Last week I was given some used blank tapes (S-VHS) with the idea that I would re-use the tapes for my own interests. On looking at one it was 'Tina Turner day' from November 1999 on VH1. My TV displayed the text from the original broadcast and I could look up the charts, competitions and TV listings. Since I have never recieved VH1 it left me wondering - how was this 'teletext' distrubuted? Was it on satelite or cable? Is it still used or did it finish? It was odd to see the old blocky style TV text again but interesting. Thanks for any help.
