Hong Kong-based Star TV launched Prime Sports (later renamed Star Sports) in partnership with American company TCI, which owned Prime-branded regional sports channels. The channel was broadcast across Asia, as with the footprint of AsiaSat 1. Star TV have since regionalised the channel with a number of versions, including a dedicated version for Taiwan. Later, ESPN have joined in the region as a competitor to Star Sports.
In June 2012, it was announced that News Corporation would buy ESPN International's share in ESPN Star Sports. Following the News Corporation take over, ESPN was relaunched as Fox Sports, and ESPN HD became Fox Sports Plus HD on 28 January 2013. Later, Star Sports was rebranded as Fox Sports 2, and Fox Sports Plus HD was renamed Fox Sports 3 HD on 15 August 2014.
