STAR Vijay (Tamil: ஸ்டார் விஜய்; commonly known as Vijay TV) is an Indian entertainment channel broadcasting in Tamil, also available in several other nations. The channel is owned by Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox through STAR TV and Fox International Channels. After being founded by N. P. V. Ramaswamy Udayar in 1994 and later acquired by Vijay Mallya and UTV Software Communications, the channel has been co-owned since 2001 by STAR TV and Fox International Channels, which are subsidiaries of 21st Century Fox, owned by Rupert Murdoch.

STAR Vijay has produced numerous popular reality shows, including Jodi Number One, Airtel Super Singer, Neeya Naana, Adhu Idhu Edhu, Neengalum Vellalaam Oru Kodi and Nadanthathu Enna. STAR Vijay went on to sponsor Yuvan Shankar Raja's first live in concert in Chennai.

The annual Vijay Awards ceremony, commemorating artistic and technical achievements in Tamil cinema, has been hosted by STAR Vijay since its inception in 2006.

In most of the movies in Vijay TV, instances of bloodshed are blurred in order to reduce violence.
