TV Station Airs Porn Instead of ‘Good Morning America’

[Updated Monday, April 16, 2012, 2:50 p.m., to add news that Comcast took the blame for the mistake.]

Viewers tuning in for ABC’s “Good Morning America” instead got a glimpse of some hard-core porn last week on one local station, the New York Daily News reports.

The glitch happened Thursday morning on the Comcast feed for Colorado station KRDO-TV, where a few seconds of porn accidentally aired instead of the network’s morning show, the story says.

The programming was shown in Colorado Springs and Pueblo, Colo., the report says, noting that it was quickly replaced by religious programming while work was under way to fix the glitch.

Early versions of the story inaccurately attributed the mistake to the station, but the Daily News later updated its report to say the problem originated with Comcast, the cable company that distributes KRDO programming to its subscribers.

  1. Very ironic that they had religious programming standing by in the event that porn was broadcast instead…Rick Santorum would be proud. Why couldn’t they simply switch right back to the network feed?

  2. There is no network feed at that point.
    In the Mountain time zone, all network programming is recorded from the Eastern/Central network feed for playback later.
    Typically feeds are only provided for Eastern and Pacific.
