SOD Update Issue

Dear SOD Subscribers,

Due to logistical challenges with getting content from Japan to the USA, we do not have a Soft On Demand content update for this week. We are communicating with the studio and doing everything we can to track down the content as soon as possible. We are very sorry for the inconvenience; we know how important it is that new content hit the site on time, and this is doubly true in the case of a channel upgrade. Please rest assured that we have done everything in our power to prevent this from happening, but have been unable to overcome the various obstacles we faced.

As soon as we have the content on our premises and encoded, we will post the missing update(s) immediately. I will provide an update to this post as soon as we have more details for you all.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact customer support by clicking here to submit our web form.

More Soon,
Bob and The VB Content Team

Flow Mode Greatly Improved!

Hey VideoBoxers,

I know it was not lost on some of you that our Flow Mode feature has not been working as well as any of us would have liked since February of this year. I apologize for the downgraded experience, and I am elated to tell you that the flow mode experience is tremendously better as of our code updates yesterday afternoon.

so-much-porn

Everyone here at VideoBox sincerely wishes you a very heavy flow for many years to come! Enjoy, and please let us know if you encounter any further issues with the performance. We think it’s looking great, but sometimes little surprises pop up once a feature is released into the wild.

If you do have issues to report, using our “Contact Us” form is ideal for troubleshooting assistance, but comments below are great too. Either way, the more details you provide, the better.

Cheers,
Bob and The VB Team

Adam & Eve Is Back!

Hey VideoBoxers,

Our content team has been busy lately, making deals to bring you more great porn from top studios. I mentioned our other recent addition just yesterday, and today I want to point out that, after a 9-year gap, new titles from Adam & Eve are once again hitting VideoBox!

adam-full-cover

We are delighted to have Adam & Eve back in the VideoBox family. We’ve got 15 of their movies on the site now, with many more on their way to you. Once again, all of us here wish you the happiest of quality porn viewing in the weeks, months and years to come.

Enjoy,
Bob and The VB Team

Devil’s Film Now on VB!

Hey Everyone,

I’m willing to bet most of you already noticed this, but for the few of you who don’t check the site daily, you may have missed a very exciting addition to the VB catalog: Devil’s Film!

dh-full-cover

This deal has been in the works for some time, and we are stoked to welcome Devil’s Film to the VideoBox family. We already have 18 “Devil’s Hardcore” titles on the site, with much more of their content to come. All of us here hope you all thoroughly enjoy the quality porn that’s here now and will continue to come your way.

Have Fun,
Bob and The VB Team

Elegant Angel Release-Rate Change

Everyone,

It should be no secret by now that porn production has slowed down in recent years. Nearly every studio out there is producing fewer new titles each year than they used to. For this reason, from time to time we have to reduce the rate at which we post new titles from said studios.

Case in point: our premium channel of Elegant Angel content. Our update schedule will soon outpace their rate of output unless we reduce the number of DVDs we post each week. So, as of this coming Saturday, April 25th, we will be releasing 1 new DVD from Elegant Angel each week.

The price of the channel will remain $15 per month, which we think is still a great deal considering that you get more than 2,070 scenes to stream or download & keep when you sign up. Also, we are very close to the point where we have all of the best Elegant Angel content on the site, and their brand-new releases will become available to you on VideoBox very soon after the studio releases them.

Cheers,
Bob and the VB Team

Clip-Creation in Flash Player is Back!

Hey Everyone,

Tuesdays are rarely very fun or exciting. Well, we’ve decided to change all that by letting you know that we released an update to our flash player today, and among other things, it restores the custom-clip creation feature to the player.

yes-Clint-Eastwood

Sure, Clint’s playing it cool, but here at VB HQ we are pretty stoked about it. Oh, and did I mention that every single scene on the site has been available for custom clipping since the beginning of March? Maybe you already knew that?

This release also re-enables the “HQ” button on the player, so you can manually choose between higher and lower-res streams, which is especially nice for HD scenes if you’ve got the bandwidth.

FUCK-YEAH

We also have drastic performance improvements to the flow mode player underway now, so you should see that work hit the site shortly. I have some other cool news to announce soon as well, but let’s not blow our whole load on a Tuesday, right?

Enjoy,
Bob and The VB Team

Flow Mode Updated

Everyone,

Like the Roku channel, we have another item functional in time for your weekend: flow mode is showing watchable-resolution videos when you select one. Thanks again to all of you for your patience as we worked feverishly to get our player to show the good stuff.

Rest assured, if there’s something else not quite working for you, someone has been tasked with making it right and won’t be resting until it is. And you should hit us up with any issues you are having via our Contact Us form, where awesome customer service folks are ready to dive in and help you get the site working for you.

Enjoy,
Bob and the VB Team

Roku Channel Updated

Everyone,

Just in time for the weekend: the VideoBox Roku channel has nice, full-screen preview images and the full set of fast-forward/rewind images once more. Thank you all for your patience as we worked with our content system to get the right images in place.

set-up-enjoy

Next up in our Roku World, we will be adding HLS video streaming which provides the right bitrate for your bandwidth, like you see with Netflix and many other video-streaming providers. This work is already underway, and I will update this post as soon as it is live.

Cheers,
Bob and the VB Team

Old Site (VB2) Retired

Dear VideoBoxers,

ship-sailed

Today we bid a fond farewell to our old site, known to many as VB2, as it sails beyond the horizon. Thank you to everyone who enjoys this site, whether in its old form(s) or in its current one, or both. We know some of you are sad to see her go, but all of us here at VB strongly feel that this is going to turn out great for all of you in the long run. Believe me, we would not have done this if we didn’t.

So, even as we say goodbye to the old site and the codebase that supported it, we are excited about the modern makeover VideoBox is getting behind the curtains and the redesign that is soon to come. Stay tuned, because this is not an ending but a new beginning.

Cheers,
Bob and the Whole VB Team

Welcome… to the FUTURE!

Hi Everybody,

Yes, it’s a huge week here at VideoBox HQ, as we boldly venture into… the FUTURE!

OK, so mostly what I mean by that is, as of now we are no longer offering WMVs for scene downloads. You can get more info about the decision, and tips for using our other files, on this page.

back-to-future

But the move away from WMVs is only part of a sweeping modernization and tech upgrade. We are finishing up our migration from our own servers to a fully-virtual cloud solution for our application and content servers.

If that makes no sense to you, don’t worry about it; the simple version is, the site will be run with the latest technology, including video streams that get higher- or lower-res depending on your Internet connection. This should make things faster and snappier for you and make it easier for us to grow and improve.

I can’t promise you there won’t be some rockiness along the way, and some of you may have seen a little of it in the last week or so, but rest assured that when this migration is complete it will make 2015 a great year to watch porn.

Leave us a comment below or send an email via our contact us form if you have questions, concerns or words of celebration. Here’s to the future!

Best Regards,
Bob and the Whole VB Team
