Al Jazeera relay effect
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.
Indonesian society, in general, welcomed the TV7's step, especially for those who disagree with the Western media "truth". 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.
