Bbc Teletext To Be Switched Off

I don't think any TV manufacturer will be interested in monitoring or spying on what content is viewed via the smart television in our household. 

Then I can only conclude you don't understand why they do it.

I and my family use it daily. We are all deaf and this is our best way of keeping up with news, local and national and also weather and , to a lesser degree, sports news.

We don't have to trawl around and we don't have to wait - it is there 24/7 on demand and the best service we could ask for.

This is all about saving money which is disgusting when we see how much they are paying some presenters and those at the top.

The 24 hour news channel is already laughable with a 10 minute fly through of the news with no depth and interspersed with the damned Click and other various rubbish.

If they want to do as they please, then take the licence fee away and let them find a way to finance themselves in the real world but they will have to do that without my family's help.

There seem a few on here who`d miss it, I think we should all try to give the BBC some "feedback" on it, if enough people complain they`ll keep it, I`m sure of that.

Do you really think they would listen? That's  wishful  thinking.

Let’s face it, the BBC want to save money in order to fund other parts of their remit.

It would, however, be interesting to see exactly how many Beeb employees are in Japan on the Rugby jolly, and how many of those actually flew cattle class. Perhaps one of the Red Tops will do an FOI request!

Couldn`t agree with you more, have you sent a complaints form to the BBC ? There`s still a chance they`ll change their mind if enough people express their displeasure, and change of support for the TV licence.....

I have. I don't know how they deal with complaints but I have done my bit, it's all I can do.
