Sun TV is a regional Indian cable television station. It is the flagship channel of the Chennai-based Sun Network. It was founded and currently owned by Kalanidhi Maran.

It was the first fully privately owned television channel in India when it emerged in 1992. It is the most viewed Tamil television channel in the world, with syndicated broadcasts in several countries, such as the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada. It remained privately held until 2006, when it was listed on two Indian stock exchanges, the National Stock Exchange of India and the Bombay Stock Exchange.

The channel broadcasts a variety of shows, such as numerous soap operas, game shows, newscasts, and shows of general entertainment. Sun TV also hosts numerous film-industry–related events in Tamil Nadu and, as of 2011, host the Sun Kudumbam Awards ceremony annually. The channel recently won an award for being the best general entertainment channel in the Asian continent. Sun TV has been accused by some Hindus of being biased against Hindus, and by the Nithyananda Foundation of slander.
