Distinctive Network

The SBS Charter drives a commitment to storytelling with a point of difference; from trusted news and current affairs to sport that unites communities, live events that celebrate diversity, and Australia’s most compelling dramas and documentaries.

A truly distinctive network, SBS pushes boundaries and encourages audiences to consider new perspectives, with a programming slate that captures the real Australia – diverse, multilingual, and culturally rich.

In 2018-19, SBS continued to showcase multicultural, multilingual and Indigenous stories otherwise untold in the Australian media, exploring issues in new ways, and gave a voice to communities often unheard, all with the aim of shifting perceptions and making a world of difference for all Australians.
