Germany’s 112 Emergency (or 112 Sie retten Dein Leben in its home country) is the first new drama series on SBS2, which launches today.
The channel hits the airwaves under its new branding from 6pm, with a 5 minute launch, followed by a screening of Harvie Krumpett. World News Australia is simulcast at 6:30pm and a repeat of last night’s Dateline.
112 Emergency at 8:30pm is centred around police officers, paramedics and fire-fighters. It will be followed by movies The Ninth Day and Sorry For Kung Fu.
With the arrival of SBS2 (formerly SBS News channel), the feature SBS channel will be known as SBS1.
Meanwhile SBS HD continues to retransmit programming from SBS1.
SBS2 Guides are available in Advance Guides.
Meanwhile still no further word from Seven or Nine on the launch date of their secondary channels.
