Hi @diadee 

 

The BBC's additional services have for some time now been selected by choosing a BBC TV channel on the YouView / TalkTalk TV Box, for example select channel 101, and then selecting the red button.

 

If you're looking for the 'old-style' text service then that is still there but via the BBC radio channels on the YouView / TalkTalk TV Box and selecting the red button.  e.g. select channel 704 and then press the red button.


Make the most of the red button whilst it's still active as the BBC is to switch off its Red Button teletext service from the start of next year.

 

Ceefax, the BBC’s analogue teletext service, finished in October 2012 with the switchover to digital. It was replaced by BBC Red Button, which allows viewers to read news and sports content on their TVs.

 

A BBC spokesperson said the service would be stopped in early 2020 as the broadcaster needed to channel resources into “even better internet-based services”.

 

The closure of the service marks the end of the BBC’s teletext, 45 years after it began as Ceefax in 1974.
