  Could the sounds of the vuvuzela be gone from BBC telecasts soon?


Enjoying the World Cup games? Well some people are not apparently as the BBC has received over 545 complaints about their telecasts due to the loud horns called vuvuzelas blaring constantly throughout the matches.


The BBC has been playing around with the idea of filtering out the crowd noise from its World Cup broadcasts after hundreds of people called and emailed the station demanding an end to vuvuzela sounds. Many feel it takes away from the games and even drowns out the cheers and chants from the thousands in attendance.


In a statement the television station said, "We have already taken steps to minimize the noise and are continuing to monitor the situation. If the vuvuzela continues to impact on audience enjoyment, we will look at what other options we can take to reduce the volume further."


So how would BBC drown out the blaring horns during matches? Well the station is considering adding a "red button"to their digital service which would mute the annoyance while maintaining the game's commentary. Viewers would simply push the button and they would be switched to a quieter station.


FIFA shot back Monday stating that the vuvuzela will not be banned from the games and will continue to be sold at events.
