  1. Great the few shows I watch on SB2 will be gone.
    I guess the main thing to keep in mind is: it’s not so much the content a channel starts with as what the channel endings up becoming

    • Not clear. I think we would need to wait until the 12 months window is up for UnReal for example. They could still go to SBS On Demand or even SBS as Outlander is doing. S2 of UnReal is all about diversity in Reality TV so I guess they could justify it….?

  2. Adam Ruins Everything is the only show that stands out to me, but I am up to date with the US airings, so I guess I won’t be switching over. Also, they should have this as a proper 24hr channel, then move the world new programming to NITV and rename it SBS NC (News and Culture). It might help increase NITV’s low viewership and allow Viceland to increase it’s output, whether that is repeating the previous night’s programming the following day, or additional content for the afternoons.

    • Yeah, the channel really has a split personality with the foreign news / VICE programming. If they moved the news to NITV, then they could keep some of the old SBS 2 programming. Remains to be seen, but I think this is a big misstep from SBS. Why not keep the current branding and just buy best to VICE programs for a nightly programming block?

      • According to media reports that’s actually what Nine wanted to do, to have a Vice programming block on one of its channels (presumably 9Go), but Vice insisted that any such deal included a full channel re-brand, which 9 wasn’t keen on doing, but SBS it seems was OK with it.
