Save SBS before election time

Email politicians about SBS before the election is called (eNewsLetter 8)

Below is some important news from Save Our SBS.

As a result of the continued inadequate government funding for SBS and the annoying reliance on commercial breaks interrupting programs, we are often asked: What can I do now?

New SBS Chair appointed

Recently a new Chair of SBS was announced. Mr Joseph Skrzynski will take up his position of SBS Chair on 17 December 2009. He is already an existing member of the SBS Board. He was appointed during the term of the current government and his newer appointment to that of SBS Chair has caused a vacancy on the SBS Board.  A link of how to apply to serve on the SBS Board is in the story New SBS Chair appointed at www.SaveOurSBS.org

Banning commercial breaks on SBS

There have been no further moves in the parliament to debate or vote on the Special Broadcasting Service Amendment (Prohibition of Disruptive Advertising) Bill 2009 that we reported on in Bill bans ad interruptions on SBS-TV. If you are wondering what happened to the government’s official policy that objected to ads interrupting programs on SBS, then read No ad breaks on SBS parts 1 & 2: ‘When is a policy not a policy? & ‘Minister denies policy.
