      Angry Sky tv text gone

      Anyone know why have Sky got rid of its TV text service? (cost cutting?) It may not have been perfect but it is better than nothing if you do not/cannot use the internet.
      I didn't know it was going until today when my son told me he couldn't get it, he cannot use the internet due to leading difficulties.
      Sky increase the fees and provide less yet again. Anyone know if Virgin have a TV text service.

      Just found that out this morning when checking for non-runners. I have always preferred the Sky Text as it gave the horse number as well as its name. BBC only gives the horses name which makes it a wee bit slower to get through the cards.

      I don't bet myself, but my other half has a daily flutter.
