This also means that existing 11 Star channels which were going to shut down will continue for the time being.
Disney-Star’s new channels are largely in regional languages in the sports and movie genres, as well as a number of kids’ channels. On the other hand, a number of English channels and many of Disney’s channels before its acquisition of Star will go off air.
Star’s new prices are cheaper in contrast to Sony’s RIO.
Disney-Star will finally have a Marathi movie channel, which was its only missing regional movie market. Meanwhile Sony has a long history of shutting down niche channels.
The Academy Awards will be broadcasted in India on Star Movies, Star World, Star Movies Select, Star World Premiere, and Disney+ Hotstar on April 26 from 5.30 am IST. The ceremony will also have repeat telecast from 8.30pm IST the same day.
