Movies OK is a hindi movie television channel broadcast in India.[1] It is owned by Star TV and Fox International Channels. The channel was launched on 6 May 2012.[2] It is Star's second hindi movie channel, the first being STAR Gold which was launched in 2000. It is also the second channel to be branded under the OK brand rather than the STAR brand after Life OK, a general entertainment channel which was launched in December 2011 to replace STAR One.[3] Before the launch of Movies OK, STAR acquired Viacom 18's movie portfolio, paving the way for the launch of the new channel.[4] Monday to Sunday 6:00 am & 9:00 pm

A UK version of Movies OK titled "Star Movies OK" (to represent the Star Life OK Brand) has been launched in November 2012, with Star Gold HD and Star Life OK HD.

Canadian media company Asian Television Network rebranded its ATN Zee Cinema channel into a domestic version of the channel titled ATN Movies OK on July 25, 2012, under a brand licensing agreement with STAR.[5]
