Trans7 (formerly known as TV7) is a national private television station in Indonesia that is owned by Trans Corp.

History[edit]

Trans7 was established as TV7 based on permission of the Department of Trade and Industry in Central Jakarta No. 809/BH.09.05/III/2000 whose 88% of its share is largely owned by Kompas Gramedia and the rest is owned by Bakrie & Brothers (the conglomerate that is owned by Aburizal Bakrie, that owns ANTV). On November 25, 2001, the existence of TV7 has been published in State Gazette No. 8687 as PT Duta Visual Nusantara Tivi Tujuh. The logo itself is defined as a symbol of "JO", which stands for Jakob Oetama, the owner of Kompas Gramedia.

Al Jazeera relay effect[edit]

TV7 increasingly known to the public by the first quarter of 2003. TV7 was relaying live broadcast of Al Jazeera every day during the U.S. invasion of Iraq through a news program titled Invasi ke Irak (Invasion to Iraq). This step is followed by ANTV which relay broadcast television station Al Arabiya about the invasion.[2]

Indonesian society, in general, welcomed the TV7's step, especially for those who disagree with the Western media "truth".[3] Despite rumors that president at the time Megawati Soekarnoputri urged TV7 to stop the relay broadcasts of Al Jazeera, PR TV7 then, Uni Lubis, denied it. Even, he asserts that the relays are continued and disturbances in the relay could be resolved.[4]

Re-launch as Trans7[edit]

On August 4, 2006, CT Corp via Trans Corp authorized to buy a 49% stake in PT Duta Visual Nusantara Tivi Tujuh. By doing the re-launch on December 15, 2006-July 15,2014, this date was set as the birth date of Trans7. Managing Director of Trans7 is now Atiek Nur Wahyuni. When the station was named TV7, TV7 is headquartered at Wisma Dharmala Sakti Floor 21 Jend. Sudirman Street Lot 32 Jakarta 10220. Since TV7' official purchase by Trans Corp, TV7 began to share an office with Trans TV.
