Millions of watchers tuned into the Super Bowl yesterday to watch the game and check out the famous commercials and half time show. Some viewers in Tucson, Arizona who were watching the game on Comcast cable's SD feed saw a bit more than they had wanted to see.

According to the local NBC affiliate in the area, the SD signal was hacked and a ten-second porn clip was inserted into the feed. The station received hoards of complaints from families who were watching the game and saw the clip.

The network says that the signal watched by viewers over the air and by those on HD feeds was not interrupted. Engineers with the network are investigating to see what happened. The porn clip was reportedly inserted right after The Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald scored on a long touchdown reception.

Via Fox Sports. Update: The Super Bowl Porn glitch made it onto Youtube. The TV viewers in Tucson did not get treated to a great porn, bad luck. Update: Comcast responses to Porn Glitch.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
