About Mile High Media:

Mile High Media has been a pillar of the adult industry for over 20 years. The Canadian managed company began as a Canadian licensee for American adult movies, ensuring it distributed only the highest quality content. Understanding the diverse and ever changing needs of its consumer base, Mile High determined the best way to provide a wide array of superior entertainment was to produce its own. In 2003, Mile High launched Doghouse Digital, the first of its acclaimed lines catering to specific niches. Growing market trends and demand led Mile High to create Sweetheart Video (lesbian line), Sweet Sinner (couple line), Reality Junkies (reality gonzo line), Hardcore Parody (parody line) and Icon Male (Gay romance line). With over 2000 titles, Mile High’s studios yield some of the most viewed adult movies in the world, available on all platforms, including broadcast, IPTV, VOD and mobile applications. Mile High is committed to evolve alongside consumers tastes, reflecting new developments in technology and entertainment. This philosophy led AEBN.net to name Mile High the 2012 Studio of the Year.
