Starworld New Frequency 2021 on Es’hail 2 at 25.8°E
Star World (formerly known as StarPlus) is an English language entertainment television channel originally launched on 15 December 1991 by Star TV in Hong Kong as StarPlus. In July 2000, the channel rebranded Star World in East and Southeast Asia, when it retained the Star Plus name in India and the Middle East. However, after Star (subsequently acquired by News Corporation) ended its partnership with Zee TV in July 2000, Star Plus was transformed into a Hindi-language channel, with Star World being introduced in the region as an English entertainment replacement.
The channel’s programming line-up mostly consists of entertainment television programmes from the United States, the United Kingdom and sometimes Australia and New Zealand to appeal to English-speaking locals as well as the expatriate population of South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia.

Star World was first launched on 15 December 1991 as StarPlus was an English language general entertainment channel showing international television shows from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, with Zee TV being the Hindi language general entertainment channel counterpart operated the channel joint venture with Zee Telefilms which uplinked Hindi channel Zee TV from Hong Kong. The channel was broadcast across the continent of Asia, reaching from the Far East to the Middle East, as with AsiaSat 1’s footprint. Star TV have since regionalised the channel to serve its huge viewerships.
In July 2000, Star TV split Star Plus’ beam into two, in effect, providing two separate services for different regional audiences within Star TV’s footprint. This enabled the channel to provide appropriate programming and viewing time for viewers from different regions in Asia. Star Plus would serve viewers in India and the Middle East from then on, while the new Star World channel welcomed those in East and Southeast Asia. Star TV converted Star Plus into Hindi entertainment channel, and introduced Star World as English entertainment replacement in India and the Middle East. Earlier, Star TV had a joint venture with Zee Telefilms which uplinked Hindi channel Zee TV from Hong Kong. But that partnership was ended.
