Star Plus (the spelling preferred by the channel is StarPlus, in camel case) is a Hindi GEC (a term used in India to denote a general entertainment channel); it has been so since July 2000. It is the flagship channel of the Star TV network and one of the most-watched TV channels in India, as well as the most popular pay-TV channel across all languages. From its launch in 1991 until 2000, it was an English GEC, after which Star World took up that role.
The main competitors of Star Plus and its sister channel Star Bharat are Zee TV, Sony TV, Colors, Sony Sab and &TV, as well as free-to-air channels like Dangal.
On 14 June 2010, during the Star Parivaar Awards, Star Plus introduced a new logo, the Ruby Star, and a new graphics package and slogan: Rishta Wahi, Soch Nayi (Same Relationship, New Thinking). This was the first rebrand in nine years.
The new look was created by the London-based design agency venturethree, which also designed the graphics for fellow Hindi GEC Life OK (now Star Bharat) in 2011, and Bengali GEC Star Jalsha’s Diamond Star graphics in 2012 (inspired by Star Plus’s Ruby Star).
Fedra Sans Alternate was introduced as the on-screen typeface of the channel and was later extended to Star Jalsha in 2012 and Marathi GEC Star Pravah in 2014.
A fresh look was introduced on 7 November 2016. The tagline was shortened to simply Nayi Soch (New Thinking), and the channel now referred to itself in all-uppercase (i.e., STAR PLUS rather than Star Plus). In this period Star Plus's brand positioning was heavily focused on female empowerment, and the female protagonists of its shows featured in its break bumpers.
However, this women-oriented look was short-lived, and was done away with in May 2018. As in 2010, the rebrand was done by Venturethree, with Fedra Sans Alternate continuing as the corporate typeface.
Another new look and graphics package was introduced on the final of Season 11 of the Indian Premier League, on 27 May 2018 (the channel was an official sponsor of the IPL that year). The tagline was revised to Rishta Wahi, Baat Nayi (Same Relationship, New Conversations), and the channel now writes its name in camel case (StarPlus). Though no specific credit was given for the motion graphics, the new brand identity was conceptualised by Sparkt, an Indian branding agency.
The logo’s red colour was retained, but the new graphics package, consisting of squares tilted at a 45° angle, is predominantly white with accents of red and gold. The on-screen typeface changed from Fedra Sans Alternate to Kohinoor, though Foco is used in the logo (as well as the logos of Star Maa and Star Suvarna since late 2020).
- Following the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India’s changes in TV channel packaging and pricing in 2018–2019, Star Plus has become the most-watched Hindi pay-tv channel, but it falls short of free-to-air channels such as Dangal, which is owned by a small broadcaster and yet has more viewers due to its presence on the government’s DD Free Dish platform.
