  • Long-term DTH satellite provider and market leader, Indovision, has realized the limitations of its exclusive content business model and is now bundling its TV service with 4G mobile data services in partnership with XL Axiata.

  • Pay TV and video play a significant role in market penetration strategies for new fiber broadband providers.

  • The anti-piracy body IIPA says that the piracy and enforcement situation in Indonesia remains difficult, and it moved Indonesia to its “watch list” for 2016. With regulations governing DTT remaining ambiguous, and with little clarity on when a refreshed broadcasting law will be passed, the governments 2018 target for completetion of analog-to-digital switchover is unlikely to be met.
