Red Button digital text changes

We have recently made some changes to the BBC's Red Button text services. We performed some technical work behind the scenes to remove the final parts of the publishing processes still powered by the recently discontinued Ceefax service.

We’ve tried to keep any changes to the public service to a minimum, but there will be some alterations to the content provided. Details of the changes are listed on the Red Button service on p998.
