Parents Television Council Praises HBO for Decision to Stop Showing Porn

The family entertainment watchdog group Parents Television Council is lauding HBO for its decision to quit showing erotic movies.

HBO has recently removed its adult entertainment movies and television programs from both its channels and streaming services, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Programs no longer available include the reality TV series “Taxicab Confessions,” documentaries like “Real Sex,” and specials featuring adult film star Katie Morgan.

“Over the past several years HBO has been winding down its late-night adult fare,” a spokesperson for HBO told the Times.

“While we’re greatly ramping up our other original program offerings, there hasn’t been a strong demand for this kind of adult programming, perhaps because it’s easily available elsewhere.”

PTC President Tim Winter commended HBO and its corporate parent AT&T for the decision in a statement released Wednesday, calling it “a wise decision.”

Winter said he also wants to see AT&T take the additional step of removing X-rated pornographic content from DirecTV.
