If you choose to watch videos on the SBS On Demand app over your mobile provider’s network, you should take your data quota into consideration. This is the amount of data that your mobile phone company allows you to download each month at no extra cost. Should you exceed this quota, you may need to pay for extra costs.

Prior to using the SBS On Demand app on a mobile network, SBS recommends that you confirm with your mobile phone provider what your data quota is, as well as what the costs are for exceeding this quota. It is important that you monitor your usage to ensure that you don’t exceed your limit.

Please find below an approximate guide as to how much data could be consumed watching a SBS On Demand video on a mobile provider’s network. This assumes watching over a strong 3G connection, when data consumption is highest, and assumes that no data has been consumed other than via watching the video:

• 60 minute video - up to 675MB of data
• 30 minute video - up to 340MB of data
• 10 minute video - up to 115MB of data
• 5 minute video - up to 50MB of data

Watching SBS On Demand on any Apple device is metered regardless of your ISP.

Due to rights restrictions, most videos on SBS On Demand are geo-blocked to Australia.

Won't log in

This app requires one to log into one's SBSOnline account before one can view any content. This is a problem because the current version of this app will not let me log in. I enter the same credentials that I have used with this app successfully in previous versions, and it just sits there with the little "waiting" icon doing its thing indefinitely, until I get bored and close the app.

This "making users log in before viewing content" thing REALLY isn't working for you, SBS. How about you chuck it in and we go back to how it was before, with no login required? At least that way we get to see the content...


I downloaded the SBS on demand app specifically to watch Midnight Sun. I can't even watch an episode. The ads constantly repeat until it freezes then boots me back out to the menu screen. I can watch any other program except this one. I'd really like to watch this program but am extremely disappointed that it won't work. I sometimes get an error message. I've tried deleting the app and reinstalling. I've also set up a new account using a different email address. Nothing works. There is no pending update suggesting I have the latest version. I just want to watch Midnight Sun. Very disappointed SBS on demand.

Still no Chromecast

There are some great movies and programs on this but my main complaint is that it doesn't support Chromecast. I want to watch movies on a larger screen than an iPad and share the watching with my family. Come on SBS, it can't be that difficult to do.

Also, the ads are pretty annoying when you can have ABC, Netflix and the like. I can't believe they raise that much revenue for you. How about a subscription membership without the ads?
