Star Sports is one of two main sports TV broadcasting networks in India, the other being Sony Pictures Sports Networks. It operated under the Star Sports, Star Cricket and ESPN brands before being rebranded with a single Star Sports brand until 2013.
Star Sports operates several television channels, five of them in high definition (including the Star Sports Select channels), as well as many more in Indian regional languages (all branded as Star Sports 1).
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.)
The Star Sports network underwent a minor rebrand on 28 May 2017, as several channels were renamed. The words Star Sports are now written in a single line.
