Homoactive TV is a video-on-demand site with a relatively good number of DVDs. Even if there aren't thousands of them, there are some truly hot ones to look at. They seem to favor the European porn studios, which are filled with studs boasting incredible bods and thick, uncut rods, so this site won't disappoint you.
Besides there being some prime specimens on HomoactiveTV, you'll also find a good mix of amateurs and pornstars, vanilla-flavored hardcore featuring sweet twink couples, and more extreme scenes with fetish themes, like fisting, smoking, uniforms and pissing. There's a healthy dose of bareback sex to enjoy too. Quite a few scenes feature either mature men with each other or older dads with younger lads.
There are 725 DVDs that roughly translates into over 3,600 full-length scenes. They come in a mostly great-looking Flash format. Around 40 are labeled "HD" and they look much better even when you enlarge them to full screen. You can now download-to-own more than 330 titles. More than 35 of them can be saved in high-def versions, although you'll have to pay around 15 percent more.
When you click on the scene you want to watch, the player skips to that part of the full-length DVD. If you try to skip too far forward or back in the footage you could end up in a different scene from the movie. I found that this time around the streams didn't work quite as well as I remember from the past. Skipping ahead can take so long that in some instances you won't be sure the player is still connected.
The cost per minute varies, but in USD I saw it range from 14 to 29 cents. For our lists of prices, I calculated the maximum minutes of playback you can get at the rate of around 21 cents per minute, because that's the average price charged. Meanwhile, a downloaded DVD is around $40 with most HD ones costing about $5 more. That's comparable to what a hardcopy might cost.
All plans actually credit more money to your online account than is charged to your card. Obviously, the more expensive the plan the higher the ratio of extra funds you'll receive. In the U.K. and Europe, you will be charged in your local currency. Purchases always come with bonus points that you can put toward future viewing.
You can also sign up to their weekly newsletter to hear about the latest titles and any special offers. Considering that they've added more than 30 updates in the last 30 days, you might need some help keeping on top of all they've got. Homoactive TV has a decent selection of DVDs.
