For over two years, we’ve been campaigning to have the public broadcaster SBS stop airing gambling ads.
Showing these ads for dangerous products is in clear breach of the community standards SBS operates under. The amount of revenue is relatively small – and now with the Government announcing a funding boost, there are no more excuses.
Whether it's live, on demand, on radio or digital – there’s no place for advertising harmful products.
We’re working towards a complete ban on gambling ads, but we need our public broadcaster to be the first to act.
Pushing the SBS Board to act will help us end the terrible situation in Australia where no child under 13 has watched a major sporting event without gambling marketing.
