Teletext Extra information

The new Teletext Extra service – launching on Freeview soon – will be available for use on certain set top boxes from Spring/Summer. Thomson boxes and a new range of Alba/Bush set top boxes will be compatible with the new service following an over-the-air download that will be sent to those boxes (Thomson in the Spring and the new range of Alba/Bush boxes from when they go in the shops). Teletext Extra will “install” as an application on those boxes and will be a 14-day EPG TV listings service.
