When last I was in England, our hotel television had a 'text’feature which had news and info on a ASCII-like screen on the TV. Why don’t we have this technology in the US?
I realize it’s old and not of much use now, what with the internet and all, but why wasn’t it here ever?
Does this have anything to do with the ‘Response’ button that used to be on my cable box (In Cincinnati, Warner Cable had big brown boxes + little settops with wired remotes - ancient technology, I assume)
And while sometimes I can get captioning with the setting Caption CH1 on my TV, what is CH2 for? How about the text feature? (Text CH1, Text CH2) Is that related to the above mentioned technology? Thanks in advance for your replies and any other questions you may need to ask, E-mail me:
