Comcast customers in Colorado Spring had a perky morning wake-up this week. If they turned on everybody's favorite morning show, Good Morning America, the good-natured residents were greeted with pornography showing on KRDO Channel 13.
Comcast has "sincerely apologized" for the issue and insertion of inappropriateness and says the problem occurred when the cable company was working on a technical issue. Several different channels appeared on the ABC station in error.
On other channels, such as ION channel 26, you could have viewed religious programming for two hours. Either fortunately or unfortunately depending on who you are, the porn only showed up for a couple of seconds on channel 13's flagship morning show. "The issue was a result of human error which has been resolved," Comcast spokesperson Cindy Parsons said.
As you would imagine, customers stormed to Facebook to KRDO's fan page to flame the station for putting up those images, as if 1) KRDO would do that or 2) they had control over the matter. The station was quick to respond and said they didn't have anything to do with the technical error.
Comcast has stated that they have put practices in place to make sure this does not happen again.
