GTV (formerly known as Global TV) is a national terrestrial private television station in Indonesia. Starting from a local private television station in Jakarta, Global TV broadcast later expanding to five other major cities. It was established on 1 January 1998 and first went on air on 21 May 2002 with MTV programming.

The station airs news and sports such as F1 and A1, and also broadcasts MTV programmes and Nickelodeon cartoons.

GTV has 30 transmission sites covering some 200 cities and towns across the country. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Media Nusantara Citra (MNC), which also owns RCTI and MNCTV.

Since November 2017 after the rebranding, GTV dropped any sports programming and replaced with the reality shows and game shows that were revived, like Famili 100 (Previously broadcast by ANteve & Indosiar), Bedah Rumah (previously broadcast by RCTI), Uang Kaget (previously broadcast by RCTI), Nikah Gratis (Previously broadcast by RCTI), KomuniKata (Previously broadcast by TPI), Dibayar Lunas, etc.


The station began airing on 1 June 2002, originally only broadcasting MTV Indonesia programs such as MTV Most Wanted, MTV Land, and MTV Ampuh. After four years as an MTV broadcaster, on 15 January 2005, Global TV began producing its own television programmes for 12 hours. Its slogan was "Millions of Home Entertainment."

On late 1 January 2005, it was expanded to 18 cities in Indonesia, while Bhakti Investama acquired Viacom Indonesia from Bakrie & Brothers.

On 11 October 2017, Global TV changed its name and logo to GTV, coinciding with the "Amazing 15" event, which is the Global TV 15th Anniversary celebration.

Disputes with ANTV in Surabaya[edit]

Global TV has applied for airing in Surabaya using UHF 24 channel (679.25 MHz) because since almost a year the people around Surabaya can not enjoy Global TV service, but the channel is used for ANTV based on license no. 00781311-000SU / 202006 which is valid until 31st September 2008.

Previously, Global TV dared to provide television services for the community around Surabaya after obtaining permission from the Governor of East Java about the extension of Global TV broadcast coverage in Surabaya and Sidoarjo Regency (6 January 2003). The previous similar letter of approval has also been given successively by the Regent of Surabaya (20 November 2005) and the Madurese Regent (27 November 2005).

In 2008, Head of Radio Frequency Monitoring and Satellite Orbit Satellite Surabaya and Gresik based on direct monitoring conducted in Surabaya on June 20, 2007, UHF 24 channel in Surabaya was used by Global TV.

This made Global TV received a warning from the Director General of Post and Telecommunication on April 21, 2007 because Global TV does not have official permission to air in Surabaya and Surroundings. However, at that time Global TV still airs in Surabaya using the same channel (24 UHF), so the people there can not receive Global TV and ANTV with clear images.

Then in June 2008, the Director General of Post and Telecommunications gave a final warning to Global TV because Global TV was still broadcasting in Surabaya using the same channel that had previously been given to ANTV by Ditjen Postel. This can be solved by national frequency control.
