TNT was started in September 1997 by Mediamost holdings as the broadcast TV channel. After the liquidation of Mediamost in 2001, the channel fell into the hands of Gazprom-Media. Since 2003 TNT is oriented mainly on low-grade pop culture and cheap reality shows. They have three logo concepts. The first logo survived until 2002 and the second one until 2009.
1st Logo (2003-2008)
Logo: On a white background, we see three boxes, each colored red, blue and again red. Inside the boxes are the letters "THT".
Availability: Appeared on early series.
2nd Logo (2008-2012)
Logo: On a black background with some purple and pink bokeh lights, a bright light illuminates the center, turning the background white, then we zoom out to reveal three gold blocks with some decorative patterns and red and blue gem-borders reading "THT", and the logo shines.
