  1. Technically its not free on Xbox boo! You have to be a ‘Gold member’ which costs you about $80 a year, for the privilege to access content such as SBS on Demand.

  2. So basically on everything except Android phone and tablets 🙁 This is where the ABC and SBS should team up to avoid duplicating resources, even if they don’t merge into a single entity.

  3. SBS On Demand also appeared automatically as a Smart TV app on my LG TV a few weeks ago. It replaced the disappointing 7Plus app which only had an extremely limited offering of programs, most of which were shows that did not air in prime time or on secondary channels. They appears to be catalogue shows like Dilbert, Just Shoot Me and various other 90’s sitcoms.
