Teletext (or TOP text) is an optional function,
therefore only a set with the teletext system can
receive the teletext broadcast.

Teletext is a free service broadcast by most TV
stations which gives up-to-the-minute information
on news, weather, television programmes, share
prices and many other topics.

The teletext decoder of this TV can support the
SIMPLE, TOP and FASTEXT systems. SIMPLE
(standard teletext) consists of a number of pages
which are selected by directly entering the corre-

more modern methods allowing quick and easy
selection of teletext information.
