According to a statement released by the company, "The behaviour of sports watching audiences, who are trendy and youthful in nature, has evolved over the years, and it becomes crucial for us to be in sync with the audience. Hence, the new network logo binds the new coming-of-age, sports watching audience with the new network branding activity."
