Star One was an Indian television youth channel that primarily broadcast Hindi entertainment based in Mumbai. It was launched on 1 November 2004. Part of News Corporation's Star TV network in Asia and distributed to worldwide by Fox International Channels, Star One was one of India's most popular general entertainment channels, which, in addition to sister network Colors, Star Plus, also include Sony Entertainment Television, Zee TV, Imagine TV, SAB, and Sahara One. In November 2006, Star One, along with Star Gold launched in the UK on Sky Digital channel 829 before moving to 783, it was expected that Star One would arrive on Freeview, Freesat, TalkTalk TV, WightCable and Smallworld Cable launching in January 2013.
Star One ceased its operation on 18 December 2011. This channel was then rebranded as Life OK, and launched by Star Network on 18 December 2011. There were talks of carrying on the two popular shows on the replacement channel, but these did not pan out.
Star One continued to air in the UK and Ireland until 28 May 2012, when it was rebranded as Star Life OK. The old frequency (still labelled as "Star One") is currently displaying a blue screen with no now/next programme banner.
