According to a news story first released by XBIZ.com and followed-up today in an article in the New York Post, Playboy has announced that they will be launching a gay-themed television station/video channel. According to the article,
“Playboy Enterprises, the parent company behind the famous girlie magazine for men, confirmed they are launching a gay-porn cable station that could start operating as soon as next month.”
While the offering is currently being called “Gay Targeted VOD Package Service,” one would think that the name “Gayboy” sounds much more marketable. Interestingly enough, a Whois search shows the domain name Gayboy.com (a parked page) is owned by an investment company in the Caribbean, and a Historical Whois search shows the domain name was previously owned by Virtual Dates, a company founded by Rick Schwartz.
