Star Sports underwent a major rebrand on 6 November 2013. The rebrand was commissioned by London-based creative agency venturethree, which had previously rebranded the Star TV network, Star Plus, Life OK and Star Jalsha. Star Cricket and ESPN were renamed to Star Sports 3 and Star Sports 4, respectively. Further, the online portal StarSports.com was rebranded (it has since been merged into Hotstar).

The graphics package used across all channels consists of flying shafts of colour. Nobel is the on-screen typeface. (In 2017, Fox Movies in Southeast Asia adopted this font.)
