Freeview porn appears on Tesco TV screens


March 23, 2009

Customers in the Bursledon Tesco branch near Southampton in Hampshire, were treated to a quick glimpse of Freeview porn the other day, as all of the twenty TV sets displayed in the 24 Hour store switched channels to an adult channel.

The channel turned out to be pornographic film, which appeared on the screens for anything from seconds to minutes, depending on who is asked about the event.

A spokesperson from Tesco said that the film only appeared for a matter of seconds rather than minutes, but some customers say that it was minutes rather than seconds.

The event has been put down to a practical joke played by a customer who somehow managed to switch the channel feed over to this porn broadcasting channel, whatever that one is.

    How could a customer change the feed ? More like member of staff..if this had happened in America Tesco would have been sued by customers claiming all kinds of distress…………thank god we don’t live in the states !

    It was minutes and it wasn’t switched over by a customer because I was there along with my girlfriend and one other customer.

    The next day, I asked on a forum describing the explicit scene and someone recognised it as coming from an art house film called Red Road as they’d written about it for their thesis.

    Sure enough, after quick search of the previous night’s schedule, I found the film on the BBC HD channel; the ideal choice if you want to display the real-life capabilities of your latest HD model TVs (although Tesco appear to have stopped doing that now for some reason).

    The sex scenes were graphic enough for some Cannes critics to think they were genuinely at it, so you can understand why I thought it was a porno.

    And yes, almost two and a half years later, I still google my own 15 minutes of fame.
