STAR World is an Asian English language cable and satellite television owned by STAR TV. The channel is the successor of STAR Plus, which is now an Indian Hindi/Urdu language entertainment channel. Star World syndicates several popular shows from the United States and United Kingdom to appeal to the English-speaking population of the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia.


Before STAR World, STAR Plus was STAR's English language entertainment channel which has started its operations on 1992 and its Hindi counterpart is Zee TV. But after STAR ended their partnership with Zee TV (now "Zee Telefilms, Ltd."), STAR Plus has been changed to Hindi language and had launched STAR World.

Some of the shows originate from the United States, but there is also programming from United Kingdom.
