Viewers tuning in to watch Tuesday's evening news broadcast on Greece's state-owned public TV station ET3 were surprised to see a bit more softcore porn than usual in between reports on the country's latest unrest.

That is to say, any softcore porn at all.

While the staid anchor went on about the news of the day, a graphic sex scene was clearly unfolding in one of the screens behind him.

Commenters from the region who witnessed the "breaking news" firsthand reported that, rather than accidentally allowing a pornographic film on the air, ET3 unwittingly highlighted an erotic movie that was being shown on its sister channel ET1 at the same time.
