The new interactive dating & chat service from Teletext – ‘Rabbit’ – has launched on Freeview channel 102. The channel used to be home to Teletext Cars but was renamed to ‘Rabbit’ on the EPG recently. The ‘Rabbit’ service has now launched. The service enables viewers to text in and get their messages put on-screen and also allows them to send in pictures of themselves & have them displayed on the channel. ‘Rabbit’ is very much like one of those Sky dating channels. It’s all done using MHEG technology so it’s quite impressive what features it has when you think it’s only an MHEG application.
Teletext Cars – the interactive service from Teletext – has been removed and replaced with a placeholder message for the new interactive dating service ‘Rabbit’ on channel 102. ‘Rabbit’ is thought to be launching this month. Teletext Cars had been dormant on Freeview for a while.
