SBS Free To Air Movie Channel.

Recommended Posts

I hope add free

waste of time watching movies with adds in them

the better the movie the bigger the time waste

sbs needs to start a paid streaming service for all its movies and tv shows or at least an option to pay for add free

while I fully agree, and wish it would be an add free channel, I think there's close to zero chance of adds not being a big part of the mix. Even in the OnDemand the adds are being spliced into the actual content before and after the "official" "here's the adds" bookmark. So the advert count is " playing add 1 of total 3" but you actually get 5 adds total in the add break.

One more reason to use a PVR to record and skip the commercials on FTA TV. Hardly use catch-up TV due to the unskippable commercials and low quality video.

 

Also bad luck for those with very old MPEG-2 only TVs. Not being able to watch any of the MPEG-4 only channels. Unless they buy a PVR or set top box compatible with MPEG-4 and watch through that.

 

MPEG-4 only stations
Metropolitan: 7food network, Racing.com / SBS Viceland (From June 17),  SBS World Movies ( (From July 1st)

Regional: 9Life, SBM, Aspire TV / 7Flix, ishop TV, Racing.com / TVSN / Sky News on WIN, Gold (All MPEG-4 576i SDTV)

Even with the ad breaks it still going to be welcome in this household. I started watching SBS back in the day because they aired mostly foreign language films which to me are superior to the comic book hero trash that comes out of the U.S. I don't know if government directives are responsible,  but it all changed when Howard was in power. Ads were introduced and slowly all foreign language content was supplanted with English language shows. You hardly see any foreign language movies on SBS now unless it's a movie that starts after 1 am.

the long string of ads on SBS starting to really annoy me! Endless promos for upcoming shows plus a few ads at every break!

At least they're less on demand. SS-GB is great. Been seduced by Netflix lately, on a free trial but I can see that being extended!

Really loving Babylon Berlin (in German with subtitles, how it should be!) on Netflix.

Not for me

I agree on sbs and foreign language films

they also have the best tv shows now that Murdoch gets first go at the BBC

i can put up with adds and fast forwarding recorded shows but great movies and television are wrecked by adds

A bit off topic -  saw Season 1 and 2 last year on Netflix and loved it. Blown away more like it. Feels so relevant and of today, ground breaking in many ways. Shame they haven't bought the rest of the seasons.  Sorry for being off topic. More closely SBS related - this series would fit SBS just so....

I wouldn't hold your hopes up about ads.  I posted some months ago in the SBS thread about the frequency and numbers of ads on SBS On Demand.  I don't think there is any regulation of advertising on on-demand services.

 

Having said that, there are still lots of films on On Demand that you would never get to see anywhere else - for example Volver by Pedro de Almodovar, which I saw at the weekend.  Where else are you going to see films of that calibre on free-to-air?
