Comcast broadcasts porn instead of Super Bowl

Now here is a time when I wish we had the old FCC around so they could throw the book at Comcast. I could care less about the broadcast mistake but I really dislike Comcast. Between their internet business practices and the time their installation goon pushing my father (who was in a wheelchair and dying) to force him to sign the install papers – followed by their customer service team not caring – I wish Comcast all the bad luck the world has to offer. Even France Telecom service seems professional compared to Comcast.

Tucsonans watching the Super Bowl got more action than they bargained for when a short clip from an adult movie channel interrupted Comcast’s feed with full male nudity during the final moments of the game.

Officials at Comcast said about 30 seconds from Club Jenna, an adult cable television channel, were shown on the local Super Bowl telecast. The company was still working Sunday night to figure out how it happened.

Comcast had “no idea” at the time it happened how the porn may have gotten into its feed, said Kelle Maslyn, a company spokeswoman.

The Star newsroom was flooded with calls from irate viewers who said that the porn cut into the game with less than three minutes left to play, just after Arizona Cardinals player Larry Fitzgerald scored on a touchdown pass from Kurt Warner to put the team in the lead.

Callers said that the clip showed a woman unzipping a man’s pants, followed by a graphic act between the two.

“I just figured it was another commercial until I looked up,” said Cora King of Marana. “Then he did his little dance with everything hanging out.”

Jeanene Piek said she was outraged that her granddaughter had seen the clip.
“I was in a state of shock. I am totally disgusted,” she said.
