While I agree that dvb subtitles are usually better than teletext 
subtitles, there are cases when it isn't so.
For example, itv3 (shoot me, but I like Poirot) broadcasts both teletext 
and dvb subtitles, but the dvb subtitles are ~6 seconds early, so 
they're unusable.
Btw, a 20€ dvb-t set-top box handles teletext subtitles just fine.
