STAR World in Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East introduced a new logo and look on 22 December 2008. It was the first channel to drop the old logo scheme of the STAR TV Network (the name of the channel next to the Star logo icon, contained within a rectangle with two opposite corners rounded) that had been used throughout the 2000s. This logo was still used by the Indian feed until its upcoming shutdown in December 2021; see Star World (India).

Launched:  2 August 2013

On 2 August 2013, STAR World was given a new look and logo. In the Philippines, the logo was adopted in November 2013. The new graphics package was designed by Argentine design agency Eloisa.

As of 2021, this look is still being used by the Middle Eastern version of Star World, which continues to be on air unlike its defunct Southeast Asian and Indian counterparts.

In January 1, 2022, this logo is currently being used by the second incarnation of Star World Taiwan formerly known as FOX Taiwan.

2015–2017

This slight change debuted in early 2015, as the Star got sleeker and glossy effect was added. Furthermore, the graphics are much sharper, with the channel bug animating with the use of a slash crossing through the center of the logo. In 2017, the whole logo turned grey.

On 1 October 2017, STAR World's operations in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong were replaced by Fox Life. Meanwhile, STAR World was still broadcasting in Taiwan (until 2020), the Middle East and North Africa, as well as the separate Indian feed (operated by the sister company Star India), which retained the 2008 logo until its upcoming shutdown in December 2021.
