Philadelphia, PA – National A-1 Internet and are pleased to announce a new partnership with Channel 1 Releasing to distribute the award-winning classic films of Catalina Video.

Channel 1 Releasing, who acquired the rights to the Catalina Video catalog in 2007, is one of the most recognized and respected names in the adult business. Since getting their hands on this historic collection of movies, C1R has been remastering and re-releasing these timeless movies much to the delight of their legion of fans.

“We love working with Channel 1 and are totally psyched to add their Catalina Video line to the site,” said’s resident blogger, Chops McGruff. “What porn fan doesn’t want to see more of Jeff Stryker or the controversial early years of industry superstar Matt Ramsey/Peter North?”

“Catalina Video simply IS the history of gay porn,” says Jason Sechrest, Director of Public Relations for “These movies create a historical arc of not only the progression of pornography in the 20th century, but also of the evolution of what is considered an ‘adonis.’ Catalina always gave us the hottest men of every year and they captured it in such a way that it is still as erotic today.”

Catalina Video was founded in 1978 by legendary director William Higgins and has been awarded a truckload of Grabby & GayVN awards over the years. Channel 1 Releasing’s co-owner & industry legend Chi Chi LaRue got started with Catalina Video in the 1980s.

Fans of the golden age of XXX can now watch Matt Ramsey in the classic feature Cousins and one of the “biggest” studs to ever satisfy greedy bottoms in action in The Best of Jeff Stryker on
