Digital teletext - audio

Digital set top boxes allow for listening to radio via television. Aside from being 'crystal clear' audio quality, these have their own accompanying text services. Most are pretty limited and only exist to fill blank space (such as Talksport's, below left), but others such as the one for BBC Radio 5 Live (above) are more extensive. In fact, the latter is linked with the BBC's interactive service to provide news and programme details.
