STAR News (with STAR capitalised, as was the norm until the mid-2000s) was launched on 18 February 1998 as a five-year joint venture between STAR TV (now Star TV) and Indian news media company NDTV. Star took full control of the channel in 2003 and turned it into STAR News, a 24-hour Hindi news channel.
