New Delhi: With Sony’s acquisition of Ten Sports from Zee, it has revamped its sports cluster. And joining hands with Sony is none other than little master Sachin Tendulkar. With Sony launching a new line of sports channels, Tendulkar will be the brand ambassador for Sony Pictures Sports Network. Being the brand ambassador, the former India skipper will also be a part of a series of television commercials.

In the first promotional video, the maestro talks about sports and how it teaches one to dream big. He also highlights Sony’s latest tagline – “Go Beyond.” The launch event was hosted by Harsha Bhogle, part of Sony’s commentary panel.

Post-acquisition the Ten Sports channels have been renamed SONY TEN. As reported by insidesport.co earlier, Sony did not kill the TEN branding. And the new channels are named as Sony Ten 1, Sony Ten 1 HD, Sony Ten 2, Sony Ten 2 HD, Sony Ten 3 and Sony Ten 3 HD. The revamp also includes the first dedicated Hindi Sports channels- Sony Ten 3 and Sony Ten 3 HD.
