Sony Entertainment Television, popularly known as SET, was launched back in 1995 and is owned and operated by Sony Pictures Networks India. It is one of the oldest and most popular general entertainment channels in the Indian television network. Like all the other television networks, SET also underwent many logo re-designs to land on a final form. The infamous blue-green logo that we see today was curated way back in 2001. The logo contains a unique Helvetica black font style with the letter “S” visible in the middle. But sony entertainment television or SET had to keep a universal logo across all their channels, which they did later in 2007; they changed the font style from Helvetica black to Clarendon font. But eventually, the company put the word “sony” under a black rectangle and kept the blue-green color combination as we see today.
To keep up with the changing market, SET launched its HD segment in 2012, which showed each content in HD and superior audio quality. Some of the big competitors of Sony Entertainment Television are Zee TV, Star Plus, Colors, and some more.
Some of the popular shows that contributed to the success of the SET channel are :
At least two full generations have watched this show, and they still have new content to show. The show revolves around a Crime Investigation Department, which ACP Pradyuman leads. He and his team try to solve some of the toughest crime investigations in the country and punish the culprit behind bars.

It shows that a killer might be among us; we could be eating with them, sleeping with them, hanging out with them, we never know. The show portrays some of the most painful deaths, robberies, crimes, and people who have extramarital affairs and cheat their relationships.
