A day after the ICC World Cup 2019 final, Star Sports will add one more channel to the bouquet of its regional network. Star Sports Marathi, the sixth edition in Star Sports regional portfolio, will go on air on July 15 (Monday).
Star Sports had got the MIB nod earlier this year to name the Star Movies and Star Movies Kids HD channels as Star Sports 1 Bangla and Star Sports 1 Marathi. While Star Sports Bangla was launched in March, the plans for the Marathi regional channels for sports were delayed. It was earlier expected to go on air in time for the ICC World Cup 2019.
Hi! Star Sports 1 Marathi will launch on July 15.
