Star India will broadcast the second season of Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League in five languages across eight channels. The move is aimed at ensuring a wider connect with regional audiences. The language feed is in sync with Star's effort to nurture and grow the sport, which witnessed spectacular success in its inaugural season. The languages in which the tournament will be telecast are Hindi, English, Telugu, Kannada and Marathi. The season begins on July 18.
The English feed will be carried by Star Sports 2 and Star Sports HD2, the Hindi feed by Star Sports 3, Star Sports HD3 and Star Gold. Maa Movies will broadcast the Telugu-language feed, while one can enjoy Kabaddi in Kannada on Suvarna Plus. Star Pravah will broadcast Star Sports Pro Kabaddi league matches in Marathi on Sundays only.
Built along the lines of a franchise model, featuring eight teams from all corners of the country, the Star Sports Pro Kabaddi League enjoyed a successful run in the first season. The packaging and presentation of a sport like kabaddi was much appreciated by viewers, thus prompting the channel to come up with a new season.
