You're in for something of a gay hardcore treat at Channel 1 Releasing with work from Chi Chi LaRue and four hot studios, Rascal, Dirk Yates, All Worlds and Catalina, all now under the control of this top porn producer and her amazing team. The site has had a complete revamp since we last saw it and so now we have a chance to tell you exactly what you'll find when you sign up to this number one gay hardcore site.

The members' area is arranged by Movies, Scenes, Models, Studios and a link to their store should you want to buy any of the titles and own them. The videos here are stream only, because they are also for sale, but with the well-priced membership you can afford to log in and stay logged in to take advantage of the updates and to see the new releases before anyone else. We're look at well-made hardcore here with hunky studs and exclusive men. The guys are usually pretty fit, toned and spectacular to see, with rock solid cocks and hard asses, there's masses of fucking vids and duo scenes, threesomes and storylines, plus pure sex movies as well. Some titles of some of the 203 full length DVDs will let you know what to expect: 'Fuck Me Raw,' 'The Cum Guzzler Club,' and 'Daddy Issues,' for example. The box shots are as good as the movies and each of the DVDs come with long descriptions, details, and links to their streaming scenes.

Streams start as soon as you click on one and you have up to four options for speeds, with an auto function selecting what's best for you. The top speed here was at 4,000 kbps, with the size of screen depending on your monitor as it's an 'adaptive video player', they are mobile compatible and look great. Click to the scenes area and find 938 scenes to stream with a long category list to help you decide what to watch first. Click through the numbered index pages and you fall back in time; the earliest movie here was a Jeff Stryker scene but still available in four speeds to stream. Scenes run for 20 minutes or so and it looks like the update promises are being kept to.
If I had any grumbles about the scenes it's that there's no info with them, you have to find that from the DVD pages, but search them and you will find info about the scenes and links to the models. They are worth a mention as these guys are what make these DVDs work. The model index holds 32 exclusive stars such as Johnny Hazzard, Brent Everett and Jimmy Durano. The complete index shows you over 1,200 models and you can search them by first letter of their first name, but not by age or any other category - it would have been nice to have had that option. But still, there's a wide variety of guys here, all good looking and fit, from twinks to studs, a lot of smooth guys and a mix of white, Latino and black. There are a few details about each one on their own pages plus links to their videos.

There are good things going on here, the site is easy to get around and looks good, the movies stream easily and you have up to four options for streaming speed. There are good details with the DVDs (the best way to check out scenes if you ask me) and you can click the 'Buy DVD' link on the DVD page and get to the old look, pay per view site if you want; from there you can also buy the full DVD and order it. There is a search box and you can add things to a favourites area but there are no other interactive options and no galleries. The Studios menu item lets you list content by studio, another way to search and I had no technical hassles with the site.


Although there are no dates on content it looks like the site is keeping to its update promises and although it's not very interactive, it is easy to use and presents you with instant streaming of some very classy movies. Channel 1 Releasing holds only good quality gay hardcore with many themes, bareback included, and the quality is great. You won't find galleries but there is a handy model index with some top names from gay porn plus others, and you're in for wall to wall sex with some perfect models in well directed scenes.
