Launched as UTV on August 16, 2005, it became E! on January 1, 2009[1] after an agreement between SBS and Comcast on September 5, 2008.[2] Using the E! brand under license from Comcast, its programming consisted of mostly those from E! U.S., but also carried programs from the South Korean counterpart, as well as the libraries of SBS. Number of programs from E! have been dropped since then.

The channel officially renamed to SBS E! on November 1, 2011, retaining only the red E! logo. The channel became SBS funE on January 1, 2014, completely dropping Comcast-owned brand.
