Disney International HD is an English entertainment channel in India that shows Disney Channel’s top-rated live-action shows and movies. It was originally launched in 2011 as UTV Stars, a Bollywood industry news and Hindi music channel; it was then rebranded as Bindass Play, a pure Hindi music channel. It was eventually rebranded as Disney International HD on 29 October 2017.

Despite its name, Disney International HD is not the Indian feed of any international channel; rather, the word international signifies the American content shown by the channel, rather than local Indian-produced content that is shown on Disney Channel’s Indian feed.
