Star India is making quantum leaps in transforming sports in the country by leveraging the group’s strengths in superior content and audience engagement. Star’s sports business has grown rapidly to 12 channel properties with feeds in English and regional languages; and India’s first private free-to-air sports channel Star Sports First.

Star is set to drive the agenda on digital content consumption in the country with Hotstar, Star’s digital platform. Hotstar was launched in February 2015 to drive content consumption in India, and has quickly grown into India’s largest premium streaming platform with over 350 million downloads. Widely acknowledged as the creator and leader, Hotstar is already young India’s favoured destination for high quality content.

Since its founding in 1991, Star has played a major role in driving social change in India. Under the leadership of Chairman & CEO Uday Shankar, the company has become India’s leading media business by using its programming as a catalyst for social change. Star has helped address many societal issues through television to fuel women empowerment, promoting progressive mindsets or Nayi Soch (New Thinking) and sparking a sporting revolution creating the next generation of heroes. Star’s iconic talk show on India’s pressing concerns Satyamev Jayate (Truth Shall Prevail) has become the premier platform through which Indians can discuss social issues.  More recently, Star introduced Ted Talks India Nayi Soch using the power of television to spark creativity and innovation. Star supports a variety of social causes in India through its vibrant CSR programs. This achievement, combined with Star’s track record of cultivating forward-thinking programming, casts Star as a model for what a 21st century media business should look like—one that harnesses the power and reach of television to touch lives and create social change.
