The channel will also air VIVO Pro Kabaddi League Season 5 which will begin in Hyderabad on July 28. Its programme calendar will also include BCCI domestic cricket tournaments and domestic football tournaments, etc.

A Star India spokesperson said: “Television penetration in India has grown exponentially. We recognise that there is a very sizable subset of this universe that is not on conventional pay TV. In the `Free-to-air’ content that they have access to, sports content is mostly absent and only sporadically available. It is our belief that there is an eager appetite for it.”
