I want Ceefax / Teletext back!

Found 3rd Feb 2010
I've had no Ceefax / Teletext available on my tv for the last month. Just been told it's been switched off in my area. I'm gutted as I used to love a good read on there. I used to enjoy watching the footy and cricket scores refresh aswell.

Wish they'd bring it back.

Anyway, the switchover isn't due until 2011 in my area as I wanted to get a freeview box for the bedroom. Does this mean that analogue has been completely switched off in my area and I can now receive digital?


is ceefax not a bit 1980's lol..

Teletext sucks.

lmao, what a blast from the past that is!

I have told this story before but years ago me and a friend both came back from separate holidays on a sat and went out that night, messy end to evening and I woke up in the hallway, friend on the floor in the living room, teletext on the tv and ours purses open on the floor. Skip forward a few hours and a phone call from a woman to say that as we had booked our holiday with so little notice they would be unable to post our tickets and we were to pick them up at the desk at check in, which was Monday morning at 7am!!! I will miss teletext :cry::cry:
