There’s been development this morning on the two new STAR channels launching later this month on Sky Digital.

STAR Gold, a 24 hour movies channels from the STAR stable has begun testing off the EPG. The channel is currently testing Now/Next EPG data. Audio and visual tests are set to begin within the next few days ahead of launch.

The youth orientated channel STAR One, which also launches along with STAR Gold is also expected to begin its test transmission shortly.
