History

On October 1987, state broadcaster TVRI lost its monopoly when the government allowed private television stations to begin broadcasting. RCTI was officially inaugurated on the morning of 24 August 1989 by President Suharto as Indonesia's first privately-owned commercial television network. Evening programming was launched by Minister of Information Harmoko. RCTI was initially broadcast to Jabodetabek area as a local pay television channel and was awarded a nationwide terrestrial license one year later. RCTI at the time only aired foreign programming as it cost cheaper compared to self-produced programming. The earlier subscription system also requires a satellite dish and a decoder.

RCTI was initially co-owned by PT Rajawali Wira Bhakti Utama (later Rajawali Corpora) and PT Bimantara Citra (later Global Mediacom, subsequently PT Media Nusantara Citra (MNC)), thus its name. It is completely owned by MNC, which also owns Global TV and MNCTV, both private Indonesian television stations.

RCTI now has 47 relay stations around Indonesia and reaches 180 million viewers.[ citation needed ]
