Infonet

Infonet

Infonet is a Malaysian teletext system. It was formally known as Beriteks (a combination of the Malay word "Berita", meaning "news", and "Teks", which is a borrowed word from the English language meaning "text"). The teletext system was launched on 1984 by TV3. It should be noted that while RTM1 and RTM2 were still transmitting Teletext, the contents of the transmission were different from those offered by TV3's service, which was then also transmitted under the name "Beriteks". RTM1 and RTM2 has ceased teletext transmission as of 2000, and TV3 was the only TV station in Malaysia transmitting Teletext. None of TV3's sister companies, 8TV, TV9 and NTV7, are transmitting teletext.

Infonet ceased operation from 1 January 2008. Therefore there are now no TV stations transmitting Teletext in Malaysia.

Infonet uses the BBC Ceefax teletext system.
