Ceefax

Ceefax
abbr.
The BBC's teletext system (from "See Facts"). Teletext is a digital text information service transmitted on analog television broadcasts in most parts of western Europe, including Britain. Most modern television sets can display teletext pages. Teletext includes news, sport news, television programme listings, travel news, weather and a variety of other information. It also includes subtitles for the hard of hearing, which operate in a very similar manner to the Closed Captioning system used in the USA and Canada.
