Last few TVs I’ve reviewed haven’t seemed to be able to access Teletext. For good reason: it has gone. Apparently since 20 September 2009. I should have researched this earlier.
I can’t say I’m surprised. It never had a big penetration in Australia, at least until the introduction of digital TV. But by then the Internet was becoming very common in the Australian home. The tiny amount of information available on Teletext, clunkily accessed, simply couldn’t compete.
