Pros: Victoria Sinclair
Unique format
Real, daily news
Choice of video resolutions
High resolution images (up to 4288×2848px)
272 free Mr Skin videos (up to 640×360, 15fps, Windows Media)
Cons: "The best quality VIDEO on the Internet" a downright lie

Poor video resolution and frame rates as follows:
- H.264, 512×384px, 29.970fps, ~600Kbps
- QuickTime "Premium Video", 512×384px, 14.814fps, ~420Kbps
- QuickTime "Low Broadband", 384×288px, 14.811fps, ~300Kbps
- QuickTime "Dialup", 384×288px, 14.811fps, ~300Kbps
- "iPod Video", 320×240px, 29.970fps, ~330Kbps

"Low Broadband" and "Dialup" video files the same
Images in individual ZIP files, one ZIP per image
"Nothing to hide", yet anchor photographs are non-nude only
Anchor photographs are rarely updated
Site navigation and layout
Bottom Line: When Naked News made its début back in 2000, streaming and downloading video via the Internet was in its infancy. That and anchor Victoria Sinclair, who really could be a mainstream newsreader, primarily contributing to the site's success.

Sinclair ticks all the right boxes as many men's ultimate fantasy figure and seeing her strip naked during a broadcast while managing to retain the air of a consummate professional, must be why the site still attracts new members.

The appeal of the show's lesser anchors varies in accordance to their appearance. Many anchors have been surgically enhanced and while some results have been fairly successful (Whitney St. John) Michelle Pantoliano, for example, has that extreme two-melons-on-a-broom-handle look. Some are genuinely beautiful (former anchor Lisa Benton) while there are those to which mother nature wasn't so kind (Sandrine Renard and Christine Kerr). Once naked, all are either completely shaven or have a tiny landing strip in the French style so if you're a fan of more natural or hairy women, look elsewhere.

Each day's show is broken up into segments or can be downloaded (or streamed) all in one go. Many segments only feature full nudity, with stripping reserved for the main news and certain anchors, usually Sinclair or Roxanne West, who start in typical business attire with classy, lacy underwear.

Unfortunately, while Victoria Sinclair's star still shines bright, the website itself has not moved with the times. Navigation is awkward and most content loads in a frame "below the fold", meaning constant scrolling and erratic "back" button behaviour. Particularly frustrating are the anchor and "Hot Model" images which, although of exceptionally high resolution are only available to download within individual ZIP files. Yes, one JPEG image per ZIP, how stupid is that?

Most of the anchor photographs haven't been updated in many years, and it's also annoying to find that none of them reveal anything in their photos, not even a nipple let alone any pink bits. If they're happy to appear nude in video, why not in photos?

There is a gallery of "Hot Models" (by my count ~1,670 photos) where naked breasts can be found, but full nudity is still extremely rare.

As for the quality of the video itself, it simply doesn't stack up to modern day standards. None of the download or streaming options reach SD resolution, let alone the "Ultra High Quality" promised. In this regard, the site is both disappointing and wholly misleading. The only videos at 30fps are the H.264, and for some unfathomable reason they're only available for the past two days.

While Naked News was on the forefront ten years ago, in 2010 the site looks old-fashioned and amateurish, with the video quality and presentation style both in need of a radical overhaul. It is worth subscribing for a short period just to admire Victoria Sinclair's style, but otherwise the site represents poor value and little to interest connoisseurs of the female form.

messmer (137) I like your review and agree with the points you made. As a matter of fact, as I have stated previously, I really don't know why this site is listed under Porn. It was an outrageous idea at the time to do the news nude, it does contain nudity, but it isn't Porn.
