TEN SPORTS (or Taj Entertainment Network Sports) is a sports channel, widely broadcasted in Asia. Key programming includes Cricket, Football and Wrestling.

In 2005, TEN Sports was in legal struggles with Doordarshan for the telecast rights when Pakistan cricket team toured India. Later, the Supreme Court of India directed the official broadcaster to share feed with Doordarshan.

On the 12th of November 2006, Zee Network acquired 50% ownership of Taj Television for $57 million.

Taj Television's portfolio consists of the Ten Sports channel, television production and transmission services for broadcast clients such as DirecTV, ART, Starhub's Football Channel, Goal TV 1 and 2 , City 7 and Citruss TV.

The channel has come under criticism for showing some recorded events as "Live". In 2008, Ten Sports India purchased the rights to show the US Open Live on the channel, however they showed a recorded broadcast of the semifinals and the final instead of the Live event while still showing the 'Live' banner.
