Star sports to launch 4 New channels, regional language permission granted

Star sports gets permission to broadcast in regional language and also will launch 4 more new channels :@:@:@
Espn,espn Hd,star sports highlights, star cricket asia.

Regional languages have received a great thrust with the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) granting sports broadcaster Star Sports the permission to telecast in all regional languages.

The languages are Assamese, Bengali, Bodi, Dogri, Gujarati, Kannada, Kashmiri, Konkani, Maithili, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Nepali, Sanskrit, Santhali, Sindhi Tamil, Telugu, Urdu and any other language as permitted under the Constitution of India. The permission to uplink has been given for Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 3, Star Sports 4, Star Sports HD 1 and Star Sports HD 2.

The sports broadcaster has also got the licence to come up with four new sports channels: ESPN, ESPN HD, Star Sports Highlights and Star Cricket Asia. These four new channels too have been granted permission to uplink in the regional languages permitted under the Constitution.

The sports broadcaster, which broke away from the joint venture with ESPN Software India in 2012, was until now downlinking from Hong Kong and Singapore. Now with the permissions, the uplinking will be done from Noida, with a backup from Mumbai.

With regard to the brand name ESPN, according to Star India sources, Star Sports still has the permission to use the name since the licence was applied before the JV between Star Sports and ESPN ended.

It is also learnt that after initiatives like the Pro Kabaddi League and the Hero Indian Super League, Star Sports will be promoting other national sports and therefore create its own IP’s.

The broadcaster had applied for licences in several regional languages for ‘operational feasibility’ and will decide over a period of time when to provide content in regional languages.

With the new licences, Star Sports now has a total of 10 channels under its bouquet: Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 3, Star Sports 4, Star Sports HD 1, Star Sports HD 2, ESPN, ESPN HD, Star Sports Highlights and Star Cricket Asia.

    First of all the awards are meant for Vijay TV shows produced in Tamil and they are giving awards to all the shows anyway. So what is there to praise themselves that they achieved something to get this award(They didn’t compete with other TV channels programs)?

  7. dish can add those channels as it has abundant space but what about rest?

  8. either way, the subscribers are the sufferers

  9. Just like most demanded STAR CJ Alive 2 added without any tension 😆

    But if its added then we have to shel more :s if not then we have to cry :verysad:

    No option :@

  10. no, it wont sign new one, but as they might have signed new one recently these channels could also be in it.

  11. Already dishtv settles thing with STAR :s

    I don’t think dishtv will be ready to sign the new agreement again :-/ :verysad:

  12. 😀 , if they launch soon then it might come in fresh agreement

  13. More Sports channels :@:@

    Now STAR again found the way to screw dishtv 🙁

  14. yes, now lot of cricketing action on it too, but sometimes it is boring to see same things repeated all over the channels 3, 4 are just waste to me

  15. ^the contents are spreaded across the channels so that viewers are forced to subscribe all the channels.

  16. not anymore 🙁 already boring repeated hightlights on those star sports network most of the day

  17. vijay tv reality shows participants are from the channel itself.

  18. I hope they don’t start a Tamil channel. One Vijay TV is enough for Tamil Nadu. From Super singers, Jodi No.1 to serials all are mostly sub standard. Singing competition on Sun TV looks lot lot better in comparison.

    In serials again Sun TV serials though all boring atleast the background RR musics are great which is again not worth in Vijay TV apart from acting skills too 😀
