Update For SOD Subscribers

UPDATE: we missed 2 release dates, but got caught up right away. We apologize again for any inconvenience and will work hard to ensure that this dos not repeat. Thank you for your understanding, and your membership.

*****************************

Dear SOD Subscribers,

Just wanted to let you all know that due to logistical challenges with getting content from Japan to the USA, we are projecting that we will miss a couple of DVD update dates in the next week or so. We are very sorry for the inconvenience; we know how important it is to all of our members that new content hits the site on time. This is doubly true in the case of a channel upgrade, which costs an extra fee above the base membership price. Please rest assured that we have done everything in our power to prevent this from happening, but were unable to overcome the various obstacles we faced. We are also taking steps now to prevent this from ever happening again.

As soon as we have the content on our premises and encoded, we will begin posting double updates on each release day until we have caught up to the number of DVDs expected. I will also 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

Elegant Angel: Glamour Girls #3 Elegant Angel: Big Wet Asses #15 Elegant Angel: Pornstar Workout #2 Elegant Angel: Big Wet Tits #8




Soft On Demand

SOD (Soft on Demand) is the top adult studio in Japan. A common request we receive is for more Japanese content, so we made a concerted effort to bring you the best there is.

Update: Changing “Newest DVDs” to “Recommended DVDs”

I just want to add an update to my last post.



While I still feel adding “Recommended DVDs” was a good change (as seen by an increase in our download numbers), I don’t wish to alienate the many members who want to see the latest content. So we’re going to change the home page to show:

  • Recommended DVDs
  • Recently Popular DVDs
  • Latest DVDs



We’ll tweak the “recently popular” calculation to emphasize newer content. That way, “recently popular” will change a lot, while still selecting for quality.



Also, we’ve verified that many custom clips fail if you download all the way to the end of the scene. We have a fix for this problem.



All of these changes should go out soon (within a week or so).



Thanks,



Josh

Roku Porn, Stick & Mobile

Hey All,

It should come as no surprise that we’re fans of the Roku box; our updated Roku channel is my personal favorite recent VideoBox enhancement. If you haven’t tried Roku porno yet, we’ll have some fun news for you in the near future that we hope will make that much easier for you. But while you wait for more details on that, there’s a Roku announcement from CNET that the VB team thought was pretty cool:

Roku’s “streaming stick” is coming out in October for $99. It packs all the punch of a Roku box into a little USB stick that plugs into TVs and is instantly out of sight, out of mind. Rest assured we’ll be playing with one in the VB office as soon as we can get our hands on it!

Roku also has a mobile app that we enjoy. It allows you to use your device as a remote (oh-so-handy when typing searches or logging in for the first time). According to the same CNET article, an update to the Roku app enables AirPlay-like streaming of music and photos from your device to your TV. Whether you’re streaming porn or looking at vacation photos with your kids (because you’ve installed our discreet app and enabled the parental access controls, right?), this sounds like another great reason to have a Roku in your house.

Read the full details here: http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7-57516280-221/roku-streaming-stick-coming-in-october-for-$99-while-mobile-app-adds-airplay-esque-streaming/

And, let us know what you think of the VideoBox Roku porn app, or the announcements above, down in the comments.

Happy Friday,
Bob

New VB Channel: Club Tranny

Hey Everyone,

Today we are proud to announce the launch of our newest VBChannel, an all-Transsexual channel known as Club Tranny!

Over the years we have found that there is a high demand for quality Transsexual content from many of our users. However, it is challenging to find great quality at affordable prices, and it can cause controversy if we post a lot of it within the standard daily updates. For these reasons, we are offering this optional stand-alone channel to satisfy the demand without adding a surplus of this content to VideoBox. This change will not affect existing Transsexual content on VideoBox, and we will continue the occasional non-channel Transsexual releases.

For those who are interested in this channel, here are the details:

  • 40 full DVDs available as of this writing, with an additional 3 DVDs added each week
  • Content from a diverse group of top studios, including Tranny Kingz, Trans Erotica and Gia Darling
  • Regularly $20 a month, but discounted for a limited time to only $15 a month!

We hope you enjoy this offering if it interests you. And, if Transsexual content is not your bag, we hope you continue to enjoy your membership without concern that you will be weeding through a sudden increase in shemale videos.

Either way, have fun!
