Time Warner airs porn on kids' channels

The company’s officials had to apologise for the blunder which they attributed to “equipment failure” after airing Playboy Channel previews on the Kids on Demand and Kids Pre-School on Demand channels, reported New York Daily News.

While the programming menu listed information for children’s shows on the left side of the screen, previews of nude women in explicit conversations played on the right side of the screen. It took technicians two hours to fix the glitch and officials said they weren’t sure how many saw the mixed-up programming. The mistake affected the company’s North Carolina markets and viewers reportedly inundated the company with calls about the error.
