STAR World India is a 24-hour English language television channel owned by STAR TV and Fox International Channels, two fully owned subsidiaries of 21st Century Fox. The channel primarily airs popular shows from the United States, United Kingdom and sometimes Australia along with some local shows to appeal to the English-speaking population of India and other South Asian countries. An HD simulcast of the channel was started in April 2011. The channel focuses on 14-35 year old urban population, with 24-year-old working professionals being its primary target demographic.

When the channel was first launched on 15 December 1991 as Star TV, it was an English language television channel showing international content from the US, UK and Australia, with Zee TV being the Hindi-language channel. However, after STAR (subsequently acquired by News Corporation) ended its relationship with Zee TV, Star Plus was transformed into a Hindi-language channel, with STAR World becoming the network's English-language channel. In 2011, Star India started broadcasting STAR World in HD. This channel also broadcasts in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
