If you're looking for a discount alternative for your porn viewing options, VideoBox.com
is certainly a great contender for your business in the Video On Demand realm. There's
a growing number of VOD sites out there, and all are not created equal, although
most work on the same basic principle: you buy minutes and pay for what you want
to see. VideoBox is a bit different: they offer several plans for a flat monthly
rate for unlimited downloads rather than a "pay by the minute" approach. Here are
some stats on what's inside VideoBox's bag of goodies:
Currently they have over 6,500 DVD's covering a range of soft and hardcore porn in
their library. Updates: 5 DVD's added every day - that's 35 DVD's per week!
Video quality: 3 video sizes: Medium (320x240), Hi (480x352) and DVD Resolution (640x480).
Videos are DRM-free - keep them forever - available in Windows H.264 and Flash formats.
Creating an account is super easy and you can pay by credit card or online check.
Once your account is created, you're now ready to browse their library and download
to your heart's content. Browse by category which includes everything from the usual
porn niches such as Amateur, Anal, Big Boobs, BDSM and Gonzo, all the way to Computer-Generated,
Classic, Femdom and much more. You'll see features from all the popular studios,
including Red Light District, Elegant Angel, Smash Pictures, Lethal Hardcore, with
studios conveniently listed including the number of videos they carry at Videobox
and their popularity rating. Easy navigation allows you to browse around and find
new DVD's, Top Scenes, Stars (listed by alphabetical order with number of scenes
and rating), and Series, so whatever you're looking for, it's easily accessible.
You can also read the informative viewer reviews of scenes and DVD's to decide if
it's something you want to download - always a great feature when plowing through
The main downside to this otherwise great VOD outlet is that they don't have a huge
library as compared to some VOD sites, but having unlimited access to over 6,000
DVD's at your fingertips ain't too shabby. 3 months here will only set you back $28.76
on the basic plan, and that's cheaper than most paysites. I'm confident you'll be
able to find plenty of good stuff that turns you on among the 6,000 vids covering
a fairly wide array of porn niches. And if you don't believe me, check out the "buzz"
from a dozen other reviewers as shown at the VideoBox site which attest to the popularity
and high marks this VOD outlet routinely receives. One of the best features is the
ability to pick a scene from an individual DVD and create your own start and stop
point. Also, there's enough "twisted" content here to keep even non-mainstream porno
A very detailed and helpful Support page will answer most any question you have,
with plenty of troubleshooting advice, billing and subscription information and much
more. It's pretty self-explanatory once you get in here and start using the service.
Will you be able to find every title, star, category or niche under the sun here?
No. But as always, you get what you pay for, and if you're on a budget and want a
popular and convenient place to throw down some bucks, you could do worse than hanging
out at VideoBox. Many people in the adult industry feel that VOD is not only the
wave of the future , it's the PRESENT and it's here to stay, in one form or another,
so now's the time to try out VideoBox - the Netflix of porn!
So, what plans are available? Unlike most VOD setups in which you buy a package of
minutes, VideoBox offers several flat monthly rate plans that allows UNLIMITED download
of thousands of videos. Sweet!
12 months - $6.66 /month - billed in one installment of $79.96
3 months - $9.59/month - billed in one installment of $28.76
1 month - $15.96/month - billed in one installment of $15.96
WOW, for under $10 a month you have access to their full 6,500 DVD library, with
5 new DVD's added every day from over 200 adult studios, unlimited flash streaming,
no DRM, and high quality Windows WMV.
This plan includes everything that the Basic Plan does, plus premium features:
DVD resolution downloads

Preferential Customer Service
