Transvision is a subscription-based direct broadcast satellite provider service for Indonesia. It is a joint venture between Telkom Indonesia, an Indonesian state-owned company, and Trans Media, a subsidiary of CT Corp.[2]

Transvision's slogan is Transformasi Hiburan Keluarga (Transformation of Family Entertainment).

Early history[edit]

PT Indonusa Telemedia was established on 7 May 1997 with the brand name TelkomVision and began operations in 1999. TelkomVision started as a company consisting of several shareholders:

  • PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom)
  • PT Telkomindo Primabhakti (Megacell)
  • PT Rajawali Citra Televisi Indonesia (RCTI)
  • PT Datakom Asia (Datakom Asia)

By 2003, Telkom became its principal shareholder by holding 98.75% share of TelkomVision, while the rest (1.25%) is owned by Datakom.[3]

In 2014, TelkomVision officially rebranded as Transvision due to TelkomVision shareholders only 20% and now owned by Trans Media which became its principal shareholder by holding 80%. Now Transvision is fully owned by joint venture between Telkom Group and Trans Media.

Cable TV[edit]

Transvision coverage area for analog cable TV is limited to a number of cities in Indonesia, such as Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang, and Surabaya. It has also a digital cable service that covers Bandung, Jakarta, and Surabaya.[citation needed]

Satellite TV[edit]

Transvision's satellite service covers 38 distributor areas in Indonesia. Transvision is using the Measat 3B satellite (Ku-band) to provide High Definition TV.[citation needed]

Subscribers[edit]

At April 2011, TelkomVision has 200,000 subscribers and was planned be boosted up to 500,000 at end of the year using security and media technology software, Irdeto's Conditional Access System. The lowest Hit Family package costs Rp.55,000 ($6.4) per month, but Transvision would soon release a cheaper product to introduce pay TV broadcasts.[4]
