No, these Star channels are real HD feed. See this artcle from

Star India has launched the high-definition feed of five of its network channels – Star Plus, Star Gold, Star movies, Star World and NGC.
“In the last 8-10 months, we have been investing not just in terms of financials, but also time and efforts in training and infrastructure. The result is Asli HD, which we can legitimately claim as the real HD with end-to-end transformation,” Star India CEO Udaya Shankar said.

Calling their channels Asli HD (Real HD), Star India claims it is the only network which offers Asli HD content that is shot in HD, recorded and edited in HD and mixed for 5.1 Dolby surround sound.

Star India has partnered with Dolby Laboratories to use Dolby Digital Plus for the 5.1 surround sound. “We are pleased to be working with Star TV to transform the sound of television entertainment in India,” said Dolby Laboratories VP Asia Pacific Mahesh Sundaram. “Dolby Digital Plus brings cinematic surround sound for movies and stunningly realistic sound for television programs so Star TV viewers can enjoy their favourite content as the artists intended.”

Shankar, however stressed that HD is not an end game but an intermediate stop for Star towards improving viewing experience.

All the five channels will bear the mark of HD on their respective channel logos.

However, the channels are at present available only on Tata Sky HD platform and Star is in talks with other DTH providers for carriage. has confirmed with Tata Sky that the DTH platform has added the channels to its HD pack, which already has NGC and Discovery apart from the IPL HD feed. "The HD pack is charged at Rs 50 per month and there is no plan to increase the price, Tata Sky CMO Vikram Mehra said.

Meanwhile, star Den has priced the channels at Rs 16 (NGC), Rs 20 (Star World), Rs 30 (Star Plus) and Rs 34 (Star Movies and Star Gold).


New HD Logo
But in my way old logo is better from new one:no:
HD quality of All new STAR channels are awesome ....

5/5 for video and sound quality ..... :dance3:

My stb firmware upgraded to march 2011 but no visible change...... :whistle:
I feel the deterioration of HD quality in Star Movies HD over the past few months may be due to too much compression. Those who have 2 DTH connections may compare and respond .
Whether it is same with other DTH also.
Soorya, it will be better if you'll read the rules before posting. Bumping 2 years old thread is not good. Do follow rules if you like to stay here.
