There is a teletext feature on the televisions in the hotel rooms. In England there was a way to get subtitles to appear by going to the teletext interface and entering 888. As far as I know this is no longer available.

In Romania, is there a special code you can enter into the teletext interface to enable subtitles? I've tried 888 but it doesn't do anything.

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about TVs – Vince Nov 10 '14 at 5:01

    Teletext codes are nationally standardized, so no, this is actually not model-dependent. – jpatokal Nov 10 '14 at 5:25

    @Flimzy But that's not even relevant as an answer to my remark or the OP's question. The question is how many countries do you have experience with? Because I know several where the teletext page for subtitles is the same across many channels… – Relaxed Nov 10 '14 at 12:41

    @Flimzy It's still unclear to me exactly why you think the question is off-topic but all your comments suggest you are completely unfamiliar with Teletext. That's fine but don't make assumptions, please. – Relaxed Nov 10 '14 at 13:11

    @Flimzy This question was inspired by a real problem that I faced when I recently went to Romania for a holiday. The tour page mentions that such things are on topic. It's as much on topic as other questions on the site that are not directly about getting on a bus, train, aeroplane or driving. I think that this question is very similar to Making calls from Romania which according to the views of those that closed this question should also be closed because it's about telephones. – Alex Nov 24 '14 at 12:04

Bad news. While 888 will get you the teletext subtitles in Greece, Belgium and other countries, and Austria is 777, for example, Romania is one of the few EU members to have NONE for Teletext subtitling.
