At some point everyone has had to deal with a television program getting interrupted. For one mother and her three children, she had more than just your casual signal loss.
As reported on KFSM News, a parent in North Carolina got more than a shock after realizing that her children were watching porn instead of a Disney Movie.
Brown had recorded a movie, Lilo and Stitch, on the “Disney Channel” on Dish Network for her three children, a son almost 2, a 3-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son. While Brown did house work in the next room, three days later after the recording had been made, she switched on the recording for her children to watch. Brown said, she was in her kitchen working when she realized what she was hearing was not what she had put on for her children to watch.
“I just heard things that probably shouldn’t be on Lilo or Stitch,” she said. “My first thought was the children have changed the channel.”
It was later discovered that about a minute into the recording, an alert box appeared, stating “part of the recorded event has been lost due to signal loss, the picture pixilated and video of a man and woman having sex appeared. The video continued for six minutes before another signal-loss message popped onto the screen and the Disney movie reappeared.
“If you can imagine Maggie Simpson sitting on a sofa watching porn that was him just sitting there sucking his pacifier kind of clueless,” Brown said of her youngest child’s reaction. “My 5-year-old grabbed his ears and ran out of the room screaming, ‘I didn’t do it,’ and the 3-year-old was sitting there crying.”
David Guttey, a contractor for Dish Network, looked at Brown’s receiver.
“I’ve been in the TV industry for 15 years and I’ve never once seen that,” Guttey said.
Brown waits for answers as Dish Network, issued this statement:
“We have technology in place to help ensure we deliver the content that subscribers want to watch. We are working with various partners and our customers to better understand what occurred.”
