With the acquisition of Star by The Walt Disney Company India in March 2019, Hungama is now a sister channel of the Star Sports channels. It will air the opening match and all weekend matches of Season 12 of the Indian Premier League, which started on 23 March 2019, thus making it the first children’s channel to do so.1
