SBS' new online video service joins the ranks of ABC's excellent iView and Seven's slightly less sexy 7PLUS, but omits the catchy naming convention; it's simply "On Demand". Aside from SBS' homegrown offerings — programs such as Immigration Nation, Go Back to Where You Came From and First Australians — it'll also offer up live streaming sports (presumably where it has the rights to do so) and feature films. If you sign up to the service you can save wishlists and be informed when new programs become available. The minimum bandwidth rate is stated as 1.5Mbps, essentially in line with other streaming services. At this stage no ISPs have announced that they'll offer the service unmetered, as some do with iView on selected platforms.[On Demand]

There's not much new footage, but it’s probably going to be more than enough for Marvel Studios to swipe Avatar’s box office record.
