Hugh Hefner had changed out of his customary silk pajamas into a sleek Armani suit, a signal to associates that something special was afoot at the Playboy Mansion. His three young girlfriends gathered around him, aiming their uncommonly white smiles toward a camera set up in his living room. Hefner has a reputation for impatience at moments like these. He gets photographed nearly every day, but he's usually willing to pose for only a few minutes at a time.
Its programming focuses on premium adult programming, including motion pictures, first-run television series and specials. The channel launched on November 1, as The Playboy Channel. The original programming and style of the Playboy Channel was developed by Hugh Hefner , and producer Michael Trikilis.

At the time of its launch, programming featured on the channel consisted of R-rated films. It was broadcast for only ten hours each day, from 8 p. ET, during its first eleven years of existence.
