History

Sony SAB was launched as SAB TV by the Sri Adhikari Brothers (thus the acronym) on 23 April 1999. At first it was launched as a Hindi-language comedy channel. Sony Pictures Networks took over SAB TV in March 2005[3][4] and rebranded it as Sony SAB, with a new focus on general entertainment[5] and eventually turning itself into a youth channel. In 2008, Sony Sab changed its appeal to being a Hindi-language generalist network.[6]

The high-definition feed of the channel was launched on 5 September 2016.[7]
