The owners of the Home video club expanded its business when in January 1992, the company started a porn channel called The Adult Channel, a satellite delivered subscription service that features cable version adult movies. The Adult Channel broadcast four hours a day commencing at 00:00, and was available to approximately 2 million cable households and approximately 4 million (DTH) satellite households in the United Kingdom. The Adult Channel was also available to DTH satellite households throughout Continental Europe and had subscribers in over 40 countries.
The Home Video Channel continued to operate during the evening with exclusive movie service featuring action, adventure and horror during the pre-midnight. The two services were offered to cable operators as a seamless 20:00 to 04:00 programming service at a package price. In 1994, the Home Video Channel Limited was acquired by Spice Entertainment Companies, Inc. Spice expanded its distribution of The Adult Channel throughout the rest of Europe.
