Sony Pal (stylised as "Sony पल") is an Indian pay television channel that was launched on 1 September 2014. It was initially aimed at women with women-oriented Hindi-language programming, now focused on family-oriented programming.[1] The channel is owned by Sony Pictures Networks.[2]


Sony Pal was launched in 1 September 2014 originally as a pay-TV channel, with Juhi Chawla as its ambassador.[3] The channel mostly aired women-centric reality shows[4] to compete with mainstream Hindi GECs like Star Plus, ZEE TV, Colors whose core TG is also women-oriented.

The channel had a low audience share[5] of 11,000 during the first weeks of its launch, as compared to other channels like Life OK, Star Plus, Zee TV and Colors TV.[6] Due to this, the channel ceased its business operations on 13 February 2015,[7] broadcasting re-runs of Sony TV and Sony SAB shows.[8]

The channel was then rebranded and turned into free-to-air TV channel, as it started syndication of former SET and Sony SAB series like Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, CID and Baalveer. It was available on DD Freedish, Sony Pal started gathering a fair audience share by 2016.[9]
