Does $1 US dollar = 1 UK Pound still at VideoBox?

I love VideoBox, but was stunned when renewing earlier this year to be charged 'Pounds for Dollars', with no alternative currency options at all. That's a 60% price hike for UK subscribers. Shocking.

Does anyone know if VideoBox are still playing this evil trick?

Relations between the U.S. and the UK have been rocky off and on ever since the War of Independence (1776). But even your fellow European porn sites will charge you in Euros when they can get away with it. Porn operators will normally show no mercy to their customers. That's the law of the Porn Jungle! Eat or be eaten (better when you have a female partner with you).

user2000 (0) I do remember from my history lessons a certain 'bit of bother' concerning a Tea Party, or something, but this does seem like a high price to pay for a 200+ year old tax dispute. We UK customers are supposed to have a special relationship, we keep being told by our politicians, with our transatlantic cousins.

I could understand an inflated pricing structure for say, North Korea, but I think that right now the UK should be getting a Platinum Plus discount, not getting treated worse than some of the porn stars!

To date any site which has tried to charge me more for being British or European has not recieved my business, trouble is more and more seem to be jumping on that band wagon. It's bad enough as it is with the low exchange rate. Couple of years ago when it was two dollars to the pound i didn't think twice about joining a $30 site...now i try to keep it under $20 if i can or look for the special offers.

You can do a "special" or "advanced" search at The Best Porn (the sister site of PU), and search by cost for sites.

Can also search by "special offers" and a lot of other factors, if you want to add those to the search.

It's a great shame that a site like VideoBox, which outwardly offers a straightforward service, lacking the tricks, scams & spam of certain other porn sites, let itself down at the last hurdle like this.

There is simply no acceptable reason not to let subscribers pay in US dollars along with all the rest of the US customers, and let the conversion rate be settled between the customer and their card company. I think the site managers of VB might like to reflect on how the wider world views these stunts.
