ABOUT

Sony Channel was designed for complete family-friendly entertainment with mix of programming that included dramas, comedies and thrillers.

The channel broadcast a mix of programming including drama, comedy and reality series as well as commercial and independent movies.

The channel also aired South African week-nightly broadcasts of the US night-time talk show Late Show with David Letterman, and was the premiere broadcaster of the reality series The Amazing Race.

The channel changed named from Sony Entertainment Television to Sony Channel on Tuesday 23 September, 2014. According to Sony, the name change was because "the channel is seven years old and the name change is part of the brand evolution process that aims to both simplify and provide greater brand clarity. The resulting 'Sony Channel' is just that."

Both Sony Channel and sister channel Sony MAX were discontinued on 31 October, 2018.
