Just (probably foolishly) brought a UE50AU8000.
Like my useless UE32T4307, doesn't offer any BBC Text service, ironically in the broadcasting | expert settings there is a section for setting Teletext LAnguage settings, with three sub options, so it seems Teletext should be available if there is any way to turn it on (or is it just sheer laziness by Samsung Engineering in not removing from firmware?).
Been through all the other options and can't find an obvious Teletext On switch, can anyone suggest if there's a fix, I've two friends with new Samsung TV and they do get Teletext so why doesn't my set offer it?
But the iplayer news presentation is rubbish & cumbersome compared to the teletext summaries.
Why the BBC can't reproduce the Teletext news service on iPlayer instead of some of the ridiculous shows they produce is beyond me

How absurd, all replies only confirm my criticism, don't resolve issue, and shows that Samsung just doesn't care about customer service/support any longer, just dish out the same rubbish, just so long as we keep on paying!
