Star Sports 2... coming soon to Dialog TV?

According to unconfirmed reports, Star Sports 2 will be added to Dialog TV soon. This information is coming through various subscribers who are calling Dialog TV since they are mission certain sports events which are being shifted periodically to the channel from time to time.

This would indeed be a great move by Dialog TV since they sometimes tend to replace either ESPN/Star Sports with Star Sports 2 for sporting events such as Formula 1.

Now comes the question, will Star Sports 2 come as an additional channel or will it replace an existing one. We sincerely hope it comes as a new channel and not as a replacement to an existing one. Hopefully Dialog TV is able to accelerate the MPEG4 DVB S2 conversion process which will free of transponder capacity to add MTV India, Star Sports 2 and remove the time sharing on certain time shared channels allowing them each to have a separate channel that will allow the channels to be available 24 hours a day.

Please keep us updated on the latest on Dialog TV as the days progress.

Star to have a Hindi sports channel; Star Sports to become mother brand | TelevisionPost.com

Star India has also decided to shed the ESPN brand in the country. The rebranded channel will be called Star Sports 4. Similarly, ESPN HD has been rebranded as Star Sports HD 2. The existing Star Sports channel will now be known as Star Sports 1 while Star Cricket HD will be rebranded as Star Sports HD 1.

So it goes like dis

Star Sports : Star Sports 1
Star Sports 2: Star Sports 2
Star Cricket : Star Sports 3
ESPN : Star Sports 4
Star Cricket HD: Star Sports 1 HD
ESPN HD: Star Sports 2 HD

Copying and pasting from an Indian forum:

Star Sports will be Star Sports 1 (Will Showcase premier events mainly Cricket)
Star Sports 2 will remain Star Sports 2 (Will Showcase premier events mainly Football with Dual Feed)
Star Cricket will be Star Sports 3 (With Largely Hindi content and Indian Domestic properties)
ESPN will be Star Sports 4 (With International sports content like F1, Baseball, etc)
Star Cricket will be Star Sports HD 1 (With HD feed of Cricket and Football)
ESPN HD will be Star Sports HD 2 (with HD feed of Football, F1 and other Domestic Properties).....

Now the big question would be which channels would Dialog carry since currently they only have 4 (or 5 if they were planning on adding SS2) out of the 6 ESS channels?
