Sony SAB moves away from comedy positioning for slice-of-life stories

Moving away from being a comedy channel where there was light heartedness, frivolity, and fun, Sony SAB is at an important stage of evolution as it becomes a channel that tells stories which resonate with the everyday lives of people while catering to the entire family. Synonymous with diverse storytelling, its content captures the commitment to bringing real emotions and slice-of-life stories. Cementing this positioning, Sony SAB has launched a new brand campaign to mark a new chapter in its journey as a channel and brand. The channel aims to strengthen its emotional connection with its viewers through a philosophy based on the understanding that “Jo roz choti khushiya dete hai, wohi rishtey toh bade hote hai.”

Emerging as a forward-looking brand that deals with real problems of life, society and people, Sony SAB’s content approaches these issues with dignity and hope. Inspiring people to celebrate life by highlighting the small yet unforgettable moments, the channel promises to spread hope and positivity while keeping in mind the dynamic changes viewers are going through. Catering to the needs of every member of the family, as it shifts gears, the channel is steering towards offering more progressive content and will launch new shows in the coming months to further strengthen the brand’s position as a living room brand.

This is in addition to continuing to entertain its audiences with blockbuster shows like ‘Maddam Sir’, ‘Wagle Ki Duniya,’ ‘Pushpa Impossible,’ ‘Dharm Yoddha Garud,’ and the recently launched ‘Alibaba Dastaan-e-Kabul,’ as well as the evergreen ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’.

Neeraj Vyas, Business Head, Sony SAB, PAL, and Sony MAX Movie Cluster said, “Sony SAB is entering a new phase as the brand is undergoing metamorphosis with its content and brand strategy. We are looking for stories and insights from the daily lives of people. As creators we are constantly looking for new themes and new insights that reflect on the trends and what people are going through, staying ahead with consumers and their changing lives. The recently launched brand films will further help us cement our positioning as a brand that goes beyond just providing entertainment and helps us connect emotionally with our audiences on a much deeper level. As a channel we are forward-looking, catering to the diverse needs of the family and yet at the same time bringing them together.”

Vaishali Sharma, Marketing & Communications Head, Sony SAB, PAL and Sony MAX Movie Cluster added, “In today’s complex world we understand the meaning of using the insights of what relationship means to our viewers and we have mined a very powerful insight which helped us develop this campaign. The objective of the brand campaign is to strengthen our relationship with our consumers and to express how the brand interweaves itself into the life and emotions of people. The campaign is one such initiative in the journey of evolution for Sony SAB, and while content continues to make an impact, at a brand level we will continue to engage with people keeping this ethos in mind.”

Sony SAB is all set to enter the new phase, and the same is being introduced to the viewers through three heart-warming brand films. The channel is engaging in a massive television plan to promote the campaign which will roll out on 3rd November on air. The marketing plan also consists of a substantial digital leg.
