ABP News is an Indian Hindi news channel claimed by ABP Group.[1] ABP Live is an Indian English news site possessed by ABP Group.[2]


STAR News was propelled on 18 February 1998. From 2003 STAR News turned into a total [3] channel. It was the primary bilingual (English – Hindi) news administration and was at first kept running by STAR India all alone with NDTV doing the creation until 2003. At the point when the concurrence with the NDTV lapsed in 2003, STAR News was changed into a total Hindi language news channel, some portion of the STAR and ABP tie up.

In 2003, the agreement with NDTV finished and STAR chose to run the channel individually. In any case, the administration presented a rule topping outside value in the News business to 26%. STAR at that point went into a joint endeavor with the Ananda Bazar Patrika gathering to shape an organization called Media Content and Communications Services Pvt. Ltd. (MCCS) which ran the channel STAR News. STAR claimed 26% in this joint endeavor while the Ananda Bazar Patrika bunch possessed 74%.[4]

On 16 April 2012, Anandabazar Patrika (ABP) Group declared that they would go separate ways, permitting the Rupert Murdoch-controlled organization to withdraw from the news business in India to concentrate on entertainment.[5] With the split, the eight-year connection with the 'Star' brand arrived at an end. Media Content and Communications (MCCS), the organization that claimed and worked the news channels, said that after the split, Hindi news channel Star News would be named ABP News, Bengali news channel Star Ananda would progress toward becoming ABP Ananda and the Marathi news channel Star Majha would be called ABP Majha.[6] A Punjabi language variant of the channel called ABP Sanjha is well known with northern Punjabi audiences.[7] A Gujarati language form called ABP Asmita was propelled on 1 January 2016.
