    Without commercials, how would we know what to buy?

    We're far too stupid to think for ourselves. We need a little voice in the back of our head that says, "Oh, Coca-Cola and your favorite song love eachother!"

    Sublimity is being abused, but corporations have more freedom of speech than us---because they've got all the money.

    You ask such great questions smile

    Fortunately here where I live in Sydney, Australia, we have a government funded organization known as The Australian Broadcasting Company (ABC)   It runs both television and radio stations commercial free.   Moreover, most of its programs are excellent.   I spend most of my TV viewing hours on this channel.

    As for the commercial channels...ever heard of the 'mute button' on your remote?

    The advertisers and stations have to make sure we can still hear the commercials when we are in the kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room during them. :-)

    Here's an idea for an inventor:  Most, if not all, TVs have a volume control on the remote.  Those usually work by the remote sending out infra-red signals to the TV itself.  Those signals are coded.  What is needed is an aftermarket device that also sends out infrared signals.
    That device would monitor the volume, and send out up-down adjusting signals as necessary to keep the average volume to what you have set..  As with universal remotes, you would "train" this new device with your TV remote so that it would send out the proper signals.
