A Tucson television station says its broadcast of Sunday’s Super Bowl was interrupted for some customers by about 10 seconds of pornographic material.
KVOA-TV in Tucson posted a statement [added link] on its Web site late Sunday saying the only viewers who were able to see the material were those who receive the channel through Comcast cable.
KVOA says it will investigate the incident and that the game was sent out from the station without interruptions or pornographic material.
Comcast spokeswoman Tracy Baumgartner confirmed that the company’s standard feed was interrupted during the Super Bowl, although she said its high definition feed was not.
Baumgartner said engineers are investigating.
Pissed off Comcast employee? Really ballsy practical joke? Who knows, but I think it’s pretty funny. Just imagine some of conversations going on afterwards in those homes with children watching. I imagine it going something like at the end of that Lord of the Rings South Park episode.
