Star Movies is an Indian English-language movie channel that shows Hollywood movies. Its competitors in India include Sony Pix, &flix, HBO, Movies Now, WB and MNX, among others. Star Movies’ sister English movie channel is Star Movies Select HD, which shows arthouse and critically-acclaimed movies. Another sister channel, Star Movies Action, was launched in 2013 but shut down in 2017.
Besides India, the channel airs in the Middle East and China. The Star Movies brand was also used in Hong Kong, Taiwan (SD version) and Southeast Asia until 2017–18. (See Star Movies for information.)
Star Movies introduced a new logo and look on 1 January 2009. The logo and graphics package in India has remained unchanged for more than a decade since then. However, Star Movies in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong rebranded twice (for most of those countries): first to Fox Movies Premium in 2012 and then to Fox Movies in 2017.
HD (India): 2011–present
Star Movies launched an HD feed on 15 April 2011 along with Star Plus, Star Gold and Star World. These channels, along with National Geographic Channel HD (which had been launched in 2010), were branded by the Star network as Asli HD (real HD) channels, since India had only just been introduced to high-definition television in 2010.
