DIRECTV's adult HDTV lineup will air every Thursday through Sunday from midnight to 6 a.m. ET. Robert Mercer, a DIRECTV spokesman, said the adult fare will be sold in three hour blocks for $14.99 per block. The films, which will come from Playboy and the Spice channel, will be available on DIRECTV's Pay-Per-View channel from midnight to 6 a.m. ET.

But not everybody think that Adult HDTV will be a good idea. Playboy TV president Jim English sounded a note of caution last summer when asked if adult films would fare well on HDTV.

"A lot of the girls are not that pretty. You can only do so much with hair and make-up," English said in an interview with "HDTV is perfect for National Geographic and the National Football League where you don't expect people to be pretty. But adult films are all about the close-up. With surgeries and implants, I don't know if you want to see everything in HDTV."

Well, if it is done tastefully, then it might be worth watching. Most of material on HD channel probably be softcore stuff like Playboy material since probably they are the only one that can afford HD equipments and camera ;)
