Media Statement
SBS welcomes the funding of $887 million over the next three years it has received as part of the 2019-20 Federal Budget.

We’re pleased that the Government has maintained SBS’s funding which recognises the relevance and value of SBS as a trusted public broadcaster, contributing to the vitality of Australia as a successful, inclusive society.
The funding received is critical to SBS’s ongoing ability to tell multicultural and Indigenous stories otherwise untold in the Australian media, giving a voice to those otherwise unheard, and providing vital services to Australia’s diverse communities.
