Vivid has secured distribution deals with two of the top 10 U.S television platforms that serve a total of 20 million homes across the nation.

Vivid Entertainment might be best known for their ‘Vivid-Celeb’ division specializing in pornographic films starring celebrities. Some of their most famed films include; Vince Neil Hardcore & Uncensored, The Tom Sizemore Sex Scandal, Kim Kardashian Superstar, Mindy McCready Baseball Mistress, and Kendra Exposed.

VividTV intends to capitalize on the American audiences fascination with celebrity culture by offering exclusive, never-before-seen footage from the Vivid Celeb line of videos.

Additionally, veteran TV exec, Ken Boenish, has been appointed as president of VividTV, which is set to launch later this month.

"I am thrilled to be a part of this exciting new venture for Vivid," said Mr. Boenish

"Vivid has what is undeniably the most notable and well-recognized brand in the business and the content to back it up. The studio is the most award-winning producer this industry has ever seen and I look forward to using my experience to enhance adult entertainment offerings for TV platform operators in the US and around the world."

“VividTV already has very valuable distribution deals in place and under the leadership of Ken Boenish we should make rapid and important advances as we move forward in this vibrant space," said Bill Asher, co-chairman of Vivid. "He is exactly the right person to pull all the pieces together for success."
