Homoactive TV review

Summary: Homoactive TV is a gay pay per view pornsite that throws credits out the window, and gives you the price per minute in actual dollars. That's a great thing to see (I'm not a fan of credits, Microsoft points, or any other random currency used instead of cash). The collection is large, and daily updates keep a fresh variety coming in. It's a solid effort that could probably use a few bells and whistles to take it over the top.

First impression

The first thing I notice when I visit Homoactive TV is that they have many different language options, so if you're looking for an international gay site it looks like they've got you covered. It is a video on demand site, which means you get a free account and you pay a certain amount per credit or minute to watch the content.

The tour is pretty much identical to the member's area, so you'll get a good idea of just how everything is arranged here. They explain how to use the site, provide a link to grab some credits, and have 11 different categories and a boatload of studios to select from. A keyword search provides a way to look through the collection, or you can pick a director. Homoactive TV updates every day, and the latest and greatest are shown down the middle. The top 20 movies are given in the sidebar, so you'll have a good area to start with.

Our opinion

Let's talk about the credit system to start off with. Unlike many video on demand sites that use a credit amount when you pay, Homoactive TV has all videos set at a dollar amount per minute. That makes it a little more clear on how much you're spending per minute compared to some VOD sites. They also have a loyalty program in place that adds free credits to your accounts from movie watching. You can redeem these for account credits once you reach 1,000 points. Videos range in price from .15 a minute to .39 a minute. On average it's a bit more expensive than lower credit packages on other VOD sites, and a lot more expensive if you compare prices of higher minute packages. There are 872 gay DVDs to choose from.

The video pages provide a front and back cover of the DVD, link to the studio, price per minute, loyalty credit, description, and link to all starring models. The scenes are arranged below the DVD info box, and you also have clickable keywords and two screencaps to give you an idea of what's going on in the scene. Scenes vary in length from video to video. Usually they're around 15 to 20 minutes, with up to 8 scenes per DVD. Some videos allow you to choose the entire DVD to view at once.

The video is provided in a Flash streaming player only, shown at 640x360 and 1.5 mbps. The streaming is very smooth, and the quality pretty good for streaming. There's little buffering. The player has basic controls and allows you to quickly skip between places in the video. If the streaming is no so smooth for you, you can choose a low resolution option. The size is the same, but the bitrate is reduced to around 500 kbps.

Conclusion

The clarity in viewing costs is appreciated, and the site is pretty user friendly. I also liked the large variety of studios, models, and niches that they offered. The videos are streaming only and it could have used a few more viewing features, such as additional qualities. It's worth a look if you see something you like, and since the tour is the member's area, you can look all you want.
