Yes, you read that right! Alistair Buxton, he of VHS-Teletext tape recovery software fame, has posted thirty new (well, old) teletext services for you to browse at your leisure. Here’s a message from the man himself:

Unlike Jason [Robertson] I don’t fix them by hand, so quality is variable. These are the raw output from the new decoder algorithm.

I’ve also added some fancy new scanline effects to the CSS. You can see an example [above].

Exciting, eh? Click here or the above image to launch the file browser for these services.

If you wish, you can also consult this archive, which currently contains more than twenty services contributed by Jason Robertson.

More classic services are surely to come, for this is the year of teletext tape recovery! Happy teletexting, teletexters.
