Charter Cable Gives Free Porn To The Mentally Handicapped

Consumerist Forums reader “1gunit” discovered free porn while channel surfing on his new HDTV. It began when a strange program appeared that started to automatically fast forward itself through what was some presumably boring dialogue. When the program began to play at normal speed, “1gunit” realized he was watching someone else’s “On Demand” porn. How did this happen? His letter, inside…

About a month ago i discovered that i was getting a few unlisted channels on my cable tv. I do not subscribe to “Digital Cable” I get “Extended Basic” (basically all the channels you can get with out the box) one of the 1st shows i came across was a porn and to me and my wifes surprise right after a rather interesting scene it started to fast forward to right passed all of the talking parts. It was then we realized we were watching other peoples “On Demand” shows. It varies from Blues clues to PPV movies to hot girl on girl action
This only happens on my newest tv which gets HDTV channels the Chanel’s in question are in the 107 range..107-1….107-10. I asked about it at my local charter office when paying my bill and after a lot of apologizing and assurances that I was the only one this was happening to (more on that below) they took my number and told me some one would call the next day its been 8 days still no call and I still get free porn.

I went to work the other night (At a group home for mentally handicapped people) and guess what they get the free porn as well

I’m just wondering of anyone else is getting the same thing on there HDTVs. I’m not really complaining I like free porn (even if the jerk with the remote fast forwards through the redheads)but I bet someone a little less open minded than me will freak upon discovering this.

We commend you on your strength of character because most people wouldn’t complain about free porn. For most adults this would be no problem but naturally there are others such as children who should not be able to freely receive adult programming. Since you also observed this phenomenon at work, it must mean that this situation is at least partially widespread. Because you have already reported the problem once with no relief, you should elevate this problem to someone in a higher position and see if they can help you bring a happy ending to this story.
