CNN, the American TV news channel reportedly interrupted their regular programming to bring viewers 30 minutes of adult film.
CNN was supposed to show travel and food show Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown, but people got something entirely different.
A woman who tweeted a photo of an explicit image appearing to be on CNN said the sordid show went on for at least half an hour.
And a CNN spokesperson said: 'The RCN cable operator in Boston aired inappropriate content for 30 minutes on CNN last night. CNN has asked for an explanation.'
It is unclear how the mistake happened and how many households were affected.
