Are Adult Channels Available On Cue Streaming?

Cue Streaming are a relative newcomer to the TV/on demand market, with a great channel selection. But one more dicey topic we do need to cover is the presence of so called adult or more “spicy” channels. Are these also featured on the service?

Adult channels are not available on Cue Streaming. As a Christian based company, they are opposed to pornography on principle and therefore do not allow this content to be streamed on their service.

In other words, if you do watch some of this content from time to time (either “hard” or “soft” content), you won’t be able to get it switching over to Cue Streaming. On the other hand, if you’ve got a young family and wouldn’t want them stumbling across this content, it’s good news, because they won’t if you switch over to Cue Streaming. They don’t allow it on their service.

Pornographic Content Is Not Allowed On Cue Streaming

“Adult” channels in the sense of containing only explicit sexual content with no other context, are not available on Cue Streaming.

This includes:

  • US adult channels like Playboy, Penthouse, Arouse, Pink TV, TEN Networks etc
  • Any “softcore” preview channels
  • Any adult PPV channels.

None of these are available on the service.

Is Adult Themed Content Still Permitted On Cue Streaming?

Let’s add a bit more precision to this article by covering the issue of not just blatantly adult (“porno”) content, but just adult themed content. In other words, films and TV shows that include adult themes such as sex, violence, drug use, bad language, and so on. Is this type of content still permitted on the service?

As far as I can tell, television and films that contain only adult themes, but are not blatantly pornographic, are still allowed on Cue Streaming. You can still watch your favourite adult orientated movies and shows on the service.

For instance, there’s a great selection of movie channels on the service, like all the Cinemax channels and the Hallmark channels, and some of the films shown on there may have adult themes and not be suitable for children. But there’s no evidence they’re censoring or blocking any of this content just because it’s only suitable for adults. Same for TV shows and series that are available.

In other words, it’s just the blatantly “adult” content in the sense of it being pornographic that’s not allowed. Pretty much anything else is fine, and as with most streaming services, there are parental controls to make sure your kids don’t see anything they’re not meant to on the service.

So What Channels Are Available On Cue Streaming?

Aside from the absence of explicit adult channels (which you could see as a good or bad thing depending on your preference!), the channel selection otherwise is excellent on Cue Streaming.

They’ve got a US channel catalogue that already runs to about 4000 channels, with all the major channels you’d expect being covered in all the main categories (television, movies, drama, entertainment, sports, PPV, kids, documentary etc).

Here’s a quick screenshot of some of the popular US channels that are offered:

The list is nowhere near exhaustive and is only the major channels. See here for their TV guide that allows you to search their catalogue to see if a channel you want is available (you can do this on a web browser without even needing to create an account).

But as a general rule, pretty much any channel you’re used to watching right now with your current provider (aside from adult channels) is highly likely to also be available on Cue Streaming.

Getting Started With Cue Streaming

If you actually like the fact that Cue Streaming doesn’t offer adult channels, along with the attractive pricing and other benefits, getting started with them is pretty easy.

Here are the general steps:

  1. If you want to watch through a TV, you’ll need a Firestick for each TV used, if you don’t already have one. They’re available cheap on Amazon. You also need a live internet service/connection.
  2. Go to the Cue Streaming website
  3. Click Sign Up and fill in your details
  4. Pay your subscription ($59.99/month, 5 devices per account, no contract, no set up fees, cancel anytime).
  5. Run through some easy initial setup depending on your device (TVs are a bit more complicated)
  6. You’re good to go, watching most or all of the channels you currently watch, without any of the explicit adult content.
