Teletext & Ceefax

Ask a Question

Does anyone still use it?

Did you ever book holidays on it?

I know ceefax stopped in 2012

I remember using it for sport and lottery and BAMBOOZLE!

The time I wasted on Bamboozle!

I remember using it to check the football results, and then missing your page and having to wait for it to roll round again.

I remember when TV's came with teletext and they were promoted as advanced technology. I also used to have a spectrum computer with a prism VTX5000 modem which had similar graphics but you were online so had interactive services. No doubt in the future when people connect via VR headsets and interact with their family who can be across the world yet appear to be in the same room we will look back at today as if it was some sort of flintstone era.

Bamboozle! wow, that's a blast from the past. used to read the pop music pages on there. I really liked it. I thought it all stopped years ago. I remember my dad looking at holiday prices on it but I don't know if booked holidays through it.

Lol BAMBOOZLE! Now that’s a blast from my past. Can’t believe how patient we used to be - I can’t even wait 3 seconds for a website to load nowadays
