The Movie Show=[edit]

While the article re: The Movie Show may intially seem POV as it comes from the ABC, the article itself is fairly unbiased, carrying comments from the head of the SBS. - Aaron Hill 10:56, 4 Jun 2004 (UTC)

More on SBS History[edit]

This article needs a lot more on SBS Radio and SBS's history (particularly it's founding and the influence of Omni) matturn 06:21, 25 Apr 2005 (UTC)

SBS aiding other networks[edit]

The article says "... SBS came to the aid of other networks (mainly the Seven Network) by broadcasting the 2004 Athens Olympics and the 2005 Ashes Test Matches (Cricket)."

Is that a valid statement to make because it is a stretch to say that SBS hosted these events to aid the other networks, in fact I highly doubt that's why they did it. I would say that SBS did it to get the ratings :) Akamad 01:30, September 10, 2005 (UTC)

SBS, like the ABC, will maintain that it doesn't care about ratings. It only cares about being relevant to the sections of the community it is designed to serve. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Liberal Bias[edit]

I see nothing that gives referance to the stations blatant left wing bias.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

What bias? raptor 09:45, 14 August 2006 (UTC)


The additional comment "This relaxed attitude to sex ... (particularly among teenagers) seems superfluous, given that the information was already written previously, it also creates a generalisation that is unusual for an encyclopedia.Sumthingweird 21:54, 4 January 2006 (UTC) -- Yeah, i was going to comment on the talk page about the amount of sex and what not on SBS. Now i know wikipedia is against original research, but it seems that SBS is a bit infamous for the sex, and i have often heard it being called SBS: Sex Broadcasting Station. I think a small comment should be made in the article if someone would do it... (talk) 06:55, 11 March 2008 (UTC)

SBS User Template[edit]

For any of you users out there who watch SBS, and want a template on your user page that shows it off, I created one here. Feel free to make use of it and edit it as you please. Black-Velvet 10:23, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

New Advertising Structure[edit]

The upcoming new advertising scheme (,5478,19333870%255E662,00.html) should be worked into the article at a suitable point.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Gold Logie Nominations[edit]

Has a persons from SBS been nominated for the Gold Logie?

Overseas 'World Watch' news bulletins[edit]

The overseas news bulletins shown on SBS under the 'World Watch' branding are NOT subtitled (either on digital or analog television). From the SBS website: "With such time constraints it would be impossible to subtitle the 17 different languages broadcast in WorldWatch. The delay would mean that the news bulletins would be outdated by the time they are ready for presentation." SBS FAQ's - World Watch I will ammend this. --Mgill 06:46, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

SBS TV[edit]

SBS TV content moved to article: SBS TV. --Stickeylabel 12:39, 25 October 2006 (UTC)


Shouldn't the bit about the "Electronic Program Guide" be changed to Video Program Guide, there is a major difference. Whitehornmatt 01:14, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

What Station?[edit]

Pretty trivial question, but I was just wondering what station (on the television that is) SBS is officially connected to. I've always accociated it with station 28, just as I've always accociated ABC with station 2. Though I have no idea why. Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks. --Dark_Wolf101 02:11, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

SBS is on 28 in most capital cities so that's a reasonable association to make. Channel 1 is also somewhat common. timgraham 06:44, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
