This move will further strengthen IBCAP’s protection of popular channels from India by adding channels, including:

  • Star Plus
  • Star Bharat
  • Star Gold
  • Star Gold Romance
  • Vijay TV
  • Vijay Super
  • Asianet
  • Asianet Plus
  • Asianet Movies
  • Star Maa TV

With a television network that reaches more than 700 million viewers in nine different languages every month and a popular streaming platform (Disney+ Hotstar), Disney Star joins an impressive list of IBCAP members in the fight against piracy. As part of its membership, IBCAP will provide anti-piracy protection for the organisation’s linear and VoD content, including popular films and series.

“We are pleased to welcome Disney Star as our newest member,” said Chris Kuelling, executive director of IBCAP. “Star is a highly recognised brand not only in India, but also throughout South Asian communities in the US.  We are confident that we will have similar success in removing or disrupting illegal streams of Star content as we have done for other IBCAP members.”
