Zee Bangla is a Bengali (Bangla)-language general entertainment channel (GEC) and currently the most popular Bengali channel since June 2018[1], when it overtook Star Jalsha, which had been the most-watched channel for nine years (2009–2018).

It was launched in 1999 as Alpha TV Bangla, in line with Zee’s other regional-language channels at the time (i.e., Alpha TV Marathi, Telugu, Gujarati and Punjabi, of which the last two are defunct), and renamed to Zee Bangla in 2005.

Zee Bangla underwent a rebranding on 7 October 2018. A new graphics package was introduced, which is the same ‘ripple’ graphics package that is used by Zee TV as well as four South Indian GECs, but in red instead of orange. Zee Bangla, like competitor Star Jalsha (until 2019), has generally used the colour red in its on-air appearance, so the 2017 logo remained unchanged (unlike in the case of the four South Indian GECs, which all became orange to match Zee TV).
