They've said this right from the start. Guess it shows how thick bible bashers really are.

+1 000 000

That would be expected of a Porn service on a pay-tv service. I don't see anything wrong though with having a porn service, i mean if you don't want porn you dont have to pay for it. simple

How can you sound normal when you have to activate such a product / add-on?

"Contact a separate Call Centre to activate the device"

Do you just go ahead and say: "HI, I'm Mr so-and-so, subscriber number XXX, and I would like to activate my... uhm.. my... Adult Beneficiary Package please..."

What an extra subscription just for the Pron Channel and it’s to be pin protected?!

Definitely not worth the effort.
When you have the internet.

I'm sorry sir, I can't hear you, there seems to be a loud flapping noise in the background

Ohhh religious folk getting all high and mighty on the atrocities of porno... The irony is quite tickling.

Err how did you add the packages in the 1st place mate ?
You phone in confirm details, and say you'd like the adult package bolted on...

What is confusing though is the Pin, is it going to be a separate pin for the one already used on the parental guidance lock or not. If it is separate this will require a software update & while they doing that change the hideous U.I ... Its really not much too ask now is it.

The pin is obviously just the parental lock. It already seems to require you to enter the pin whenever their air an 18R movie.

R199 is a bit steep, I would have gotten it for R99 but for 199 I will think twice.

+1. Yip, interwebz porn is much better as a value proposition. Signup for Naughty America promo special for R69 per month plus uncapped dsl (R199 for 384) beats R199 pm TopTV porn.

meh, seems like too much of the hassle, plus expensive considering all the pr0n on the webs

"Ummmm, i'd like to activate the Adult channel please"
"Ok sir, we have to confirm your request with your wife"

I really like the PIN code idea - can we extend that to the religious programming too?
+1 .... but I suspect the g.o.d. botherers will still be upset.
You see, it's not that they only want to deny themselves, as is their (god given??) right .... they also want to dictate to everyone else that others should not be subjected to what THEY consider undesirable content

Congratulations TopTV, I hope everything goes a little more smoothly from now on. :)

Now I'm gonna start moaning about the exorbitant prices of Premium TV and Internet
services. :D
