AT&T / closed captioning covered up

1 Tulsa, OK, United States

There is too much advertising during a broadcast making it impossible to see the closed captioning. They always put overlays at the bottom of the screen and covers the closed captioning. It interferes with trying to follow what is being said, whether it is news, or a sit-com, drama, movie or any broadcast. It is extremely frustrating to try and read the closed captioning when there is some type of advertising on top of it.
Please do not do this!!!

    Advertisements make it impossible to read Closed Captioning because they are imposed over it.
    All shows are included, news, movies, programs... all are subject to advertising lines placed over the Closed Captioning.
    It is extremely frustrating to try to read it when advertisements are imposed over it. Many times the last words are left off when an ad line covers it.
    Stop it.
