Star World Premiere is a 24-hour English language television channel owned by STAR TV and Fox International Channels, two fully owned subsidiaries of 21st Century Fox. The channel primarily airs popular shows from the United States along with United Kingdom and Australia to the English-speaking population of India. It also used to broadcast in Sri Lanka (replacing Star Movies HD due to lack of programming and competition of other channels there), but was later pulled out of that region. The channel focuses on the 25 to 34-year-old urban population, who are interested in the latest US TV shows. It broadcasts in HD only. It is a premium and ad-free channel and is only available as À la carte to cable and satellite providers.[1][2][3]


The channel usually airs US and UK TV series along with other international programming. Later, these shows aired in syndication on its sister channel Star World India.
