Station Says Porn Clip Interrupted Super Bowl
Monday, February 02, 2009 


Print ShareThisPHOENIX    A Tucson television station's broadcast of the Super Bowl on Sunday was interrupted for some viewers by about 10 seconds of pornographic material, the station said.

KVOA TV in Tucson released a statement saying that the only viewers who were able to see the material were those who receive the channel through Comcast cable.

The station said it will investigate the incident.

"When the NBC feed of the Super Bowl was transmitted from KVOA to local cable providers and through over-the-air antennas, there was no pornographic material," KVOA president and general manager Gary Nielsen said in a statement.

The KVOA statement said the station was dismayed and disappointed that some Comcast customers and their families were subjected to the material.

"KVOA will continue to investigate what happened to our clean signal and make sure our viewers get answers," Nielsen said in the statement.

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 were investigating Sunday night.

Tucson media outlets reported that they received calls from irate viewers about the pornographic material.

A spokesman for Cox Cable said the company had not been affected.

"We have received no evidence that any inappropriate material was broadcast on any of our channels during the Super Bowl," Mike Dunne said. "The alleged incident appears to be isolated to the Comcast territory. We will offer our support to all appropriate organizations to help them determine what happened."

Joel Hilander of Tucson told The Associated Press that he and his young children saw the clip.

"I couldn't believe it. And I couldn't believe that my children were watching it either," Hilander said.

He said the interruption came just after the Arizona Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald scored on a long touchdown reception during the final minutes of the game.

:rofl: .....and now the cable company responsible for it is offering a $10.00 credit for any subscribers who saw it.   I don't know what's funnier,  getting paid to watch porn or the fact that they think it will only take $10.00 to buy off their customers.
YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE
AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU HAVE AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.

tyler didnt sleep much and because of this worked many different part time jobs, one of these jobs was at the theater, why would you work in the theater you may ask? because it affords opportunities, like splicing a single frame from a porno into childrens film...

Remember those 3D commercials they played?

At the end there was a chick crawling towards the front of the screen (can't remember what it was for)

I swear to God her boob was hanging out!

Flashback of the "wardrobe malfunction"?

Don't sweat it...the actress understands the uproar! I didn't see it...I didn't watch, besides I have Cox cable (ironic name...considering the subject).

I work for the affiliated cable company that's having to deal with this right now...

It's under investigation.... It is leaning twords an employee prank that may lead to someone standing at the LONG unemployment line.

We're actually dealing with similar issues in our area. If you have a newer television with a built in digital tuner it will pick up digital stations 80, 80-1, 80-2 all the way up to 80-9   this is the same freq. that VOD (video on demand) runs on... if anyone in your node orders porn off VOD while your watching those channels you may get more then you bargained for.

Interesting - I was thinking maybe an EX employee did this or something.  Prank sounds logical too, though.

Nah, suprisingly we're still hiring... not laying off.

With the introduction to our digital voice service we've got ton's of work.
