History

Star! was licensed in 1996 by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission and was launched on September 10, 1999 under the ownership of CHUM Limited. On June 22, 2007, CTVglobemedia gained control of Star! as a result of a takeover of CHUM Limited.

The station formerly broadcast programming from the equivalent American cable network E! until that network licensed their name to Global's now-defunct secondary broadcast CH television system and transferred their programming to that service, which became known as E!.

In the fall of 2007, Star! replaced Star! Daily with eTalk on the schedule.
