Are TV commercials really louder than the programs? Well, sometimes…

 

You can actually make complaints to the FCC.

The C-A-L-M (Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation) Act went into effect in 2012, requiring that TV commercials “have the same average volume as the programs they accompany.”

Complaints?  You will need such information as whether you were watching TV over-the-air, on cable or satellite; the name of the advertiser; time and date; name of the program; and the TV station.

“Quick Facts” list here: www.fcc.gov/media/policy/loud-commercials.

Contact info: The FCC’s Consumer Center (888) 225-5322 or write to FCC Consumer Complaints, 445 12th Street, SW, Washington, D.C. 20554.

Online complaints at www.fcc.gov/complaints.
