New SBS On Demand app promises enhanced user experience and interface

Brodie Fogg 20 September 2016 NEWS


SBS has given its on-demand iOS app a much-needed make over.

If you're a religious SBS viewer, chances are you've had the unpleasant experience of tangling with its buggy iOS app, SBS On Demand. Thankfully, SBS must have been listening to the feedback that scored the old app a 1.5 out of 5 star rating on the App Store. Today, SBS has released an update that promises to "enhance user experience and a new user interface".

In addition to a fresh look and feel, the SBS On Demand also introduces an updated video player, updated Airplay support, improved search function, personalised login options (including favourites lists) and optimisation for devices on iOS 8 and above.

There's no mention of whether or not the updated interface also applies to the Apple TV app, but we'll update this story as soon as we find out.

    How do I sign up for SBS on Demand on my Apple Mac. Do I have to register on Finder? I cannot find an app in the App Store.

      Hi Titch,

      Thank you for reaching out to finder.

      Downloading the Apple application is available by using the Safari website and going to the SBS on Demand web page. Once there, scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see the “Download on the App Store” logo to the right of the page. Please download and follow the instructions for you to be able to use SBS on Demand via your Apple Laptop. Hope this helps!
