Sbectel is S4C’s analogue teletext service, and is bilingual, showing information in Welsh on one page and in English on the other.

The ‘888’ service is not subtitles for the hearing impaired – it’s the TRANSL888 function giving English subtitles to Welsh-only programmes. Welsh subtitles for the deaf and for those learning the language (Simplified Welsh) appear on page 889.
