I cut cable TV off about a year ago and am saving myself $80 monthly. Of course, I spent $100 for a Roku box, $75 for a Mohu Leaf antenna and some minor monthly charges like $8 for Netflix (this is the best deal in the US for any entertainment, period). I do love Netflix. Commercials in the local live air broadcasts coming from my Mohu antenna were indeed peaking much louder than the hosted programs but have suddenly come way down to the same levels as their sponsored programs thanks to the CALM act. However, I have noticed that many commercials will spike the volume really high for one second right at the beginning. They better stop this one second volume spiking game real soon or I will be like an old grandma on my cell phone calling this FCC snitch number every day. 1-888-TELL-FCC, 1-888-225-5322.
