On March 15, 2023, English general entertainment channel Star World went off air after more than 31 years on air. The channel, which was called Star Plus until 2000, was once a favorite among people who grew up in India during the 1990s and early 2000s, and was home to many of the most popular shows from that era. Although you might shed a tear for the channel’s closure, it was unfortunately losing viewership and relevance in recent years thanks to the phenomenal growth of streaming – especially among viewers of English language content. Disney Star finally decided to shut down the linear channel in 2023.

Although some may have liked the convenience of being able to turn on your television and set-top box, switch channels, and watch whatever was on without having to think or choose, it’s hard to deny the convenience and flexibility of streaming. Fortunately, much of Star World’s content is still available to watch online via streaming platforms; Disney+ Hotstar exclusively has a Star World channel where it curates and maintains classic shows that air on the linear TV channel.

Star World once hosted some of the most popular shows of its time, and luckily many of these shows are still available to watch online on popular streaming platforms. We’ve put together a list of classic Star World TV shows you can still watch today, and where you can find them — read on for our list.

breaking bad

The critically acclaimed AMC show Breaking Bad officially aired in India for the first time in 2013 on Star World, nearing the completion of its five-season run. The show was followed by a sequel feature film, El Camino, as well as the popular spinoff Better Call Saul. Currently, fans of the Breaking Bad universe can watch all seasons of both the shows as well as the movie on Netflix.

modern Family

One of the few sitcoms of the last decade that managed to stay at least somewhat relevant with the changing times, Modern Family has managed to maintain its fan base even today. Covering an extended family with some unique relationships and culturally forward-looking perspectives, the show has all 11 seasons available to watch on Disney+ Hotstar.


The classic espionage thriller Homeland ran for eight seasons from 2011 to 2020, and aired on Star World during this period. While Claire Danes was leading the series throughout its run portraying CIA officer Carrie Matheson, the show also featured strong supporting performances from Nicholas Brody as Damian Lewis and Saul Berenson as Mandy Patinkin. You can watch all the seasons of Homeland on Disney+ Hotstar.

the walking dead

Another popular show from AMC, The Walking Dead has garnered something of a cult following for its unique approach to the zombie genre. The show began with a focus on survival in the face of a zombie apocalypse, but eventually evolved to show the social and political aspects of its post-apocalyptic world. You can watch all 11 seasons of The Walking Dead on Netflix, although some episodes from the final season haven’t arrived on the platform yet.

coffee with karan

The long-running celebrity talk show hosted by filmmaker and television personality Karan Johar, Koffee With Karan was one of Star World’s most popular original shows. The first six seasons of the show aired on Star World, with the most recent seventh season finally making the move to go digital exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar in 2022. This was perhaps the biggest sign that Star World was on its way out. Luckily for fans of the show, all seven seasons of Koffee With Karan are available to watch on Disney+ Hotstar.
