DVD swapping site takes a stand over 18+ movies
Hitflip adds age verification for over 18 content
By: Custard PR
Unlike other media swapping sites, Hitflip allows users younger than 18 to join its web site. With a large number of teenagers using the internet as a primary source of information, communication and content, the company sees a younger generation as its core user base.
“Teenage internet users should not be discriminated against. We want to give them a chance to have fun swapping DVDs and managing their own personal accounts,” says Adam Finlayson, UK General Manager, Hitflip. “At the same time, their parents may rest assured that their children are protected from inappropriate content.”
More than 2,500 over 18 certificate horror and action films are currently listed on Hitflip.co.uk, along 1,000 adult DVDs. Hitflip is the first UK web site to offer over 18 adult movies to UK residents.
Joining Hitflip is easy and takes less than 30 seconds. There is no subscription required and users pay only 79p per transfer, which protects them against fraud and damaged media. In addition, there is an initial one-off fee of £5 to allow appropriate age verification.
