Default Star renames the sports channels in India

Star network has renamed all its sports channels as Star Sports

Star Sports 1 : current Star Sports
Star Sports 2 : current Star Sports 2
Star Sports 3 : current Star Cricket
Star Sports 4 : current ESPN

Star Sports HD1 : current Star Sports HD
Star Sports HD2 : current ESPN HD

With this, I guess the legendary "ESPN" name would be retired. RIP

This could be good or bad for motor sports coverage - it could mean cricket coverage encroaching into all the channels or the relatively lower possibility of other sports getting some screen time in one of the channels.

Too much of recorded cricket is shown on all sports channels. Atleast they could use the HD ones to show live action.
Is it just a name change or ESPN has been bought out?

This was bound to happen. ESPNStar sports was bought out by News Corp under their Fox sports banner.

Thanks. I couldn't verify HD channels since I haven't subscribed those. I could only verify SS1-4. Please check HD1 and HD2 if you have them.
