Sunday 5 January 1986 — VICTORIA

The final day of transmission for SBS on VHF Channel 0. From the following day, SBS is available only on UHF Channel 28.

The network was granted only a temporary licence for a VHF service when inaugurated in 1980, to allow viewers time to get accustomed to tuning in to the new UHF band.
