Rugby fans get an eyeful

The action was hot and heavy but it wasn't on the field.

Rugby fans in New Zealand got an eyeful yesterday.

Instead of rugby highlights on a midday sportscast, viewers saw four minutes of hardcore porn.

A spokesman for Prime Television blames a mix-up in the distribution process.

The X-rated segment had been intended for an adult pay-per-view channel.

Rival TV channels report some viewers were "shocked and disgusted" by the error. Prime TV is apologizing.
