SBS PopAsia is an Australian music video television show produced by the Special Broadcasting Service (SBS), a national public service broadcaster. Originally a two-hour Sunday morning program, the show expanded in 2013 to three hours of prime-time broadcast across Saturday and Sunday evenings on SBS2, one of the broadcaster’s four digital television stations. Using the tagline “Non-stop Asian Pop”, this program builds on the success of the pre-existing 24-hour SBS PopAsia digital radio station. Its programming roster consists primarily of music videos, including new and popular releases from Asian artists. South Korean music predominates, although videos from countries including Japan, Taiwan, China, and Vietnam are also shown. These videos are occasionally interspersed with short original features such as brief primers on selected artists, interviews, and on-location pieces from cultural and pop music events.
