SBT (abbreviated from Sistema Brasileiro de Televisão) is a Brazilian television network owned by Grupo Silvio Santos. It was formed in 1981 with three former-Rede Tupi stations (Channel 4 from São Paulo and Channels 5 from Porto Alegre and from Belém, TVS from Rio de Janeiro, and TV Alterosa from Minas Gerais, and other 8 affiliated stations. All 4 owned-stations were branded as TVS until 1988.
These logos were used in the early years of the SBT, from 1981 to 1985.
In 1985, a new logo was released. The logo was a ring with the text "sbt", in gold or blue, depending on the ident.
In 1988, SBT, alongside TVS, changed its logo design to one of its most famous in its history, which contains mult-colored stripes forming a circle where the text "sbt" sits on. SBT also phased out the TVS brand entirely during that year replacing it with the unified SBT branding.
In 1995, SBT removed the colors for a black logo with white gradients. It closely resembles the ABC logo.
In 1996, SBT, in celebration of its 15th year, reinstated the colors, but this time, in the form of solid gradient colors. The main logo consisted of only red, green, and blue as its colors, but on station idents, the amount of colors are increased from three to six with the addition of three more colors, orange, yellow, and purple. It was also launched alongside a special animation in which the colors were rotating clockwise or counterclockwise, which lasted until 2004. One of the variations of this logo contained dots generated by light, resembling a disco ball.
On-air logo - with a color scheme slightly different from the main logo used in all the idents from that period.
For its 20th year anniversary, the logo lost the flat-disc-like appearance from the previous one, giving place to a more concave and chromed form.
This logo shares the same traits as the previous logo but lacks the distinct animation the previous logo was known for.
In 2012, the logo gained small but noticeable effects, such as the text was modified, and the reflections on the sphere were modified.
This logo marks one of the biggest revamps on SBT's logo in its history, dropping all 3D effects in favor of a minimalist, 2D, and flat logo, but keeping the colors of the previous logo. (Four months before, its rival Rede Globo also launched a new logo, in an effort to release a streamlined look that approaches minimalist 2D design). In an awkward fashion, the logo resembles or is inspired by the icon of the Photos app of iOS from iOS 7 onwards.
The new version of the SBT logo became effective on August 17th, 2014, at 11:30am BRT.
