Super Bowl game interrupted by snippets of pornographyFebruary 3rd, 2009 - 1:28 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 3 (ANI): US viewers catching the Super Bowl match on TV were given a rude shock when the game was interrupted by snippets of pornography.
The porn flick, which showed a woman performing a sex act on a man, had come on for 10 seconds during a Tucson television stations broadcast, which KVOA TV said was viewed by those who receive the channel through a cable provider.
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, the Daily Express quoted station general manager Gary Nielsen, as saying.
The station said that it was dismayed and disappointed that some customers and their families were subjected to the material, and would carry out an investigation.
KVOA will continue to investigate what happened to our clean signal and make sure our viewers get answers, it stated.
A spokeswoman for cable company Comcast confirmed that the standard feed was interrupted during the Super Bowl, but she said its high definition feed was not.
As per reports, the Tucson media received calls from irate viewers about the pornographic material, and Joel Hilander of Tucson said 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, he said. (ANI)
