Teletext on 4 launches

Teletext on 4 has now gone live on Channel 4 via the text button and on Freeview channel 50. The service has been testing via a secret code for the past few weeks but is now available to everyone. Some features new to Teletext include direct access to pages by entering a page number and a "Go to TV" option which will hide but remember the current page using the green button so the TV picture behind can be viewed (similar to Teletext services on analogue).
