Wouldn’t it be nice if Comcast, which just received a huge tax deduction, and is giving each of its employees $1000 bounus; gave its paying customers a Christmas present, and lowered the volume on commercials.  After all, it is the law that commercials not be louder than the show, and we are paying for the privilege to see commercials.

 

Come on Comcast, step up and do what’s right!

Re: loud commercials

what I've noticed is that they've lowered the volume of the main show in the last year or so, which requires you to raise the volume to hear the show, and thus makes the commercials super loud. I bet this was done to get around the law that commercials must be low volume.

Honestly this is one of the major reasons I’m thinking about getting rid of Comcast. The only redeeming feature has been xfinity stream, but the commercials are so loud that I can’t watch it comfortably.

I agree. It is incredabiliy sad that the commercials are 3 times as loud as the shows. Getting very tired of this issue.
