Chat with our Text Jockeys

Here at Chatbox TV, our resident Text Jockeys are here to make sure our viewers, callers and text chatters are having fun in a safe environment. You can chat with our Text Jockeys at anytime. Their nickname is always prefixed with “TJ” and when you watch the channel you’ll soon see them in conversation with our audience. Each Text Jockey has a completely different personality (and fan club!!) so there are lots of interesting topics to talk about whilst you’re chatting and flirting with our genuine users.

Our Text Jockeys also moderate all of the pictures that are sent for broadcast on our TV screen and they won’t allow anything to be broadcast that is illegal, explicit or inappropriate for a "free-to-air" channel. So bear that in mind when you’re sending in your pics and messages!

So don’t forget about the TJs…send them a message and join in the banter! Just text a message to 83388 now and get chatting on the TV!
