Sun Bangla is a Bengali-language general entertainment channel in India, and the Sun network’s first TV channel not broadcasting in the four South Indian languages (Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam). It was launched on 3 February 2019 as a free-to-air channel, replacing Gemini News. It competes with Zee Bangla, Star Jalsha, Colors Bangla, Aakash Aath and Rupashi Bangla.
Another non-South Indian channel, Sun Marathi, will be launched later in 2020 after broadcasting as a test transmission throughout 2019–20.
