tvOne is an Indonesian privately owned national television station based in East Jakarta. It used to be known as Lativi, but changed its name after an ownership swap in February 2008. tvOne is owned by Visi Media Asia.

The first transmission aired on January 17, 2002 at 16:00 WIB, and was officially launched on July 30, 2002 at 19:00 WIB. The final transmission and broadcast aired on February 14, 2008 at 19:30 WIB. The network was then sold by Abdul Latief and the new owners changed the name from Lativi to tvOne.


As Lativi

As part of the boom in national television stations in the 2000s, Lativi was one of five new national television networks which were granted a license to broadcast nationwide in Indonesia. It was initially owned by Abdul Latief, previously Minister of Labor and also a famous entrepreneur.


In late 2006, Lativi was involved in a controversy regarding a 9-year-old boy who died after suffering injuries supposedly related to watching SmackDown! (previously broadcast by RCTI). Although nothing was proven regarding the circumstances of the death, Lativi succumbed and pulled all of its WWE programs off the air on November 29, 2006.[citation needed].

After Lativi bankruptcy

By 2007, ownership of the network had transferred to Aburizal Bakrie and Erick Thohir (as president director) due to debt and poor network management.

Then the husband and wife team of Divi Lukmansyah and Nane Nindya anchored the first newscast. The television network officially started broadcasting on-air as tvOne on Thursday, 14 February 2008 at 19:30 local time. It was opened by then President of Indonesia, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Vice President of Indonesia, Jusuf Kalla, at Merdeka Palace in Jakarta. Anindya Bakrie (the son of Aburizal Bakrie) was named as the Chief Commissioner and Erick Thohir as the President Director.

tvOne was the second Indonesian television channel to be officially inaugurated by the President of Indonesia himself.

In late 2006, the station was involved in a controversy regarding a nine-year-old boy who died after suffering injuries while allegedly trying to imitate the staged moves of performers on WWE Friday Night SmackDown! The station decided to pull the show and all other WWE programs following public outcry.[4]

Authorities, however, downplayed connections between wrestling and the death of the boy. The chief of the Bandung Crime and Detective Unit said at a press conference that there was no reason to believe that the child's death had anything to do with watching wrestling.[5]
