Star Suvarna is the main Kannada-language general entertainment channel of the Star TV network in India. It was launched in 2007 as Asianet Suvarna and was acquired by Star the following year, along with Malayalam sister channels Asianet and Asianet Plus. It rebranded to Star Suvarna in 2016, and an HD feed was launched in 2017. Its competitors include Udaya TV, Colors Kannada, Zee Kannada, Colors Super and Siri Kannada.
On 25 July 2016, Asianet Suvarna adopted the Star branding. The logo is similar to that used by Star Jalsha at the time, and, later, Star Maa Movies. Sister movie channel Star Suvarna Plus rebranded at the same time with a similar logo which has violet instead of red.
An HD feed was launched on 15 July 2017, almost a year after the rebrand to Star Suvarna. This came a few weeks after an HD feed of Star Maa Movies was launched on 25 June 2017.
