Star Cricket also broadcasted Hockey league once I guess, that was weird too
Now time for TEN SPORTS to rebrand themselves as well?
BTW New LOGO is very very bad and large, and its even more large on HD channel, and distracting due to animation between old and new logo.
I also would like to point out how cleverly they already had people subscribing to Star Cricket (maybe even on long term?) and suddenly its now a Hindi 24x7 common Sports channel, and how some cricket content is now moved to Star Sports 2, which is not beaming/not subscribed yet on many platforms.
Agree. The thread should ideally be called 'Star Sports rebrands its channel line-up'.
Also, is this rebranding limited to India or does it extend to SEA?

In the good old days, AIR used to broadcast tamil commentary on Madras A station for test matches at Chennai. That was better than the commentary available on TV.
It's time we have an option of separate feeds with and without commentary. Muting is not an option. I just don't want to listen to Ravi Sastri or LS but I want to hear the crowds and the players. That way, I won't lose the atmosphere.
