Channel 301 is actually one of the interactive BBC channels that can be accessed via the 'red' button from a normal BBC channel. It could be due to this that they don't have subtitles?

Re: a simple q plz

Because it's a BBC "Red Button" service that also appears as a separate channel if requested. As a red button service it can, on some decoders, be displayed at the same time as the channel from which it was requested, so if you are using subtitles on the originating channel most decoders would get confused about what subtitles to display. So best not to display any, until of course, it reverts to Beeb1 at 4.30pm. which is the originating channel, so no conflict.

Re: a simple q plz

Why on Earth would you want subtitles for something which is in text form anyway??  Don't the final scores appear as text tables?Huh

Re: a simple q plz

I've always assumed that the lack of services on red button channels was due to the bandwidth.  They already piggy-back on another channel, so adding subtitles, or other data-hungry additions like teletext, would not be possible (there's only so much data that you can squeeze into one radio band)
As for the Disability Discrimination Act, the BBC would be expected to make al reasonable adjustments.  If it's simply not technologically possible to do it, then what can they do?

Dda is a molecular motor, specifically a helicase that moves in the 5' end to 3' direction along a nucleic acid phosphodiester backbone, separating two annealed nucleic acid strands, using the free energy released by the hydrolysis of adenosine triphosphate

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Monday asked the  DDA, which recently razed an illegal mosque on its land sparking protests, to construct a boundary wall to repossess the plot and allow 10 members of the community to offer prayer for two months there to facilitate a solution.
"DDA will complete the construction of boundary wall (at the site where illegal mosque was demolished) and leave a gate of 2.5 feet to allow 10 persons of the community, whose names would be furnished to DDA and police, to offer 'namaz' for a period of two months...," Justice G S Sistani said.
