HotMovies is an online adult video-on-demand service which operates on a pay-per-minute system.

History[edit]

Hotmovies.com was officially launched in January 2003.[citation needed] Leveraging state-of-the-art video streaming technology, Hotmovies created a unique Pay-Per-Minute streaming system that allowed viewers to watch any portion of over 7,000 adult video titles from major adult studios on their home computers. Hotmovies utilizes a system of pre-purchased minutes.

In 2004, Hotmovies launched its affiliate program Moviedollars.com, which allowed a webmaster to create custom branded Pay-Per-Minute theater sites.[1] Affiliates receive a commission on every sale their customers make.

In August 2008, Hotmovies.com passed 100,000 video titles available for streaming.[2] Hotmovies celebrated the event with The Hundred Grand Gala, held in Philadelphia and featuring adult performers Ron Jeremy, Joanna Angel & Flower Tucci, among others. The event opened with a live performance by Peek-A-Boo Revue.[citation needed]

HotMovies is the only legally licensed distributor for the Cecil Howard's catalogue of Command Cinema releases from the 1970s and early 1980s.[3]

Hotmovies.com offers over 175,000 video titles from over 2,000 studios.[citation needed]

Joint Ventures[edit]

In 2005, Moviedollars.com sponsored the YNotRadio.com Marketing Moments.[4]

Hotmovies has partnered with the Free Speech Coalition to produce the one-day fundraising event "FreedomStreams ’06"[5]

Hotmovies also became a presenting sponsor of Exxxotica Miami Beach 2007.[6]

Hotmovies has digitized the K-Beech classic Midnight line.[7] Classic flicks from the 1980s and 1990s will be digitized for the first time ever.

LeMayzing Productions has gone online exclusively with Hotmovies.[8]

James Deen has directed and starred in five Hotmovies exclusives.[9]

In June 2012, adult filmmaker Ed Powers announced the continuation of his Dirty Debutantes line, volume 370, exclusively on HotMovies websites, including EdPowersVOD.com. It premiered on Wednesday, August 1.[citation needed]

The Free Speech Coalition joined forces with Hotmovies to produce an Anti-Measure B benefit.[10]
