SBS to launch a New Channel in Australia

The Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) is to partner with VICE, the global youth brand, to launch a new channel in Australia. The new lifestyle and culture TV channel will feature programming from VICELAND, and screen free-to-air on SBS later this year.

SBS will own and operate the new channel and will be on the SBS 2 channel spectrum and online platforms. Programming will focus on original lifestyle and culture content for young viewers and will feature Australian produced programs.

Michael Ebeid, SBS Managing Director and CEO, said, “Exploring diversity through culture is at the heart of SBS’s purpose and we are excited to be partnering with VICE to bring some of the best available content from across the world, never before seen in Australia, in documentary, journalism and inspiring entertainment, free to all Australians on SBS channels and platforms.”
