End of ads on SBS: when?

You may be wondering what happened to the Bill introduced in the Senate last year to phase out disruptive breaks on SBS-TV. Following the campaign in April last year, organised by SaveOurSBS.org in which a confirmed 9,171 messages were sent from ordinary people like you, the government granted SBS the biggest increase in base government funding ever (27%) and decided advertising is a matter for SBS to now determine. Additionally, SBS will be granted three year funding this May but has no plans to move ads out of programs, believing that advertising and in-program disruptions are a non

Action needed this month to fund SBS without disruptive breaks

Greens to ban ads & increase SBS funding

Following our last eNewsLetter we’ve been asked: Who will ban advertising on SBS and increase funding?

The Greens are the only party that have an SBS policy that would resolve the number one issue that many have wanted for a long time; no more commercial breaks in programs on SBS-TV coupled with more funding. SaveOurSBS.org supports that position. No other party has expressed such a policy to us.

On Monday, the ALP replied en masse to many about SBS. As a result we’ve taken the unusual step of sending you this eNewsLetter (two in the same week)

Party promises to ban ads & increase funding

Guess who wants to slash SBS funding, dilute its Charter, fully commercialise it and then sell it? Which party will do the opposite – ban advertising and boost funding? And who is going to offer more of the same?

We approached all four parties and the responses are now published at SaveOurSBS.org

It’s definitely worth reading to find out what will happen, depending on who is elected.

In other news, in the past month, more than 12,000 emails have been sent to various political leaders from visitors to the SaveOurSBS.org website urging our politicians to increase

Only a minute please

You may have missed Vote to restore SBS as it is only very new or the now updated earlier campaign Rescue SBS. These are pleas for your assistance to apply pressure, to extract promises now, before the election from the next government, to revive, restore and rescue SBS. Three things are desperately needed for the survival and improvement of SBS:-

1) funding to cover the loss of revenue caused by a desire to not interrupt programs; 2) funding so SBS may expand into the future without adverts; 3) funding to recover the shortfall from past years

More action to end adverts

Now that the election date has been announced, we’ve launched a NEW CAMPAIGN as a continuation of our early July theme to restore multicultural broadcasting; asking for more government funding for SBS and for the removal of advertising disruptions. However it will take more than a single campaign alone before any politician is going to promise to boost SBS funding and stop the ad breaks. This will be an ongoing campaign and your further support and participation is needed again.
