A children’s film broadcast on French cable channel Canal + was interrupted this weekend – by a scenes from a porn film.

A few seconds of pornographic images were broadcast in the middle of the day last Sunday to viewers watching online.

The channel’s official twitter account tweeted yesterday: “Sincere apologies for Sunday’s #fail. The images were only visible on our WebTV service, lasted a few seconds, and weren’t very clear.”

Canal+ claimed a technical hitch was to blame for the incident after being questioned by the Conseil Supérieur de l'Audiovisuel, France’s television watchdog.

The company says there will be a full internal investigation to find out exactly what happened, and to ensure the incident is never repeated.
