Star Gold 2 is a Hindi movie channel in India owned by the Star TV network. Originally launched in 2012 as Movies OK, it rebranded on 1 February 2020 along with Star Gold. It serves as a sister channel to Star Gold, Star Gold Select and Star Utsav Movies, as well as the upcoming Star Gold Thrills and Star Gold Romance.
Launched on 6 May 2012, Movies OK was the second and last Star India channel to use the OK brand targeted at an urban audience, the first being Hindi general entertainment channel Life OK, which was launched on 18 December 2011.
The logo and graphics package were slightly modified around 2017.
Star Gold 2
Movies OK was renamed to Star Gold 2 at midnight on 1 February 2020, officially signifying the retirement of Star’s OK brand, as sister channel Life OK had rebranded to Star Bharat in 2017. Simultaneously, an HD feed of Star Gold 2 was launched (though it is not officially available on any television platforms as of August 2020), and Star Gold rebranded for the first time in eight years. Star Gold 2 uses the same graphics as Star Gold that were introduced on that day, but with a greenish shade.
An HD version was supposed to be launched at the same time. After several delays, it was scheduled to be launched on 1 December 2021, along with UTV Movies, UTV Action and UTV HD being replaced by Star Gold Romance and Star Gold Thrills on that day. However, on 26 November 2021, these launches were indefinitely postponed, due to a delay in the TRAI’s new tariff rules. They are now expected to launch some time in 2022.
