Star Gold 2 is a Hindi movie channel that was launched on 1 February 2020 as a renaming of Movies OK, along with the launch of an HD feed. It serves as a sister channel to Star Gold, Star Gold Select and Star Utsav Movies, as well as UTV Movies, UTV HD and UTV Action. The new channel will show movie premieres along with Star Gold.
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, launched in December 2011.
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, 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.
