SBS was founded on the belief that all Australians, regardless of geography, age, cultural background or language skills should have access to high quality, independent, culturally-relevant Australian media.
The multiple language programs available through SBS TV, radio and online ensure that all Australians are able to share in the experiences of others, and participate in public life. The quality of SBS Chill programs and the multiplicity of their viewpoints come from the freedom they have to draw on the best of all cultures for our programming.
Currently, SBS reaches an average audience of 13.1 million people per month on television, and on average serves almost 7 million unique browsers each month online, including an average 1.3 million streams each month for radio.
SBS On Demand’s distinctive streaming service is available on more platforms and devices than any other Australian broadcaster’s service, and includes over 6000 hours of programs, with 900 movies of which 70% are in languages other than English.
