SBS is expanding its Chinese-language offering with the launch of SBS (SBS Chinese), a new digital service for Mandarin and Cantonese-speaking Australians, going live as Lunar New Year begins next month.

SBS (SBS.com.au/Chinese) will be a mobile-first digital offering, providing Chinese-speaking Australians with independent, trusted Australian news, information, and entertainment, and keeping them connected with news from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and around the world. Content will be published in Traditional and Simplified Chinese text with audio available in Mandarin and Cantonese.

Featuring short-form video, articles and audio content, SBS will be the comprehensive go-to service for all Chinese-speakers in Australia, providing more breaking news and current affairs in their language, along with innovative coverage of topics ranging from health and education to food and finance, and more. An extension of SBS's unique multilingual offering for Australia's multicultural communities, it will build on SBS Radio's Chinese-language radio and podcast services, and a growing Chinese subtitled content collection on SBS On Demand.

SBS Director of Audio and Language Content, David Hua, said, We are thrilled to be celebrating the beginning of the Lunar New Year with the launch of our new service, SBS , at the heart of our offering across the network.

SBS will cement SBS as a trusted source of news for Chinese-speakers in Australia, offering even more up-to-date, independent news and information important to their lives, and telling their stories.

Not only does SBS provide a trusted voice for these communities, as a network, we are uniquely positioned to help all Australians understand the issues behind the headlines about China. It's a story that impacts all of us, making SBS's role even more critical in contributing to understanding in the wider community.

SBS goes to the very heart of the SBS Charter, not only informing communities but also reflecting our multicultural society and promoting greater understanding across cultures, and evolving to meet the needs of our diverse audiences.

In addition to the launch of SBS , SBS is helping all Australians to celebrate Lunar New Year with a collection of curated content across the network.

David Hua added: Lunar New Year is celebrated by many cultures around the world and marked in many ways by communities here in Australia. While we can't come together in ways we're used to, all Australians can come to SBS to experience, learn, reflect and celebrate with content across our channels and platforms, and coverage from communities across SBS Radio.

SBS's curated Lunar New Year content will include the Australian television premiere of Be Water, the 2020 film about the life and legacy of trailblazer and martial arts legend Bruce Lee as well as Secrets of China's Forbidden City, a special access documentary about Beijing's Imperial Palace.

SBS VICELAND will showcase a range of shows including Kingdom of the Little People, a documentary about China's controversial theme park. SBS Food will mark the occasion with a weekend of Lunar New Year-inspired travel food shows as well as sharing dedicated recipes and articles online.

SBS On Demand and SBS World Movies will celebrate with a curated collection of films and across SBS Radio there will be a range of interviews and discussions about Lunar New Year activities happening across Australia, and how communities are marking the occasion.

Where Are You Really From? S1 E1, 3 Feb, 2pm

Playful but moving, the series explores the complex issues of cultural heritage and identity, and the way our assumptions around what an Australian' looks like impacts our understanding of what it means to be Australian.
