Background

Sony Pictures Television Networks is a division of Sony Pictures Television that broadcasts programs on the SPT Networks.

1st Logo (2012)

Logo: It's the same as the long version of the Sony Pictures Television logo; however, "NETWORKS" is below the word "TELEVISION".

Technique: Same as the SPT logo.

Music/Sounds: The long version of the SPT music.

Availability: Seen on Mexico's Next Top Model.


2nd Logo (October 13, 2016-Late 2010s)

Logo: The Sony Corporation logo animates the way that it does in the SPT logo. However, the flash reveals the bars of the logo forming. The text fades in below and the entire logo zooms out to the center of the screen, with a blue light in the bottom right corner.

Technique: The bars forming, the text fading in, and the logo zooming back.

Music/Sounds: The short version of the SPT music that comes after the flash.

Availability: First appeared on season 5 of The Amazing Race Asia on AXN Asia, and formally appeared on The Apartment: Rising Stars Edition on Sony Channel Asia, which is their first original TV series. It also appears on season 2 of Asia's Got Talent on AXN Asia, but this logo was allegedly retired as Sony Channel Asia shut down in 2019 and the Asian feed of AXN was sold to KC Global Media, a company of former Sony Pictures Entertainment executives Andy Kaplan and George Chien, in January 2020.

Legacy: Not too lavish, but it may be a nice change of breath from the usual SPT logo.
