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 has ditched 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 (previously broadcast by RCTI), Super Deal (Previously broadcast by antv), Penghuni Terakhir (previously broadcast by antv), etc. Later, MNCTV took all of GTV's former sports programming.

History

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.
