Did you feel any CALMer Thursday? It was the 1st of the CALM Act, which requires MVPDs and broadcasters to keep commercials from blaring louder than programming. CALM’s enactment got plenty of national attention with the law’s original author Anna Eshoo (D-CA) saying it has been a top consumer complaint at the FCC for decades. "It was a simple 1-page bill. I never dreamed it would strike the chord it did with the American people," she said at a news conference Thurs. Consumers can file complaints at www.fcc.gov/complaints. Over at NCTA’s blog CableTechTalk.com, a post explains what the CALM Act is and how it works. "Because it is complex, I won’t doubt that there will be bumps along the way," said NCTA chief Michael Powell said at the morning news conference. "But I pledge this: we will stay committed and focused to continually live up to the law and to ensure that experience remains a quality one."
