CHCH Morning Live’s viewers saw more than they bargained for when Friday morning's news broadcast was overtaken by a porn movie.

As the Hamilton Spectator reports, about three minutes of hard core sex scenes were aired before the CHCH stopped broadcasting.

According to tweets from CHCH, the channel was not hacked, as some early feedback from viewers suggested on Twitter. Instead, the tweets said said the channel’s broadcast was compromised by a mistake outside of its control.
