Looking for the best adult video on demand sites?
If you really want to ‘Netflix and Chill‘, then perhaps Netflix isn’t exactly the right choice of streaming service. It certainly has a shortage of explicit content…
Instead, you might want to turn to some of the best adult video on demand sites, many of which offer casting or Roku compatibility so you can enjoy some of the best feature length porn flicks on your TV.
Once the preserve of hotel guests enjoying some late night blue movies on the good old pay-per-view channels, video on demand (VOD) has become one of the better premium ways of consuming porn.
In this guide, we take a look at the history of adult video on demand vs pay-per-view services, and then we give you our picks for the best adult VOD sites.
What is an Adult Video On Demand Site?
Commonly known as VOD, video-on-demand sites offer a service similar to Netflix or other streaming platform.
The only difference with adult VOD is that instead of watching the next season of Stranger Things or hitting up some classic Hollywood blockbusters like Titanic, the movies you can watch on all our recommended sites (below) are porno flicks.
Adult Video On Demand services began life in hotel rooms offering guests a convenient way to catch a blue-movie whilst staying with them.
The service was first popularised in the 1950s as ‘theatre television’.
It was originally conceived as an idea for boxing promoters to broadcast live bouts to peak audiences via a closed-circuit television system. It was easy to see that this kind of format could be a good money spinner and other industries outside of professional sports were interested in how to use it.
Theatre Television became Pay-Per-View (PPV) and this kind of service was quickly adapted to other types of television broadcasting with programmes being scheduled but the signals being scrambled until valid payment was taken over a telephone.
By the 1980s, some telecasters were beginning to broadcast porn movies and the idea was taken up by hotels and motels who knew exactly what their clients want when they stay for a night away from home.
Since the introduction of digital cable and streaming services, PPV services have been in decline with video-on-demand now offering some superior benefits.
Firstly, with PPV a program was scheduled to start at a given time whereas VOD streaming allows the user to start, stop, pause and replay a movie to suit them.
Secondly, when it comes to staying in a hotel, more and more guests bring their own tablet/laptop or other streaming devices with them meaning they don’t have to rely on the hotel’s television.
With free Wi-Fi often being available or 4G/5G mobile broadband, gone are the days when guests had to settle their bills at reception with a red face!
Despite the fall in its popularity, PPV is far from being dead in the water and its evolution has gone full circle with the format still being used for live sporting events.
However, when it comes to watching adult content on demand, VOD is the new way to watch what you want, when you want.
Best Adult Video On Demand Sites
There are hundreds of platforms on the market all offering adult videos on demand but we’ve chosen the best services based on:
- Range of Porn Movies
- Streaming Speed
- Ease of Use
We’ve also selected our favorite VOD services that come to you directly from some of the biggest porn studios.
With over 73,000 high quality porn movies on demand and 320,000+ scenes, the Adult Empire is certainly one of the biggest names in VOD services.
The company is both an online retailer of physical goods as well as a video streaming service. Adult Empire began life as a seller of adult DVDs in 1997 when the very first porn DVD, Bobby Sox, was released. Since then they have branched out to stock sex toys as well as DVDs plus now offer adult videos on demand.
Winner of 12 AVN awards for Best Retail Website and the five-time consecutive winner for VOD Site of the Year (XBiz Awards), Adult Empire is the most well-known, trusted and largest of the selections on our list. Hell, they’ve even launched their own productions studio (AE Films) so they can give their customers exactly what they want.
Their huge and diverse selection of films extends to cover all of the big-name studios including:
- Marc Dorcel
- Evil Angel
- Jules Jordan
- Wicked Pictures
- Reality Kings
As well as offering access to these films via online streaming, you can also buy and rent movies using the ROKU app. There are two channel codes to choose from:
- ROKU Channel Code: ADEUnlimited
- ROKU Channel Code (discreet version): AESundial
Adult Empire offers a good choice of ways to pay including:
- Pay Per Minute
- HD Download and Stream for Life
- HD 7 Day Rental
These are often in addition to the option of purchasing a physical DVD.
Prices vary by movie but you can also purchase an ongoing subscription to their Premium Plan which gives you unlimited access to all of their online content:
- 2-day trial – $2.99
- $24.99 per month
- $49.98 per quarter
- $149.94 per year
‘The Leader in Video on Demand Since 1999’, AEBN (Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network) is another major player in this market.
With a library in excess of 100,000 titles and reaching an audience of more than 150 million unique visitors each month, they are certainly one of the biggest and best purveyors of adult movies on demand.
With such a huge choice, it goes without saying that you shouldn’t have any trouble finding something to suit your tastes here; from kinks and fetishes to classic MILFs, lesbians and teens all of the main studios are represented, including:
- Club Seventeen
- Erotica X
- Team Skeet
- Wicked Pictures
As one of the largest online adult VOD services, AEBN holds a lot of sway with the main studios and as a result has some exclusive content which you can only find here. This includes over 1,100 titles from studios like Girlsway, MYLF, New Sensations and Porn Pros.
AEBN has also launched its on-demand VR streaming video service which is proving very popular.
Just like Adult Empire, you can also stream, rent or but adult movies across AEBN on the Roku app; choose from one of the following channels:
- AEBN Roku Channel Code: AEBN
- AEBN Roku Channel Code (Discreet): AEBN 2
You can watch any of the titles across the site either via a 48 hour rental, stream for life or download services; costs vary by film but can be as low as a few dollars for a full length film.
You can also set up an automatic subscription which will top up your account with a set number of minutes at the start of each month.
It is worth pointing out that the AEBN brand is syndicated and you can find exactly the same content, just under a different name when hitting up some other video on demand sites, including the popular Movie Monster
With more than 234,000 titles to view, Hot Movies is another big player in the adult video on demand market. The site has been operating since 2003 and works on a Pay Per Minute model.
Their vast collection includes everything from new releases by the top studios through to some obscure titles from as early as the 1960s. In fact, this is one site you want to be bookmarking if you are looking for vintage, classic and retro porno films.
Well indexed within a range of categories from Asian and Interracial to Group Sex and Hardcore, you won’t have any difficulties finding anything here to float your boat.
There is even a good selection of foreign language films including Czech, Japanese, French and Swedish…even a couple of Hebrew pornos.
The site is really well designed and offers some good ways to search for content allowing for the fact that a library this big is almost intimidating to get to grips with.
We’d recommend a search through their AVN Top 500 if you want to find some of the best content but all of the films are well tagged meaning you can find your favorite genre of porn via the ‘Categories’ tab.
Prices here are very competitive and you can watch content by paying for one of the following options:
- Pay Per Minute (Streaming)
- 7-Day Rental (Streaming)
- Lifetime Streaming
- Lifetime Streaming and Download
Prices vary by film but minutes come in packages which start from $9.95 for 69 minutes. Alternatively you can opt for a monthly membership for $24.95 which gives you 270 minutes per month (310 in the first month) plus reward points, free clips and additional bonuses.
Again, just like AEBN, you can find white label versions of the Hot Movies website being used by a couple of other services including Elegant Angel.
One of the biggest names in the adult industry, Larry Flynt launched the Hustler magazine back in the 1970s and since then the brand has branched out to multiple other ventures. From strip clubs and casinos to retail stores and other porn publications, Hustler is a trusted brand name for quality adult entertainment.
The Hustler VOD site brings together their own own huge collection of porn film titles as well as a massive selection of films syndicated from other studios, From retro porn from the 1960s and 1970s through to brand new releases in 4K, HD and VR, there are over 92,000 films to choose from.
And choosing is pretty easy with a good range of filters and search facilities allowing you to drill down by studio, star, series and category as well as by movies on sale, new releases, just added and most-watched.
The adult videos are available to stream (either via rental or purchase) or download with prices ranging from a few dollars up to $20+ for the latest releases. You can also purchase minutes so you don’t have to commit to a single title, instead you just get charged for the time you watch. There are no recurring membership fees so you can simply pay as you go.
Three times winner of the XBiz award for VOD Site of the Year, Game Link is another huge player in this market…and for good reason.
They have over 348,000 titles available to watch on their service and they range from vintage titles through to the latest 3D, interactive, UHD and VR movies.
The site is easy to use and features fast streaming and a secure payment portal.
As for finding what you want with this service, the browsing is simple and all the films are well categorized by genre as well as by tag. If you want to start anywhere then just like Hot Movies, they feature an Award Winning Porn section which throws up some of the most popular and acclaimed adult film titles.
All movies can be streamed online (many in UHD 4K) or can be downloaded. The simplest way to pay is by purchasing a bundle of minutes and then watching what you like or you could just pay per movie. Minutes are available to buy in the following denominations:
- 10 minutes – $2.95
- 30 minutes – $5.95
- 60 Minutes – $8.95
- 120 Minutes – $14.95

- 300 minutes – $29.95
- 500 minutes – $49.95
- 1000 minutes – $89.95
- 3000 minutes – $249.95
It is worth noting that Private VOD uses exactly the same service to offer its streaming platform.
The European porn giants just use a white label of the Game Link site in order to provide video on demand to its customers.
A slightly different business model, adult movies on Video Box are available to watch with a flat rate monthly membership fee rather than by title.
They have around 22,000 movies to stream online covering 100 niches and:
- 114,000+ scenes
- 307,600+ clips
- 12,900+ porn stars
- 550+ studios
With at least five new DVD titles added daily, there is certainly enough content here to keep you entertained for some time. You can even create your own clips from your favorite movies and scenes and save these to your online account.
There are four ways to pay for your subscription with an 18-month plan providing you with a free Roku so you can cast your porno flicks to your TV. Prices are currently being charged as follows:
- $15 per month
- $60 for six months
- $96 for twelve months
- $144 for eighteen months
Best Adult Video on Demand Sites By Porn Studios
Of course, with a business model like this, the studios themselves are keen to get in on the action.
Though companies like Hustler are able to offer syndicated content from other studios, most will only sell their own titles.
We’ve selected just a handful of our favorite VOD services from some well-known porn studios.
With access to over 6,000 French and International porn films PLUS the whole back catalog of all of the Marc Dorcel Production titles, this 4K and HD VOD service is very popular in Europe,
Known for their luxurious filming style with glamorous locations and gorgeous models, Marc Dorcel has been in business since 1979.
For Porno-Chic there aren’t many studios that could take them on but you can find some of their content on the above multi-studio services. However, here at Dorcel Vision, the content includes all of their titles as well as multi-lingual audio options (French, German, Italian, Spanish and English).
Unlike many of the services listed above, there isn’t an option to pay for the streaming here by the minute. Instead, you must pay to download or stream at varying costs from as low as $2 for a 48 hour rental to $20+ for unlimited streaming & download.
A Good Release
The Video On Demand service from the Hungarian porn studio, DDF Productions, A Good Release only has around 600 movies to stream but they are all in their signature Euro Hardcore style.
It’s not the easiest site to find scenes on but if you are a fan of their work then this offers a convenient way to view new titles.
Prices for movies start from as low as $1.49 but each film is priced at different amounts of tokens. These can be purchased as follows:
- 5 Tokens for $9.95
- 20 Tokens for $29.95
Missa X VOD
The boutique porn studio Missa X has been running since 2011 and though their output is somewhat smaller than some of the other names on this list, they do have quite an avid following.
Run by Miss X and her husband, their films are elaborately crafted with excellent story lines, fiery dialogue and often some very powerful psychological scenarios. At all times, the emphasis is on genuine romance, passionate sex and authentic emotions.
Their VOD website lets you purchase any of their content to stream with prices ranging from a few dollars per scene up to around $10 for a full-length feature film.
