    Ack. Well, I have had Dishnetwork a few years now and have never ordered from any of their PPV porn before. Well suffice it to say, I cannot get the only unedited channel they offer - Extasy. Due to the fact that my governor does not allow that channel in this state. I was already bummed about not being able to order my booz online, but now they have gone too far! [​IMG]
    Kidding aside - this sucks. Had a great little party going and everyone decided that we should order a few PPV porn movies. Well, that all crapped out when this big sign popped up when I tried to order - "This listing has been blacked out in your area." Well shit. I refuse to order that TEn crap with REVEEL editing...whatever the hell that is.
    Oh well, enough ranting.

    Oh and moderators, if WTF is not allowed in the subject heading please feel free to remove that portion. Was not sure after re-reading the rules on profanity since it is not actually spelling it out. Thanks!

    As I understand it the Extasy Channel has been outlawed in Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Utah, and the City of Cincinnati.
    Too bad, it looks great here in NJ [​IMG]
    The subscription price ($24.95/month) is a bit steep but it's worth it for full blown (pun intended), no holds barred, all the way, hardcore action piped into your house 24/7 without any trips to the video store and that "keep your head down" walk through the curtain into the adult section.

    Ok, risking my reputation, I've got to admit that when I first got Dish earlier this month, I had to check out the "adult" offerings. It's cheaper to go down to the video store to rent movies, but not as discreet, that's for sure. DirecTV doesn't have ANY unedited adult offerings that I'm aware of.
    But I feel your pain, brother. When I went to college in Columbus, OH, we had unedited adult channels on the local cable system.
    Then I moved to Utah, where they actually closed 3 video rental stores in my area because they were renting "R" rated movies that the locals felt violated "community standard" laws. You can't even find an adult movie in Utah that isn't "cable" version.
    Thank God I got back to the East Coast, where immoral people hold their heads high and cry, "I want my porn TV!!" [​IMG]

    Well, at least TN is not that bad. I have major problems with the local government telling me what I can and cannot do in the privacy of my own home. I mean when there are hundreds of adult bookstores where any 18 year old can go feast their eyes and buy what they want, but any law biding adult cannot order the same damn thing in the privacy of their own home.
    We did end up getting a TEN PPV movie and it was pretty uncut. Weird though...to get graphic for one second - the only thing they do not allow is photography of semen. But they allow full blown hardcore porn other than that. So strange to me.
    Oh well, once-in-a-blue-moon event I guess since I am about to move where Dish is not going to be possible. UGh! I was just getting to love my HD.

    On a side note, does anyone know if DirecTV offers Extasy or a similar channel?
