Four of the channels were dedicated to Olympic coverage. Aora earned the exclusive broadcasting rights to the 2008 Olympics exclusively for Indonesia.[1]

At the same time, Aora also added several new channels into its channels lineup. Due to no exclusive Premier League matches again, Aora TV loss a lot of the subscribers and at end of 2009 Aora TV discontinued all of the broadcast followed by curtailment of 90 percent of the employees.
