Colors, known as Aapka Colors in the United States and Canada, is a Hindi language Indian general entertainment channel based in Mumbai,[1] part of the Viacom 18 family, which was launched on July 21, 2008.[2]

The channel features a number of shows, such as Comedy Nights with Kapil, Balika Vadhu, Shastri Sisters, Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi, Uttaran, Sasural Simar Ka, Beintehaa, Udaan, Bigg Boss 8 and The Anupam Kher Show - Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai.

It has a sister channel, Rishtey, which broadcasts re-runs of Colors shows and as of February 2013 some programmes of Pakistani channels, such as Humsafar,[3]


Colors HD[edit]

Colors HD was added by various DTH Operators in India and Nepal including Dish Home (Nepal), DishTV,[4] Airtel digital TV,[5] Videocon d2h[6] and Tata Sky.[7] This commercial-free channel is available in 1080i. Hathway digital cable also provides Colors HD.[8]


On 21 January 2010, Colors became available on Dish Network in the U.S., where it is called Aapka Colors (Your Colors) because of a clash with Colours TV.[9] Amitabh Bachchan served as brand ambassador for the UK and USA launches.[10]

Colors launched in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Sky on 25 January 2010.[11] On 9 December 2009, INX Media confirmed that Colors had bought 9XM's Sky EPG slot on channel 829 and on 5 January 2010, Colors secured a deal to join the ViewAsia subscription package.[12][13] Initially the channel was available free-to-air and then subsequently was added to the ViewAsia package on 19 April 2010.[14] Colors was added to Virgin Media on 1 April 2011, as a part of the Asian Mela pack.[15] On 2 September 2013, Colors left the ViewAsia package and became free-to-air on satellite again, as well as moving to Virgin's basic package.[16]
