Czech public television network CT is putting a sock into vuvuzelas at Soccer World Cup games in South Africa.
“As of Monday, CT has installed an audio filter … which to a great degree reduces out the incessant drone of vuvuzelas,” it said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The filter reduces certain sound frequencies, so blocking out a large part of the vuvuzela sound.”
It said it was responding to the wishes of viewers “who in recent days have widely commented the annoying drone of vuvuzelas … so popular among South African fans.”
The plastic horns, a fixture at soccer matches in South Africa, have been widely slammed abroad for ‘spoiling the viewing experience’. — AFP
