Televisi Republik Indonesia (TVRI) (formerly known as Televisi Indonesia (Indonesian Television in English)) is a state-owned, public broadcasting television and the oldest television station in Indonesia. It is based in Senayan, Central Jakarta.[1]

The initial motto of TVRI was Menjalin Persatuan dan Kesatuan; it changed to become Saluran Pemersatu Bangsa and Semangat Baru.

History[edit]

The television tower of state-owned TVRI at its headquarters in Jakarta

In 1961, the Indonesian government decided to include the establishment of a national television station as part of the preparations for the 1962 Asian Games to be held in Jakarta. Later that year, the Television Preparation Committee was formed. In October, President Sukarno ordered the building of a studio in Senayan, Jakarta and two television towers. TVRI broadcast its first test transmission, of the Indonesian Independence Day celebrations from the Merdeka Palace transmission on August 17, 1962. TVRI went on the air on the day of the 1962 Asian Games opening ceremony, August 24, 1962. Two years later, the first regional broadcast stations opened in Yogyakarta, Semarang, Medan, Surabaya, Makassar, Manado, Batam, Palembang, Bali and Balikpapan. Earlier in 1963, the TVRI Foundation was formally created.

In 1974 TVRI became part of the Information Ministry, with the status of a directorate. Its role was to inform the public about government policies.

The first colour television signal was transmitted via a satellite transmission in 1974. The first colour news bulletins were the Berita Nasional (National News), Berita Dalam Dunia (News in the World), breaking events segments on Laporan Khusus (Special Report) and Berita Terakhir (Late News). Subsequently, the first live colour telecast was of the 1974 FIFA World Cup between West Germany and Chile form opening ceremony on June 13, 1974 to final between West Germany and Netherlands from the closing ceremony on July 7, 1974.

TVRI in the late 1970s and 1980s became a well defined mass media component of the national information department. By that time it also had a second channel on Channel 8. It also established provincial television production studios.

In 1989, TVRI lost its monopoly when the government's sixth Five-Year Plan allowed private television stations to begin broadcasting. the first commercial television station being RCTI.

After the start of the reform era, TVRI's status was changed again and it became responsible firstly to the Ministry of Finance and was then turned into a limited company under the authority of the State Ministry for State-Owned Enterprises and Ministry of Finance.
