Review by Maggie

Released Aug 22, '12 , Written Aug 14, '12

Channel 1 Releasing is a collection of hardcore gay scenes that manages to encompass numerous site types at once. To begin with, the site offers VOD content, videos that are available for purchase, 7 day rental, and per minute streaming. They also offer movies and photo galleries that included to all members with their monthly subscription. And then there's the live cam facet, with live and archived shows. The site mainly offers content by Chi Larue, Doug Jeffries, & Dirk Yates and costs $30 a month plus VOD charges.

The Pros

  Hot gay collection.

Channel 1 Releasing offers quite a variety of hardcore gay action. Niches include military, bears, orgies, Europeans, Latinos, bondage, leather, and more. Some of the scenes are even exclusive to this collection. With such a fantastic mix of models and action, there's something for everyone.

  Good-sized collection with daily updates.

Channel 1 Releasing is a large site, with 51,000 photos, 2,250 camshow videos, and 2,175 VOD videos. Multiple new scenes are added to the site each and every day, so it's no wonder the collection is as big as it is.

Other Good Stuff:

  • There are a few tools for navigating the site, including lists of categories, stars, directors, new releases, and popular scenes. There's also a keyword search.
  • Included with your membership are access to Live & Raw HD sex shows, 5 free DVDs each week, 30 VOD minutes each month, one Dirk Yates Recruited scene each week, up to 25% discounts on your store purchases (including VOD minutes).
  • The site design was clean and the My Account page was easy to use.

The Cons

  Streaming-only videos.

All of the videos play in your browser in Flash. They're streaming-only with no option to download them. There are also no options for other quality settings.

  Average quality video.

I can't say I was impressed by the quality of these scenes. They look decent and the size of 640 x 480 is average, but I expected more from a site offering professional DVD content. These scenes look quite average.

  Expensive set-up.

Channel 1 Releasing's payment set-up is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it's great that you can enjoy the site as is with your membership and only pay VOD charges as needed (especially taking advantage of the 30 minutes of VOD you get included with your membership each month). On the other hand, they're really getting you on both fronts. You're paying a regular membership fee AND VOD charges! Those costs will add up fast and you could end up paying much more than you were expecting.

Minor Negatives:

  • Much of the collection is not exclusive. It's largely DVDs that are available elsewhere.
  • There are no zip downloads for the photo galleries (and the pictures are tiny).

Bottom Line

The large collection is entertaining but the high cost for average-quality streaming vids hurts.

Channel 1 Releasing is an intriguing combination of site types. Fans are sure to enjoy the large collection and all the bonuses that come with membership. The cost of enjoying these scenes is high, though, especially for streaming video, and considering that I'd really like to see higher quality content. Otherwise, this is a cool gay site combo that is worth a visit.
