Yeah, I too feel ESPN sounds better. I suppose this also means the end of the Sportscenter brand. Sad. I wonder if ESPN HD will be Star Sports HD...

All this renaming exercise arises from stakeholders dropping stakes, partnerships getting dissolved etc.

Like ESPN is known as Fox Sports elsewhere, Star Network chose to make it secondary sports channel Star Sports 2 in India.

In the past NDTV had parted ways leaving only the now defunct Imagine TV as a standalone entity.

When they rebranded Fox History to Fox Traveller, they showed banners saying Fox History will be Fox Traveller. On the other hand, this banner says, Star Sports 2 coming soon which is similar to the banners they were showing before launching ESPN HD and Star Cricket HD.

So Star Sports 2 would probably be a new sports channel altogether. As to what they will rebrand ESPN to is anybody's guess... it could be Fox Sports as in rest of asia or maybe Star Sports 3... I believe its a good idea to have 1 umbrella name for all sports channels like they have in UK (Sky Sports 1,2,3 and 4) and they can rebrand their channels to Star Sports 1, 2, 3, etc. removing the Star Cricket branding as well...

I feel its very unlikely that a new sports channel is going to be launched. Although, I'd love it since they are having a very hard time juggling 3-4 football leagues, cricket among others. And who knows what's going to happen after F1 starts.

As far as Fox Sports goes, they've made it clear that this brand won't enter India.
