ESPN Asia is an Asian cable sports network owned by STAR TV and Fox International Channels in partnership with ESPN International. It is the official Asian station of the Premier League. It is available in Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Pakistan, Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Thailand and other Asian territories.

On January 28, 2013, ESPN Asia was renamed into Fox Sports Asia.[1] However, the ESPN brand is remained in China, India and South Asia.

ESPN has since refocused on its digital business building out online properties for football (ESPNFC), cricket (CricInfo), Formula 1 (ESPNF1), and Australian rugby union (ESPNscrum).[2]
