Indovision is a subscription-based direct broadcast satellite (DBS) or direct-to-home satellite television and radio service initially in Indonesia. Indovision is currently owned by PT MNC Skyvision Tbk (IDX: MSKY).
Indovision began operations in 1994.1
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 satellite was launched.
This satellite uses S-Band frequency, which are less vulnerable to atmospheric interference than C-Band frequency, and are well suited to the tropical climate such as Indonesia. Cakrawarta-1 is managed and operated by PT Media Citra Indostar (MCI), which was established on July 22, 1991.1
The S-Band DBS service substantially has increased programming line-up and has expanded the company's subscriber base using smaller and less expensive satellite dishes with only 80 cm in diameter. Then, by the end of 1997, the company anticipated terminating its analog service and encouraged its subscribers to switch to its new digital DBS service. This digital system allows Indovision to deliver superior audio and video quality to its subscribers.1
