In April 2015, ETV Bangla rebranded to Colors Bangla after Reliance-owned Viacom18 acquired many ETV-branded channels from ETV Network.



Colors-branded channels introduced the new Colors logo a few months after the rebrand of the parent Colors on 10 April 2016. An HD version of Colors Bangla was launched on 2 May 2016 along with HD versions of Colors Kannada and Colors Marathi.
