Zee rebranded the Ten Sports network on 29 March 2016, introducing a new slogan, Never stop. Ten Sports was renamed to Ten 1, Ten Action to Ten 2, Ten Cricket to Ten 3 and Ten HD to Ten 1 HD. The new logo style was on the basis of that of the now-defunct Ten Golf HD, which had rebranded in October 2015 after converting from a standard-definition (SD) channel into a high-definition (HD) channel.
