Star India has also decided to shed the ESPN brand in the country. The rebranded channel will be called Star Sports 4. Similarly, ESPN HD has been rebranded as Star Sports HD 2. The existing Star Sports channel will now be known as Star Sports 1 while Star Cricket HD will be rebranded as Star Sports HD 1.

So it goes like dis

Star Sports : Star Sports 1
Star Sports 2: Star Sports 2
Star Cricket : Star Sports 3
ESPN : Star Sports 4
Star Cricket HD: Star Sports 1 HD
ESPN HD: Star Sports 2 HD

Thats pretty much how it is in other countries with Sky, ESPN etc.
Bad for us, as it will allow them to shuffle content between channels for various series/events, forcing a lot of people to subscribe to all channels.

Hope they have designed a transparent logo this time.

Hmmm.. I am reading effective Nov 6 - Ind V WI test series. What about promos for that series - have they started the promos - any indication of the change there?

Ideally Star Sports 1 HD and Star Sports 2 HD should simulcast events same as Star Sports 1 and 2 respectively.
I wonder how Tata Sky would package these HD channels if somebody is not subscribed to Star Sports 3 and 4 :)

They shud seriously consider changing their logo. Current one is pathetic to say the least.

Nope.You can see the logo of ESPN sometimes changes in between and it says "is changing" and then "4 days to go" and then again back to "ESPN".That's what I've seen today.

Yeah. Full page ad in Times of India.

Do they really have content for 6 different channels? How much are they going to cost? 300 rupees?
