Site Details:

C1R
Introduction:

C1R is the base of internet operations for Channel 1 Releasing, a Los Angeles based company who are a major player in the adult industry, and one of the largest producers of gay porn in the world. In the capable hands of Chi Chi LaRue, this company not only makes hot movies but produces live shows too. And here they let you into their world with a large collection of fun and horny things to see and do. This is a definite place to come for all fans of the company, their stars, their movies and for anyone who simply wants to know more about what this top company is up to.

Main idea:

As a member here you will get access to five new, full length movies every week, news and articles, blogs and trailers. You will be able to meet the hot stars of the movies, find out what’s going on behind the scenes and click into the live shows and their archives, and that little lot is worth the sigh up fee on its own. But you can also access their video on demand area where you have 30 free minutes each month to boost your value for money, and all this is wrapped up in a site which has one of the best designs around. It’s interactive and fun, informative and, best of all, you get good quality movies to view every week – exclusive and original.

Member's area:

What you see on the tour is basically what you have when you login. Except as a member you will be able to get to all the extra content that mere mortals cannon see. The best way to attack the site is by using the ‘Explore’ function. This brings a drop down list of places to go and things to see. You have links to the store for DVDs and toys, a link to the on demand area for new releases and older movies, and that all important offer of 30 free minutes. You can find the model index here, the various blogs and all the information about Chi Chi and her gang.

Now then, those things I just mentioned are available to everyone – apart from the free minutes at the VOD theatre. So it’s the Premium Members part of the site that you will want to check out and this is where you, as a member, will find your exclusive content. You have access here to Live and Raw and Dirk Yates Live plus the five movies which change every week. These are all arranged on easy to use pages, the design in nice and dark, giving atmosphere to the site, and everything technical works well and quickly.

You've also got a top menu that takes you over to the store and VOD area, there is a search engine, you can easily see what is most popular, the editor has selected top scenes and movies for you if you’re lost for ideas and, along the bottom of the pages, there are more links to where you can chase career opportunities, become a model and sign up for the newsletter. It’s a very well thought out and brilliantly designed members’ area, and the fact that you can ‘test drive’ it through the tour means that you will know exactly what to expect when you sign up.

Content:

So you may be thinking, what is so special about the content that you can access as a member. And that was my first thought. I mean, there is a lot here that’s free anyway, including some trailers, so why sign up? Well, trailers are ok but they’re nothing compared to the real thing; the full length movies that you have each week. There are five and they are going to feature well built, hunky, muscled and piled up studs as that’s what C1R specialise in.

You start with a box cover shot and click one to start the streaming. (There’s no downloading here.) The neat thing is that the site will, somehow, work out what is the best quality for your connection, so you don't even have to worry about that. But, if you don’t agree with what’s been selected you can change the quality to suit you. You’re going to get the full whack here, the full length DVD with non-stop hardcore and with each movie running for up to two hours, you’re going to be sitting at your monitor for a long time. But you can also jump through the DVD and select where you start from – scene markers help you work out where a scene starts and finishes.

Meanwhile, you've still got the live shows to check out. They both come with a schedule (Dayton O’Connor was appearing a few days after my visit, now that’s worth staying up for) and there are also archived shows to run too. With one of the live areas having 1,552 full length recordings and the other having 767, you’re not going to be short of sexy studs, jocks and hunks, solos and hardcore scenes to view here.

So yes, there is lots of free content that anyone can view – the blogs etc. – but there are also masses for exclusive members, so you get your value for money as well as loads of news and updates about what the company is producing.

Bonus features:

The best thing for me, in the area of extras and bonuses, was the model index. There were over 5,000 guys featured here and each one came with a thumbnail list of videos he has appeared in, simply click to go to view the movie or, in some cases, the galleries. In the video on demand area, when you click a title to see the details, you will find links to galleries that accompany the movie – where available. Like the rest of the site this is well designed, you get loads of info and models, scenes and titles are cross-linked so its easy to find your way around.

Cons and pros:

Pros:

  • Exclusive content throughout and from a great company too;
  • You have five exclusive, full length movies each week, plus two live shows to access;
  • It’s very well designed and laid out and navigation is easy. You are made to feel like you are part of something special, and you are;
  • There are some top performers in here, again exclusive to the company;
  • The site is well maintained and there were no technical problems.

Cons:

  • A couple of the galleries didn’t open when I tried to view them;
  • I couldn’t find a schedule for one of the live shows and the other one only had one show a week;
  • Sometimes the streaming movie player selected a lower quality option that I wanted, and this low quality was very low quality.
Conclusion:

To a certain extent C1R is a great big advertisement for the company and what it is producing. But in some ways this is good as true fans can keep right up to date with what Chi Chi and the gang are doing. And they are doing lots of exclusive and sizzling porn on a regular basis, live shows and club appearances. But as a member you do get something for your monthly fee: the five full length tiles each week are more than enough to justify your payments, but then you have the live shows and their huge archives, the galleries and the discounts at the DVD store. It may not sound like a lot of content but it is all top quality, totally horny and rewarding, and it updates regularly.

Featured comments:

It took me a while to get used to the navigation here but once I’d found that drop down list of links under ‘explore’ it was plain sailing. It also took me a while to work out how the videos ran, there could be a little more explanation here. But apart from that I was totally happy with the amount of content, the quality of the movies and the access to the live shows.

You can’t beet Chi Chi LaRue, she seems to be taking over the world. Finding Vance Winter’s first anal scene – he’s always been a top hasn’t he? – was a real treat but like you I couldn't find the gallery pics for this one. Maybe they are not up there yet. This is great stuff, from a big studio and you really do feel like you’re being treated to special things when you start to explore around inside.

Some of my favourite porn stars are in here and some I’d never seen before. It's a great collection, I’d like more info in the model index. I loved the blogs and the news, though it’s frustrating as I am not in the USA and can’t get to some of the events mentioned. But for quality, choice and variety you get a good deal here.
