After SPT UK Networks sold all its free-to-air channels to Narrative Capital, the four Sony-branded free-to-air channels in the UK adopted the GREAT! branding on 25 May 2021. As a result, Sony Channel was rebranded to GREAT! tv.

This also prevents confusion with the UK feeds of Sony Pictures Networks India’s Hindi-language channels, such as Sony Entertainment Television, which are popular among the UK’s Indian and Asian community.
