"Variety is the spice of life," goes the old saying that embraces choice and XXX Member Channels has taken that credo to heart, supplying you with a bevy of hardcore content from stars and studios past and present. Let's take a look, shall we, and find out more about what this site has to offer.
On XXXMemberChannels, there are over 32,300 streaming videos taken from 6,460 DVDs. They update every day, each time adding anywhere from 4 to 10 new scenes to their already massive database. The site makes it easy to find the new releases and most popular films. You can sort them by release date, title and the year they were posted. The design isn't bad, but it is a little basic.
The two formats available for streaming in embedded players are Windows Media and Flash (there's no download option). Both formats look pretty good although often the Windows Media movies look average. Most scenes have a high-bandwidth Flash stream, which is your best bet. Although there are no pictures, every DVD comes with a set of vid caps.
A menu bar runs down the left-hand side of the screen and lists all the categories, like gonzo, hardcore, blowjob, BBW, etc. My favorite is the parody section where I could watch naughty versions of "Big Love," "Indiana Jones" and the "Twilight" series. However, the categories, while helpful, are too broad for a library this size. There's a basic search bar at the top, too.
Clicking a performer's name will send you to a page that lists all the films they appear in, but your best approach is to click a category and browse the selections page by page. It can be tedious, but the lack of an advanced search engine leaves you little choice. Also, while there is pagination, you can't skip ahead to the last page or by more than 10 pages at a time, which means loads of clicking if you're surfing the entire collection of 300+ pages.
Included with a membership is access to XXX Adult Centro, a movie site with a better design and navigation, along with an impressive library of porn of its own. Taken all together you're looking at thousands of hours of porn goodness. In the end, XXX Member Channels gives you a ton of enjoyable content at a standard price, but the lack of downloads and better search functions hurt the overall score.
