Star Movies is an Asian pay television network originally owned by Fox Networks Group Asia, Middle East and Star TV India. In March 2019, The Walt Disney Company acquired Star TV for $71 billion with 21st Century Fox. Star Movies was originally launched as a single channel broadcast across Asia, but it was regionalised into different localised channels since then. Fox Networks Group Asia Pacific have since rebranded some of the network’s international feeds in Hong Kong, Taiwan (SD Feed Only) and Southeast Asia as Fox Movies, but retains the Star Movies brand in Mainland China (Hong Kong),Taiwan (HD Feed),Middle East & South Asia (except Maldives). Star India continues to operate the Indian feed of the network as a channel specialised in Western films, while the Middle Eastern feed, operated by Fox Networks Group Middle East, co-exists with Fox Movies. Star Movies HD in Taiwan is operated by Disney Networks Group Taiwan which was the advertisement-free offering of Fox Movies Taiwan. However, from March 2021 Star Movies Taiwan started doing short advertisement breaks in between movies. Star Movies in Middle East is operated by Fox Network Group Middle East. Star Movies has been changed into Star Movies HD on January 10, 2021.
STAR Movies was split up from STAR Plus on 1 May 1994, which usually aired movies in the early years of STAR TV from 1991 to 1994. At launch, its programming lineup was consisted of both Hollywood and Chinese films and catered to pan-Asian audiences.
As Star TV planned to remove BBC World Service Television from its channel lineup for Northeast Asia by mid-April 1994, the company planned to replace it with a Chinese-language film channel. Star Movies would focus on Western world films from then on. Star TV has since regionalized the channel’s operation.
A localised feed intended for the Philippines was launched on 1 January 2010. Four months later, a high-definition channel, Star Movies HD, was launched. A video on demand channel was also launched on 16 September of that same year.
On 1 January 2012, Star Movies was rebranded as Fox Movies Premium and available in Hong Kong, the Maldives and most of Southeast Asia.
On 10 June 2017, the Philippine feed of the channel was rebranded as Fox Movies Philippines.
On 1 November 2017, the Vietnamese feed of Star Movies was rebranded as Fox Movies Vietnam.
On 1 October 2021, Star Movies China were officially shut down its transmission.
On 1 January 2022, Star Movies HD Taiwan along with the Brazilian version of Fox Sports channels and the Taiwanese feed of Fox Movies, Fox, Disney Channel and Disney Junior would officially shut down its transmission, a month before the discontinuation of Star Premium group channels in Latin America.
