Not to be confused with Star Sports 1 Hindi, which was known as Star Sports 3 from 2013 to 2017.
In November 2017 Star India decided to shut down Channel V India and launch a dedicated Kannada-language sports channel, Star Sports 1 Kannada, in its place. However, since the broadcasting licence of Star Sports 1 Kannada was awarded only in May 2018, Star's plan to rebrand Channel V to Star Sports 1 Kannada was put on hold. Therefore, Channel V resumed its youth drama shows on 1 November 2017.
However, in August 2018, Star decided not to have a dedicated Kannada sports channel for the time being. Instead, it launched Star Sports 3 on 15 September 2018, replacing Channel V. Nevertheless, Star launched Star Sports 1 Kannada separately on 29 December 2018.
