Television Republik Indonesia, established on 24 August 1962, launched Indonesia’s first TV broadcast with its transmission of the 4th Asian Games.
Although LPP TVRI and 10 private television stations in Indonesia broadcast nationwide, TVRI is the only public television station that is mandated by the government to provide national broadcasts.
TVRI operates 28 broadcasting stations and 376 transmission stations across the country. Almost all regional TVRI stations broadcast news in their respective regional languages.
As a public television broadcaster, TVRI provides neutral news reports and focuses on education and information for its viewers, in addition to promoting the arts and culture of Indonesia.
