SBS calls for Australian content quota. The SBS and Save Our SBS have both called for a quota to be set for local content on its primary channel. In a submission to the Senate inquiry into Australian content on broadcast, radio and streaming services, the interest group suggests a 30% local content requirement, increasing to 55%, and one of the digital channels to be dedicated to content in languages other than English. Both SBS and Save Our SBS have asked for a fully-funded Australian content quota and an increase in the producer offset. SBS specified it did not think there should be a local content quota on its streaming or radio services.

Betoota Advocate launches podcast. Satirical news website The Betoota Advocate has announced it will launch a podcast. In a press release from their chosen platform Acast, there were few details about the offering, other than suggesting the podcast would be available for a daily commute and might focus on crime and sport.
