In 6 November 1988, state broadcaster TVRI lost its monopoly when the government's sixth 4-year plan allowed private television stations to begin broadcasting. RCTI was officially inaugurated on the morning of 24 August 1989 by President Soeharto as Indonesia's first privately owned commercial broadcasting terrestrial television network. Evening programming was launched by Minister of Information Harmoko. It initially broadcast to the Jakarta area from Jabodetabek as a local pay television channel and was awarded a nationwide license one year later. It now has 48 relay stations around Indonesia and reaches 180 million viewers. It is 100 percent owned by PT Media Nusantara Citra (MNC), which also owns Global TV and 75 percent of MNCTV, both private Indonesian television stations.
