Comcast Broadcasts Porn During Super Bowl

Well, either this story will make you laugh or cringe (or both).

According to the Arizona Daily Star, Tucson-area cable TV broadcasted porn during the Super Bowl:

A short clip of a pornographic movie cut into a Comcast broadcast of the Super Bowl in homes in and around Tucson. Officials at Comcast confirmed that its signal was interrupted during the Super Bowl, but the company is still working to figure out how porn broke into its cable feed. Engineers at Comcast will be working throughout the night to determine what happened, said Kelle Maslyn, a Comcast spokeswoman.

Well, this would certainly top the infamous Janet Jackson / Justin Timberlake flash from a few years back. I suppose that it could have been worse, too (imagine if the interruption had been a full-on Rick Roll).

This report also states that Comcast’s digital feed was untouched – only the analog / standard TV signal was affected. Let this be a lesson to you laggards: UPGRADE TO DIGITAL, ALREADY.

Obviously, Comcast will have to answer a very important question: how the heck did this happen?! They’ve been accused of traffic shaping, but now they’re going to be accused of broadcasting immorality? Well, traffic shaping IS immoral…

Anyway, I’m sure the amount of complaints were equal: 50% complained that it happened, and 50% complained that they didn’t show enough. Mitch Wagner from Information Week wrote more on the subject.

  1. Anyone thinking of the scene in Fight Club where Tyler splices pieces of a porno into a family flick?

    Clearly this is the work of some agents of chaos.

  2. Now I’m pissed off that I no longer have Comcast. Seriously though, how the fuck did this happen? I’m sure there was not at all a chance of it being an employee at the broadcasting station that did it. *sarcasm*

  3. If it was only the analog signal then chances are it was a good old fashioned pirate signal (e.g. The Max Headroom pirate signal in the 80’s), and not Comcrap. Better give me a copy of the video so I can analyze it….

  4. All I have to say is who cars im 14 and it does not tick me off. everyone is going to see porn at one point in there life Ohh its porn lets freek out about it, All were we were ment to do is to make babies thats all, but we learned how to stand so we have made tooles and such and maked our lives better, People its just other beople having sex OMFG

  5. I dont recall seeing any porn.And i wasn’t watching from my tv with Comcast Digital box.I was watching the game from my regular cable TV.Now i’am confused.Dont digital feed comes through regular tv,even without a set top box?Meaning the basic cable.

  6. For me, and everyone I know at Comcast, it is cringe! We are mortified by last evening’s Super Bowl interruption, and deeply apologize to our customers for the inappropriate programming. We are aggressively investigating the situation including the possibility of foul play.

    Thank you!

  7. Actually, they’re lying about it was “only analog” – I subscribe to Comcast Digital Cable and saw the porn spot in all its glory. Sounds like they’re trying to downplay the scope.

  8. This is terrible. But the fact that a lot of the commercials are very close to being porn is just as bad.

  9. Yeah, Dave. I remember hearing about something like this happening with Cartoon Network about a decade ago. Not to mention, it was on a snow day, so all the kids were home when it happened.

  10. Hahaha! I remember a few years ago I was showing my mom the “Ghost Rider” trailer on the ondemand feature, all of a sudden some dude is plowing a woman from behind.

    Good times Good times

  11. I believe that is why America is in the state that she is. And when she fall, what a great fall it will be. Then people will be calling out for God t o save them. We need to be calling out now before it is too late. End this filth stuck up wih no shame or remorse into the face of God. And then to do the porn in front of innocent children like wicked demons. These people need Jesus and dliverance!

  12. Wow, super epic pwn for that moment. I can’t believe that the signal got interrupted. That guy is gonna get his chops busted for that!

    Thank you!!

  14. Response to jo: stop spewing your christian bullshit. Its really annoying. You brought up something totally unrelated. BITE ME JO!!

  15. wierd…… Because I have comcast and I watched the whole game and it didnt have any porn in it so i believe this topic is false and not true.

  16. America is in this state because a couple of seconds of dick-wagging were broadcast during the broadcast of a sporting event? This event was just a few days ago. Funny…I didn’t hear the thunderous boom of civilization collapsing this past Sunday. Has someone posted some video footage of it on YouTube?

    Here’s a tip: drag your holier-than-thou ass out of the fundamentalist church you attend, and spend some time with real people. You will soon see that porn has much more negative impact on you than those who watch it religiously. (Yes, the pun was intended.)

    The thing is, you constantly judge everyone around you, deeming yourself more apt to look upon the face of the Christian god, but the rest of us understand the obvious: you just need a good dicking. (Homage to Kevin Smith!)

  17. Jake,

    Imagine that, a 14 year old boy wonders why anyone would care about pornography being broadcast during the Super Bowl. I’m no prude and I find it funny, but really, son, you need to just shut up. Also, if you’re 14 and that’s the way you write, I weep for you, your parents, your school district, and the future of society. Christ Almighty, put down the internet and pick up a book.
