UK TV's have teletext decoders built in that display the data as text frames.

Its a bit slow but really pre-web useful!
The fun thing is that it's really old technology, but probably more
appreciated than newer technology..
Turn on the TV, push three buttons and in a few seconds you've weather
forecasts. Not quite the same with Web-TV and a dial-up line.. :)

Internet Explorer 4! :)
Tune teletext on a given "news" page, and a two-lines message will pop up
as soon as a new message is available!
