Teletext

Teletext as we used to know it largely a thing of the past. There are Text holiday pages on Freeview. The original Teletext and Ceefax services which used to go with free to air TV are being discontinued. The BBC text service, which is very limited in content, is accessible by the red button on Virgin boxes.

This is true, but it's not as comprehensive as the old telext and ceefax systems that went with analogue TV which I suspect the oS was after. You used to get racing results,local cinema times and all sorts of diverse stuff. Guess people get this off the internet now.
