Channel V India (styled Channel [V] India) was an Indian television channel affiliated to the international Channel V. The channel owned by STAR India and 21st Century Fox broadcasts a mix of music and original fiction programs.[2] From an international music channel in its early days to a Bollywood music driven one to a youth oriented entertainment is the path it has taken.[2]

On 1 July 2012, Channel V India discontinued music programming. It started focusing on original content through fiction dailies and studio formats that addressed youth issues.[3] However On June 30, 2016 the channel discontinued fiction dailies and studio formats and went back to 24-hours music channel format.[4]

On August 1, 2016 the channel changed its look and logo and continued music programming which plays latest Indian and International hits catering to the tastes of the discerning Indian youth.[5] The channel was shut down on 15 September 2018 and has been replaced with Star Sports 3.[1]
