About Us

SBS was founded on the belief that all Australians, regardless of geography, age, cultural background or language skills should have access to high quality, independent, culturally-relevant Australian media.

Working at SBS we are bound together by a vision for content that has meaning and makes a difference; we share a passion for what we do and a set of principles guides our progress.

Being brave and being committed to life-changing programming makes each of our jobs at SBS harder in some ways, but it also makes the rewards (and the awards) so much sweeter.

Through SBS Radio, SBS Television and SBS Online, we tell the stories of humankind in more languages than any other broadcaster in the world; at last count, 74 languages on radio, more than 60 on television and more than 50 online.

In the 21st century, multiculturalism means more than bringing the cultures of other worlds into your home. It is reflecting back to Australians the increasingly multicultural spirit of our own community. SBS celebrates diversity and contributes to the social inclusion and cross-cultural understanding of all Australians – linguistically, sociologically and culturally.

At SBS we are inviting Australians to explore and celebrate what it is to be an Australian in all of our diversity.
