Hello: I would like to ask you to do as myself and others and make a submission directly to government using an online form about SBS. Please visit so you can do the same too. All submissions will be read by the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy. I want the government to legislate to prohibit SBS-TV from interrupting programs for commercial breaks and fund SBS properly so it can again be a special multicultural broadcaster free from ads. I am urging you to do the same. Please visit which has a sample submission with some suggestions regarding other matters that you might want to include in your submission to government about SBS in the digital age. Please visit now. You may use the sample submission from there if you prefer or the link provided there to the government's website submission form. Do it now as submissions close 4pm AEDT on 12 December 2008. This is a once in a life time opportunity to directly influence the Minister, Senator Conroy and government about SBS. Go to now!
