    With more and more people relying entirely on a sat feed for television, I wonder if the powers that be will ever get text working via that mode ?
    Technically everything is in place but of course it does use bandwidth,,, and bandwidth can be sold to channel programmers so no profit in it for Sky.

    Orrr. am I wrong and text can be got via your Sky box ?

    Are we talking the old fashioned teletext John?

    I use the Red Button under Sky and the BBC on the satellite all the time especially when abroad, seems to me it's the same as Teletext with pictures.
