New SBS radio line-up soon

After a 12 month review, SBS has announced changes to its radio services to meet the needs of multicultural Australia.

The new SBS Radio services to be implemented from Monday 20 November 2017 is here.

The SBS Radio Services Review began nearly 12 months ago with a public consultation into the proposed Selection Criteria to be used, in conjunction with the Census 2016 data, to select which languages would be serviced by SBS Radio from the end of 2017.

Save Our SBS contributed to the review process.

As Australia evolves, SBS has said it is committed to reviewing its services after each Census to reflect the demographical changes and to ensure it is supporting new communities who need news and information in language as they navigate life in a new country.

Since SBS last reviewed its services in 2011 more than 1.3 million people have migrated to Australia. An extra 950,000 people now speak a language other than English at home.
