The cat may have got co-editor DJ Tim's tongue recently, but he's not ripped out his heart... the following message comes courtesy of DJT, a gift for those of you Brits with terrestrial digital TV access (i.e. not me) to pass on via the wonders of freeview to your loved ones this Valentines Day. Myself, I'm just going to have to stick with diamonds... gah!
Teletext is launching a new birthday and anniversary service on Freeview. To celebrate this launch, we're offering a free Valentines service on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Viewers can book, over the internet, a time slot for a personal valentine?s message to appear during their loved one's favourite ITV or C4 program (inc. ITV2, ITV3, More4, E4 etc). So, if the favourite program is The Bill or Shameless a personal message of love will appear during that program (or for 30 minutes within that program).
Blah blah blah.... We have made around 12,000 free message slots available... Blah blah... this is just my co-editor doing a spot of advertising, surely...
To book just go to: http://www.teletextmessages.co.uk and pick a slot from the list of TV programme options. Please don?t be greedy and take more than one slot though - everyone should get a chance to be romantic during valentines!!
