Teletext Holidays is set to be resurrected as a new app on Virgin Media's TiVo-based subscription TV service.

The retro information service - which allowed ITV, Channel 4 and Five Teletext readers to browse holiday deals and listings - is being relaunched with a new look and feel designed specifically for broadband-TV users.

Teletext Holidays will be accessible through TiVo's Apps and Games menu, allowing users to view available trips, hotel images and destination video guides.

Victoria Sanders, Managing Director of Teletext Holidays, said: "Searching for holidays on the television is what our brand is famous for, so the partnership with Virgin Media is an exciting new direction for us.

"We've invested in creating an app which is simple, inspiring and practical to use. The joy for customers is being able to browse through available holidays, view hotel images and destination video guides all from the comfort of their sofa."

Virgin Media's On-Demand Director Aleks Habdank said the flexibility of the TiVo service has enabled Teletext Holidays to bring its "much-loved" holiday deals back to TV.

He added: "This is just the kind of interactive experience that we know our customers get excited about, and with TiVo's constantly evolving range of innovative apps and services there really is something for everyone to enjoy."
