Ho ho ho - another Virgin EPG c**k up

From MediaGuardian:
Virgin Media's electronic programme guide began to see offence in words which otherwise would be happily broadcast on breakfast TV this weekend – Alfred Hitchcock, for example, became Alfred Hitchc**k, with a similar fate befalling BBC Radio 6 Music's Jarvis C**ker. Charles Dickens became Charles D***ens and Arsenal became A***nal. A Virgin Media spokesperson said: "Over the weekend a temporarily over-zealous profanity checker took offence at certain programme titles. The altered titles have been swiftly an*lysed and we're fixing any remaining glitches."

That's pretty funny.

I noticed this too. Channel 5 loved Hancock (Will Smith Film) but Channel 5 HD took great displeasure at it and decided to call it Hanc**k instead!

Although, without the gorgeous Charlize Theron in the film, Channel 5 HD may have been right to call it a load of c**k
