Zing is a youth entertainment channel in India owned by the Zee network, similar to MTV, Bindass and the erstwhile Channel V. It was launched in 1997 as Music Asia, then rebranded to Zee Muzic in 2000, and adopted its current name in 2009.
Besides youth programming, it also shows music shows, like its sister channel Zee ETC Bollywood, which shut down on 17 October 2020. A similar comparison can be drawn between Viacom18’s MTV and MTV Beats.

The 2005 logo was revived.
The gap in the top right corner of the Z was closed and the swoosh within it was modified. This was also done by all other Zee channels and properties.
Even after the rest of the Zee network rebranded on 15 October 2017 with a new logo scheme, Zing’s logo remains unchanged and it continues to use Zee’s 2011–17 logo to this day.
