the content is older here I'd say. Some of it goes back several decades. The scenes vary a lot, but definitely be prepared for some older material at times.

  Navigation could be better.

They have a lot of material here, and once you choose a category, they'll display around 20 scenes up. Once you get to the bottom of that list, it'll load more scenes for you after a minute of waiting. First, this loading time takes a little too long for my liking. It isn't as quick as Facebook or Yahoo is with their similar technology. Second, there are no page numbers or anything, so you have to sit and wait for things to load one page at a time. This could take a very long while if you're wanting to see some of the clips further down the list.

Minor Negatives:

  • While they have videos, there are no photo galleries here at all, which may disappoint some.
  • Considering that streaming video is their main source for content delivery, they don't have a very advanced player. You can jump ahead at least, and there are multiple quality levels, but you don't get any filmstrip navigation or any other extras.
  • They don't have dates on any of the content here, so it's tough to know when (or even if) new content is added. You'll have to keep a close eye out yourself to see if they're active enough for you to stick around.

Bottom Line

Not the best setup here as they need some big upgrades, but the site is large at least.

Channel 1 Releasing is stuck in the VOD ways of years past, and they have the content and site to match it I'd say. Everything here just feels a bit dated and behind the times. There are some newer scenes up, but even on those, the quality is quite poor most of the time. Much of the content otherwise is a bit older than we're used to seeing. Add in so-so navigation, and not very many navigation and viewing options, and things just never really get off the ground here for me. If you see something you like, you may consider a small package of minutes to check it out, but I don't think I'd stick around all that long here personally.
