Porn takes over CHCH airwaves

4/20/2012

CHCH viewers got more than an eyeful this morning.

At the end of the Morning Live news broadcast, hard core gay sex scenes took over screens for about 3 minutes before the channel went dark.

CHCH which is owned by Channel Zero also operates several adult movie services.

Viewers took to twitter right away tweeting out things like "Anyone watching CHCH see what I just seen? #fail" & "Someone hacked CHCH news to play gay porn... And every TV in the gym and starbucks was set to it..."

The Hamilton-based channel also took to twitter to issue the following apology:

"CHCH apologizes to some of our cable viewers for inappropriate content that aired around 9:30 this morning.  We would like to assure all of our viewers that the content did not originate at this station, but was the result a switching error at one of the cable companies that picks up our signal. While the error was beyond the control of CHCH, we do extend our sincere apologies to our viewers."
