When some of were kids we all had that cable box where you could turn on the channel that Playboy was on and see a disorted image and often times hear the soundtrack.
A couple times I saw the movies disortion free. ;)
What were the usual films Playboy used to show back in the mid 1980s?

mostly R rated (or single X) versions of porns, like EXPOSED, FILTHY RICH, NOTHING TO HIDE, TALK DIRTY TO ME, GLITTER, TRINITY BROWN, CANDY GOES TO HOLLYWOOD, RANDY THE ELECTRIC LADY, V THE HOT ONE, INSASIABLE, UP AND COMING, and they wewre all interesting as they had sex scenes and dialogues that were not in the hard core versions.
and around 1985, they played art films to rare studio cult classics, like EL TOPO, HOLY MOUNTAIN, BAD TIMING, INVITATION AU VOYAGE, LA GRAND BOUFFE, LA BALANCE, ALFREDO ALFREDO, PANDORA'S BOX, DEALING, LAST OF THE MOBILE HOT SHOTS, THE DEVILS, TROPIC OF CANCER, which lead to many subscribers canceling the channel!
Then they played some B sex movies like CANDY STRIPE NURSES, NEST OF VIPERS, CONVENTION GIRLS,SECRETS, ITALIAN STALLION, VAN NUYS BLVD, FRENCH QUARTERS, THE RITZ, DAGMAR;S HOT PANTS, HAPPY HOOKER films, BECAUSE OF THE CATS, SEX THIEF, DEATH GAMES, INCOMING FRESHMAN, CHERRY HILL HIGH,GAS PUMP GIRLS, HOT T-SHIRTS, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, BELL AMIN, and even THE EXTERMINATOR!!!!
I actually subscribed to this channel, I certianly had trouble trying to explain to my high school film class guys about the beauty of EL TOPO, as they were too busy thinking PRIVATE LESSONS was the it movie that time!

Wasn't the movie "Preppies" a Playboy Channel Production?
It's on a UK R2 Budget DVD (I picked it up for about $5.00). It's basically Animal House filtered through Skinemax.

Actually Playboy got into the cable biz when they purchased the "Escapade" cable service about 1980. I never had access to that service, but a friend used to rave that it showed Brit "naughty bits" movies.

ON TV also showed similar stuff at the time, what shysters THEY were!

Escapde used to run basically the same films Showtime ran in those days, when they had the "after hours" presentation, like THE HEIST, CLEOPATRA JONES AND THE CASINO OF GOLD, NOCTURNA, EXTERMINATOR, SEVEN, TRACKDOWN, PRIME CUT, SWEET SUGAR, and those Cannon sex films of course

They also showed German titty flicks including at least one of the Schwedinnen movies, called "Three Swedish Girls in Hamburg" in its dubbed PB Channel English version (and sometimes known as "Nympho Girls.")
