Sananda TV shut down 15 months after its launch on 7 November 2012. Thus, ABP's presence in the television entertainment space also ended. This was declared by Sananda TV through several advertisements days before it shut down. The reason for the closure was that Sananda TV could not make an impact in a market, which has been dominated by other Bengali entertainment channels like Star Jalsha, Zee Bangla and ETV Bangla.[5]
