SBS Radio has finalised reviewing its language services. This process was undertaken to ensure the services reflect Australia’s rapidly changing and increasingly diverse society. In 2012, we reviewed SBS Radio’s services for the first time in nearly 18 years. At the time, we made a commitment to review our services again after the 2016 Census.

 

Based on the findings of the 2016 Census, more than 1.3 million people have migrated to Australia during the past five years and nearly 4.87 million people speak a language other than English at home. SBS’s language services will be realigned to reflect today’s Australia.
