Turner Broadcasting System and Trans Media to launch CNN Indonesia

Hong Kong, February 28, 2014 – Turner Broadcasting System Asia Pacific, Inc. and PT Trans Media Corpora have today announced a strategic partnership to launch CNN Indonesia, a 24-hour news channel and accompanying website in Bahasa Indonesia. This ground-breaking channel will be the first of its kind for CNN in Southeast Asia, delivering a localized version of CNN’s unique brand of high-quality news to the region’s most populous nation.

Jeff Zucker, CNN Worldwide President, said: “This agreement with one of the country’s largest media corporations puts CNN in a unique position to reach millions of Indonesians in a way that we have not been able to previously. The combination of the strength of the worldwide newsgathering power of CNN with the local perspective and sensibility that Trans Media will bring to the partnership enables us to provide important news and information to this enormous, non-English speaking audience.”

Chairul Tanjung, Founder and Chairman of Trans Media’s parent company, CT Corp, added: "I believe this partnership will help Indonesians to better understand the world and even more importantly, also help the world to better understand Indonesia. This is a partnership of two like-minded organisations who share common values of quality, integrity and transparency. CNN Indonesia will be the new destination for trustworthy and engaging content.”

The TV channel will be accompanied by a strong digital presence, including CNNIndonesia.com. With more than 100 million Indonesians expected to be online by 2016, a multi-platform brand will be a vital and complementary component to the on-air offering.

In addition to engaging leading local journalists to generate compelling coverage, the channel will also tap into CNN International’s vast pool of journalistic talent and share content from global affiliate partnerships. Trans Media will operate CNN Indonesia from its facilities in Jakarta. A launch date will be announced in due course.

Does anyone know if it is on air already?  Wikipedia says it was supposed to start last month?

Sort of, but in fairness the staff that will be hired will are not going to be directly under the employ of CNN, but its partner Trans Media.  Think of it as Trans Media acquiring the CNN branding/"naming rights" there.  CNN can't establish its own firms outside the US directly due to legal restrictions on foreign ownership of media (that's especially the case in the Philippines).

The Philippines doesn't allow that because it is stated in our constitution, which sucks (in my opinion).

 

I believe in the case of Indonesia, foreign companies are allowed to have 20% stake on television networks... for example: STAR TV (now known as FOX International Channels) ownership of terrestrial channel antv.

Wow, their website looks really clean.

Unlike the cluttered mess CNN.com has.

^^

Did the network's launch date coincide with the new president's (Dyoko) inauguration?

I've seen bits of CNN Indonesia live considering I'm not there and don't speak any Indonesian. Graphics, studio, etc make it look very professional. It has a whole lot more local newscasts than CNN PH. There are a few odd things: their sport programme airing live at 5.30 am while having a replay of their world news mid-morning. I actually don't get that part.
