Teletext around the World
Teletext (Teletekst, Videotext, Ceefax (= See Facts)) consists of pages of information, such as news and sport, which are viewed on a television set capable of viewing these pages. Often Teletext contains financial information, such as the latest share prices, recipes, entertainment listings, holiday adverts, cinema.
The actual teletext pages are broadcast in a hidden part of the television signal (the Vertical Blanking Interval), and decoded by the television. Teletext pages are accessed by a 3-figure number; on most channels, the front page is on page 100. Its roots lie in the 70s. The BBC's Ceefax (not to receive over the Internet) was the world's first teletext service.
