This paper attempts to analyze the North American consumer's reaction to Teletext. A forecast is required since a consumer teletext system has not yet been implemented in North America. While Teletext has many potential categories of users and can be implemented in many different ways, this paper will concentrate on broadcast teletext as an ancillary service for consumers. The analysis is based on considerations of technical feasibility and the constraints imposed by consumer behavior. The results of this analysis have important implications on system design.
