Lativi, later renamed "tvOne", was an Indonesian national private commercial free-to-air terrestrial television station based in East Jakarta. It operated from 30 July 2002 to 14 February 2008. It was owned by entrepreneurs Abdul Latief and Kaos Studios.

The first transmission aired on 17 January 2002 at 16:00 WIB, and was officially launched on 30 June 2002 at 19:00 WIB. The final transmission and broadcast aired on 14 February 2008 at 19:30 WIB. The network was then sold by Abdul Latief and the new owners changed the name from Lativi to tvOne.


In late 2006, the station was involved in a controversy regarding a nine-year-old boy who died after suffering injuries while allegedly trying to imitate the staged moves of performers on WWE Friday Night SmackDown! The station decided to pull the show and all other WWE programs following public outcry.[1]

Authorities, however, downplayed connections between wrestling and the death of the boy. The chief of the Bandung Crime and Detective Unit said at a press conference that there was no reason to believe that the child's death had anything to do with watching wrestling.[2]
