Accessing Teletext

  1. Why am I not able to view Teletext using my set-top box?
    Teletext is only supported via the composite output. Both the set-top boxes and TVs do not support Teletext via component or HDMI.

  2. How can I view Teletext
    You would need to use a coaxial cable, connect one end of the cable to ‘TV Out’ on the set-top box and the other end to the TV RF interface. Once connected, change the TV input to TV and tune to any of the 3 free-to-air channels to access Teletext.

    Alternatively, you can select the composite video output using your TV remote control and tune to any of the 3 free-to-air channels to access Teletext. To ensure that your cable TV viewing is not disrupted, please be reminded to switch the TV input back to HDMI after your Teletext usage.

Teletext has ceased operation since 30 September 2013.
