Sony SAB, also known as SAB channel, is an Indian-origin entertainment television channel, bringing smiles to millions of faces over a long period. The channel is owned and operated by Sony Pictures Networks, and the channel solely focuses on comedy shows and daily soaps. The channel is headquartered in Maharashtra, Mumbai, and their slogan states, “khushiyon wali feeling.” It was launched in April 2000 by Shri Adhikari Brothers, which gave the acronym SAB and later sold to Sony Corporation in 2005.
Tired of the traditional logo style, Sony Sab was desperate to re-design its logo so that it catches the viewer’s eye and stays in the mind of their regular watchers. So finally, in 2013, Sony decided to hire an Argentine Design company named Steinbranding, responsible for the logo style we see today. They gave the channel an eye-popping colour combination, and it still seems pretty fresh in 2021. However, during the festive times, the channel keeps animating the logo as per the Indian festivals to create a sense of support and happiness among the viewers.
Now with growing times, the channel had to deal with the increasing demands of the viewers to watch HD content. Earlier, the channel showed standard quality content with the standard audio procedure. In 2015, Sony Sab introduced their new segment of the channel named Sony Sab HD, containing a similar logo with the word “HD” placed just below the logo. Not to be confused, Sony did not discontinue their old standard definition channel; these are now two different channels showing similar shows but at different time frames. During the incorporation of the HD channel, Sony Sab underwent many design and logo changes, but those were temporary only.
Today, Sony Sab has a TRP of 154, the third-highest Indian television market; their YouTube channel has more than 50 million subscribers and has racked more than 63 billion views. Credit goes to some of the greatest and most successful soap operas in Indian television history, which is Tarak Mehta ka Oolta Chashma, some other famous shows like FIR, Lapataganj, Balvir, Tenali Rama, and many more.
