Remember the Arizona basketball fan who figured out a way to alter a restaurant’s TV package so he could watch the Pac-12 Network? That was wild, but now we have word out of the U.K. that a soccer fan figured out a way to get a webcam website onto the TVs at a stadium bar. Ever heard of Babestation? Well, that’s what appeared on the TVs during halftime of a match between Bristol and Crawley.
Of course the fun U.K. media is all over this story, including the BBC who last night ran a full report.
The footage of scantily-clad women disappeared only to reappear as the game resumed. Bristol Rovers said an investigation was under way.
The X-rated channel invites viewers to interact live with female presenters wearing just underwear via a premium-rate telephone number or text messaging. Fans who were in the newly-refurbished bar tweeted their amusement.
Rival club Bristol City also got in on the act, tweeting about their own screens “We can’t promise any Babestation, sorry. Our TVs have parental control.”
The team says they put in a new TV system and it appears that it has been hacked. Well, of course it was. Looks to me like the team found a new sponsor. Every guy in town would be in there drinking at halftime.
