In 2006, the founders of RHI reacquired Hallmark Entertainment and reverted back to its previous RHI moniker. The company had good relationships with the Hallmark Channel, of which RHI was a partner until 2008, and ion Television, who had aired RHI's telemovies until the late 2000s. In 2011, Halmi stepped down as president and CEO of RHI, and a year later in March 2012, RHI Entertainment became Sonar Entertainment, with Stewart Till taking over.

1st Logo (Early 2006-2007)

Logo: On a black background, we see the text "RHI ENTERTAINMENT" in the same font as the Hallmark Entertainment logo, with "RHI" being larger than the letters.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: None or the end theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variant: On a print of End of Summer, the Hallmark Entertainment theme is heard due to bad plastering.

Availability: This was originally used as a placeholder logo, and it was originally designed to plaster Hallmark, RHI and Qintex logos. It was seen on Though None Go with Me, among others. It was later revived for Secret in the Walls. The logo was later followed by the Sonar Entertainment logo on modern prints.

2nd Logo (2007-January 2, 2012)

Logo: On a black background, we see several blue lights that reveal the text "RHI ENTERTAINMENT" in a chromed Times New Roman font, with "RHI" being larger on the top. The light continues throughout the logo.


  • Short and shorter versions exists.
  • On ion Television prints, the logo was cropped to 4:3.
  • A print version of the logo (with a rectangle) appears on some TV movies like Ferocious Planet and Roadkill'.

Technique: Computer animation.

Music/Sounds: A five note piano tune combined with some small whooshing sounds, followed by an orchestral finish, or the ending theme of the movie.

Music/Sounds Variants: On current prints of Lonesome Dove, this logo uses the Qintex music due to plastering the Qintex Entertainment logo.

Availability: Uncommon. It was last seen on shows and TV movies that they produced until 2012. It plasters the Hallmark Entertainment and Qintex Entertainment logos on their prints of their movies and shows, such as the ion Television airing of Journey to the Center of the Earth. This logo is retained on current prints followed by the Sonar Entertainment logo.

3rd Logo (2011)

Logo: On a blue spotlight background, we see a blue gradient TV tube with the letters "RHI" behind the tube, with "ENTERTAINMENT" below. The logo slowly zooms out.

Technique: Computer animation.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the TV movie.

Availability: Seen only on Possessing Piper Rose.
