I agree, Davethedog! I will really miss Ceefax for quick updates on weather, shares and sport in particular. The digital equivalent is much slower even when you manage to get into it - don't know if it's my TV but usually it takes at least 5 minutes for the digi channel to 'warm up' before the text option is available and then it takes several minutes to turn off and revert to the TV programme when you have finished with the text services. I have nothing against progress but this isn't progress!

It stops when your area loses analogue. Mine did last night. I liked to read the Ceefax news in bed as I 'came to' in the morning. The digital equivalent is not the same. Annoyingly the idiots' letters, er I mean readers' letters was taken off some time ago. Missed getting irate at the weird opinions too.
