Sony Ten 1 Live Streming Tv Channel Watch Easy And History
Sony Ten is a group of Indian pay television sports channels owned by Culver Max Entertainment. It broadcasts cricket, football, golf, basketball, tennis, MMA, and professional wrestling events. It is a part of Sony Pictures Sports Network.
In January 2001, Taj Television Ltd. was formed in Dubai with Abdul Rehman Bukhatir of the Cricketers’ Benefit Fund in Sharjah as a backer. The company launched the channel as TEN Sports (as part of its Taj Entertainment Network) on 1 April 2002.
In 2006, Essel Group acquired Taj Television Ltd. and made it a part of Zee Entertainment Enterprises. However, the rights for Ten Sports in Pakistan were handed over to a company called Tower Two (Tower Sports Private Limited), another Essel Group subsidiary.
In 2010, Zee rebranded another one of its sports channels, Zee Sports, as Ten Action which featured adventure sports and non-cricket content. In 2011 Zee launched a new channel called Ten Cricket, exclusively for cricket matches. In March 2016, all channels in the Zee network were rebranded as Ten 1, Ten 2, and Ten 3 respectively.
Essel sold all of Zee’s sports networks to Sony Pictures Networks India in August 2016. The agreement was reached in September 2016, and the purchase was to be completed in two phases. Sony seized ownership of Indian sports networks previously owned by Zee when the first phase of the deal was completed in February 2017. In September 2017, Sony received access to the remaining sports rights owned by Zee once the second phase was completed.
In addition to the launch of HD simulcasts, the sports channels were rebranded under the Sony umbrella on July 18, 2017, with “Sony” added as a prefix.
