"The new channel for emerging culture."

SBS2 is an Australian digital channel and spinoff of SBS for thinking young people (in other words, the 16-39 audience). This began on 1 April 2013 as a rebrand designed to help SBS keep the young audience it attracted when it first brought South Park to Australia in the ‘90s, or when it aired controversial documentaries like Go Back To Where You Came From.

In a break with traditional broadcasting, some of SBS2's shows will be on its Back2Back online portal, free on the net in their entirety before they've even aired on TV.

SBS2 has is very diverse in what it airs. Crude adult cartoons, cult comedy like Community, and Japanese Game Shows like Ninja Warrior or VS Arashi are common. From Chinese action flicks to French zombie movies to erotic Korean Drama, if you’re looking for something a bit out there, SBS2 has probably got something for you.

SBS2 also shows lots of football, cycling and netball, and continues with most of pre-rebrand SBS TWO's international foreign-language news broadcasts before 6pm.

Compare ABC3, another digital channel for young Australians.
