Currently owned by PT MNC Sky Vision Tbk, itself a subsidiary of Media Nusantara Citra, MNC Vision is the oldest subscription-based television service in Indonesia.

Its slogan is Pay TV Keluarga Indonesia (Pay TV for Indonesian Families).[citation needed]

History[edit]

MNC Vision began operations in 16 January 1994 as Indovision.[1] Indovision started its service with five-channel C-Band Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS) analog service. Using Palapa C-2 satellite for its transponder and broadcasting system, the C-Band DBS service features programming from international suppliers, such as HBO Asia, Star TV, Discovery, as well as local programming. Following in 1997, IndoStar-1 which also known as Cakrawarta-1 (designed and built by Thomas van der Heyden, founder of what later became Orbital Sciences GEO division), was launched as the world's first commercial communications satellite to use S-band frequencies for broadcast (pioneered by van der Heyden), which provided high-quality transmissions to small-diameter 80 cm antennas in regions that experience heavy rainfall such as Indonesia.

This satellite uses S-Band frequency, which are less vulnerable to atmospheric interference than other satellite frequencies, and are well suited to the tropical climate such as Indonesia. Cakrawarta-1 is managed and operated by PT Media Citra Indostar (MCI), established on 22 July 1991.[1]

By the end of 1997, the company anticipated terminating its analog service and encouraged its subscribers to switch to its digital DBS service.[1]

In 2008, a slimmed-down suite of channels was marketed separately by Indovision as Top TV. It was discontinued at the end of 2017 in the rebranding to MNC Vision.[2]

In May 2009, Indovision launched a satellite named Indostar-2/Cakrawarta-2/ProtoSar-2. It was later renamed to SES-7 in May 2010.[3][4][5]

Currently, MNC Vision has 5 channels in high-definition, including HBO HD, Fox Movies Premium HD, National Geographic Channel HD, Disney XD HD, & Fox Sports 3 HD.

On December 12, 2017, Indovision merged with Top TV and another separated service Okevision to form MNC Vision.[6]
