Israel may soon have its own home-grown erotic television channel, the Israeli daily Yediot Achronot reported Sunday. According to the paper, Playboy is in the midst of finalizing a franchising deal with an Israeli group that will include a satellite television station, an Israeli Internet site and videocassette rentals from automated machines. The paper also reported that Playboy executives have delayed the idea of a Hebrew-language edition of its magazine, fearing strong opposition from Israeli religious groups.
