MNCTV (formerly TPI) is an Indonesian private television station. MNCTV was established by Tutut Soeharto, the first daughter of former president Suharto. It began broadcasting on the 23 January 1991 with broadcasting only educational programs, but has since become similar to other Indonesian TV stations, showing programs such as quizzes, sinetrons (soap operas), reality TV shows, sport shows, and lately, dangdut music.

75% of MNCTV's share is currently held by Media Nusantara Citra, that also has shares on RCTI and Global TV.


Early days[edit]

TPI, short of Televisi Pendidikan Indonesia (Indonesian Educational Television) was created as an educational television station by state broadcaster TVRI in January 2, 1991. By the time of its launch in 1991, it airs as an educational programming block targeted to elementary students, junior high school students and high school students, 2 hours per day on television at 08:00 to 10:00. To do so, it accompanied with the Ministry of Education and Culture of Indonesia. As a programming block, it airs a high school subject matter.

On April 1991, the block was expanded into 4 hours at 08:00 to 12:00, later to 6.5 hours on the 1 June 1992 at 06:30 to 12:00 and finally to eight hours on November 30, 1992 at 06:00 to 14:00. On January 23, 1993, TPI began to air its first soap opera program as a distraction to 16,5 hours at 05:30 to 21:00.

1993-2003: Splitting service[edit]

On January 23, 1993, TPI began to air its first reality TV show. After TPI ended its ties with TVRI in 1997, its educational programs have been displaced by more soap opera and entertainment programming. In 1998, the channel retired the original branding name "Televisi Publiksiaran Indonesia" (lit. Indonesian Public Broadcasting Television) in favor of the on-air name "Televisi Keluarga Indonesia" (lit. Indonesian Family Television). On May 18, 2001, the TPI name was used but only using the simple word "TPI" instead. Also, TPI began to expand more programs that related to musics, sports, cartoon, etc..

From 2004, it focused on dangdut programs. The most successful dangdut contest, Kontes Dangdut Indonesia is a dangdut version that derived from RCTI's Indonesian Idol.

On February 12, 2002, TPI announced to broadcast Formula One (known as TPI Sport and Racing World) racing to replace RCTI as official F1 station due to financial problems.

In 2002, TPI broke record as the richest and largest television station after RCTI.

2003-2009: Awarded its shows and acquisition by MNC[edit]

During the 1997 Indonesian Soap-Opera Award, its very honourable soap opera Mat Angin by Deddy Mizwar, which was aired by TPI, won 11 awards, plus the 5 awards again next year from the same series. Not forgetting also the most favorite events in Indonesia was Santapan Nusantara a culinary program hosted by Enita Sriyana, who is a culinary expert. In addition, it also awarded more for its first and oldest quiz show Kuis Dangdut (hosted by H. Jaja Miharja).

On March 6, 2001, Media Nusantara Citra, which also owns RCTI and Global TV, acquired 75% of the channel. Then in 2007, new employees are hired, such as Mayjen. TNI. (purn.) Sang Nyoman Suwisma, and Dandy Nugroho Rukmana.

2009-2010: Decline[edit]

During its 2009-2010 season, due to technical reasons, TPI did not air its sport shows. On October 20, 2009, a controversial report stated that Communications expert from the University of Indonesia (UI) Ade Armando review decisions of the judges who is willing pull entertainment programs from TPI, since it should have educational programs instead. Armando said that it must be should the decision of the Commercial Court (PN) which granted the request of the Central Jakarta bankruptcy PT Global Crown Capital Limited (CCGL) on PT TPI reviewed further.[2]

The handling cases involving the mass media can not be equated with the handling or other service companies. Because, not all people are able and capable of using it, so that the handling had to be excluded. "It looks very sloppy, not equal," he said. In this bankruptcy decision, according to Ade, a loss not only experienced by the company but also harmed the public.[2]

Anticipating similar things, there must be a joint effort of several parties, such as the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI), the Association of Private Television, and other stakeholders. Especially against the decision issued unilaterally and awkward legal institutions.[3]

Decisions of bankruptcy has also been supported from the Parliament in the legal process underway in the level of the Indonesian Supreme Court. Support was expressed Marzuki Alie when receiving the visit of Directors of TPI in the study of the DPR, Senayan, Jakarta, on November 25, 2009.[4]

2010-present: Re-launch to MNCTV and the upcoming planning[edit]

Since October 20, 2010, TPI officially changed its name to MNCTV. These changes occurred because of TPI was not in accordance with the written context that TPi is dedicated to education, and therefore the name changed from TPI to MNCTV, in order to change the image in the eyes of sthe public.[5]
