Ceefax, the world’s first Teletext service, will deliver its last page to the UK on October 24th
Before the rise of 24-hour networks and readily accessible internet access, bored television viewers in the UK seeking entertainment at 3AM would have to make do with Ceefax. The service was originally designed to offer subtitles on programs for the deaf and hard of hearing, but morphed over the decades into a fully fledged information service.
