CEEFAX...RIP
« on: October 23, 2012, 10:36:12 AM »

I note that the old BBC CEEFAX service is being discontinued as from today.


CEEFAX...RIP, old fella. You did us proud.

the NZ equivalent is called teletext and i can see it will go the same way as ceefax. very slow updating news now. sometimes 2 or 3 days old before its onscreen. a real shame. it used to be a brilliant service and a lot quicker than cranking up the computer or waiting for radio/tv news.

BBC was CEEFAX, was ITV Oracle?

Is Oracle still going? ( .... as our are has gone digital, we can't get either )
