Cox Comm Responds to Allegations of Volume Hyping

Here is Cox’s response to this post:

We as a cable company have no control over the television feed that specific channels send to us. We recommend that you contact your local television channels on this issue. If you need contact information for some of the cable channels, we will be more than happy to assist you.

But wouldn’t Cox have some control over how it’s commercial is presented? I want to find out, so I asked this:

Commercials advertising Cox services (cable and highspeed internet) run at a disturbingly louder volume than other commercials. Has Cox been in any communication with broadcasters who feed these commercials about this issue? It seems to me Cox would have some authority over how their commercials and their image is presented. Any insight would be of great benefit.

Check back to see how this develops.
