Now what's going to wake me up when I fall asleep on the couch? Just joking. I like this law. I'm going to report those noisy ads to the FCC.
It probably took this long because most of the people with influence (read:money) own TV sound systems that adjust the volume automatically.
These are the laws we're fussing with instead of "fiscal cliff" issues. Nice. Remember when we had to get up off the couch to turn the channel or adjust the volume? Maybe if they passed a law outlawing remote controls, the nation would lose some weight, or watch less TV, then we wouldn't have to worry about slightly louder audio during commercials...
with DVR's, who watches commercials anyway???
I guess political ads will be exempt.
Thanks Ms Eschoo!! It's about time!!!
Yes, thanks Anna, I can now sleep comfortably in front of the tv. Woo hoooo
PS, should of been done a long time ago.
It would be great if we had a law to ration the amount of politcal ads
on tv, and the radio.
It's comforting to know that all the other, pressing issues have been handled, and now we can move on to the silly ones.
Does this apply to cable too? Or just broadcast TV.
