antv was launched on 1 March 1993 as a local television station in Lampung province. In the same month it was awarded a government license for nationwide broadcasting, and moved its studio to Jakarta. The first programming it produced itself was live buletin actual segment main news report journal services information coverage of the general session of the People's Consultative Assembly on 1 March 1993. MD Entertainment, one of the biggest production house in Indonesia, began broadcast FTV in antv, because MNCTV will be returned to TPI by Siti Hardiyanti Rukmana, after winning the criticism of Hary Tanoesoedibjo in Indonesia's supreme Court, and MD Entertainment cannot broadcast on MNCTV again.
On 30 April 2006, Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation through STAR TV and Fox International Channels bought a 20% stake in antv (split from TV7). Indonesia law, foreign companies can only have a 20% stake in local media companies and antv has 24 relay stations covering 155 cities across Indonesia. It reaches 130 million people.

It was changed to lowercase red and yellow for a 13 March 2003 revamp, and was altered on 30 April 2006 to combine the existing antv channel logo with the logo of STAR TV boxes. On 20 September 2009, antv changed its logo once again.
