Lost BBC text on tv
« on: Tuesday 24 November 20 11:47 GMT (UK) »
Samsung tv, bought May2017.  Noticed a couple of days ago that the text facility is now "not available".

We did have a very brief loss of power a few days ago;  could that have affected the tv?  I've not seen any details in the press about the text facility being unavailable.   :-\

It's just a basic freeview set, not signed up to anything like Sky etc.

There was a message on the BBC Text in late October/early November that the text facility was being shut on 16th November.   When I go into text and pick a section, it directs me to the iPlayer now.
