A detailed update of Indonesia's TV market, encompassing free-to-air and pay TV across all TV technologies, plus next-generation TV initiatives and OTT video. Includes digital terrestrial TV developments, revenue, market shares, programming, and advertising.


  • Longtime DTH satellite provider Indovision, rebranded at the end of last year as MNC Vision, continued to report weakened operations, with revenue and profit slipping. In 2017, Indovision's revenue decreased by 11% due to increased exposure to low-ARPU pay-TV subscriptions.
  • FirstMedia, a provider of home broadband and cable TV services, continued its upward trajectory in financial performance from previous years. Revenue from pay-TV services increased from IDR1.085510tn in 2016 to IDR1.43428tn in 2017, driven by a consistent increase in cable TV subscriptions and TV ARPU.
  • Pay-TV providers are now bundling their TV service with 4G mobile data services in order to survive in the hypercompetitive pay-TV market. MNC Vision has partnered with XL Axiata, and FirstMedia bundles cable TV services with Bolt’s 4G data packs.
