What will happen to SBS after the election?

Guess who wants to slash funding for SBS, Australia’s multi-cultural channel... 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?

SBS lobby campaign, SaveOurSBS approached four political parties and have published responses. The results on their website are definitely worth reading before Saturday's election for all SBS fans.

Over the last month or so, around 12,000 emails were sent to political leaders from SaveOurSBS visitors asking for an increase in SBS funding to rid the channel of advertising.
