Who to call at 1200/75 these days? (V23 modem)

The question everyone is asking - and here’s an answer:
The TELSTAR Videotex System – GlassTTY

The service can be accessed using a traditional V23 modem or an internet modem in conjunction with a home computer. In the case of the BBC Microcomputer, Acorn’s Prestel adapter can be used. In addition access can be gained from from a PC or Mobile device using Richard T Russell’s BBC Basic for SDL 2.0 or Matrix Brandy BASIC V for Linux. Access can even be gained from the web thanks to the efforts of Simon Laszcz (see here).

Where any TV’s made with telstar video text system?

Very many televisions in Europe (at least) had teletext/videotext capability but I don’t know of any with modems. France of course had Minitel and that used V.23.
