Programming[edit]

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 and Tata Sky.[6] This commercial-free channel is available in 1080i. Hathway digital cable also provides Colors HD.[7]

International[edit]

On 21 January 2010, Colors became available on Dish Network in the U.S., where it is called Aapka Colors (Your Colors) to not be confused with now-defunct Colours TV.[8] Amitabh Bachchan served as brand ambassador for the UK and USA launches.[9]

Colors launched in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Sky on 25 January 2010.[10] 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.[11][12] Initially the channel was available free-to-air and then subsequently was added to the ViewAsia package on 19 April 2010.[13] Colors was added to Virgin Media on 1 April 2011, as a part of the Asian Mela pack.[14] 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.[15]

Extension[edit]

The Viacom 18 only channels brought rights of Prism TV who produces 5 regional channels and recristened to Colors brand. It has been relaunched on their regional festivals.
