Star World Premiere is a 24-hour English language television channel owned by Star India and Disney Channels Asia Pacific, two fully owned subsidiaries of The Walt Disney Company. The channel primarily airs popular shows from the United States along with United Kingdom and Australia to the English-speaking population of India. It also used to broadcast in Sri Lanka (replacing Star Movies HD due to lack of programming and competition of other channels there), but was later pulled out of that region. The channel focuses on the 25 to 34-year-old urban population, who are interested in the latest US TV shows. It broadcasts in HD only. It is a premium and ad-free channel and is available as À la carte as well as in various Bouquets/Packs to cable and satellite providers.[1][2][3]


The channel usually airs US and UK TV series along with other international programming. Later, these shows aired in syndication on its sister channel Star World India.
