starsports1kannadaStar India’s long overdue Kannada sports channel Star Sports 1 Kannada is all set to launch on 29 December. The launch comes close on the heels of the launch of Star Sports 1 Telugu on 7 December.

Like Star Sports 1 Telugu, the Kannada sports channel also carries an MRP of Rs 19.

Star Sports 1 Kannada has been in the works for more than a year now. In fact, Star had got the approval to launch the channel in April this year. The original plan was to shut down Channel V and launch Star Sports 1 Kannada as a replacement. Channel V was indeed shut down, however, Star Sports 1 Kannada launch was held up due to lack of regulatory approval.

Star India MD Sanjay Gupta had recently said that Star Sports 1 Kannada will be launched shortly followed by Star Sports 1 Malayalam, Star Sports 1 Bengali, and Star Sports 1 Marathi. The broadcaster currently has three regional sports channels namely Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1 Tamil, and Star Sports 1 Telugu.
