Any one knows the reason why TV3 does not have teletext and subtitle on the Freeview while its VHF channel does.

Its either something to do with them not getting funding to provide the subtitles (NZ on air or something) or they havent got the gear to do it.

Guess if they have it on the VHF its that they havent got the gear for it. I think I read that somewhere a while ago when someone else pointed it out.

So does C4 now that they are no longer a music channel.

Apparently if you are not deaf you have no rights to be angry about the lack of them, that's something exclusively left for deaf people.
