Following the successful launching of INDOSTAR II satellite from Kazakhstan in May 2009, MNC Sky Vision, a vendor for both Indovision and Top TV paid TV, plans to add dozens of additional channels for its customers.
Starting from July 2009, both Indovision and Top TV customers will have up to 75 channels to choose from in a new package. This is an additional 20 channels to the previous package with 10 of them never before aired in Indonesia.
In addition, the new package is also affordable with prices starting from Rp 85,000 per month. New channels worth considering include HBO Hits, HBO Family, MGM, Star Chinese Movie II, Channel V India, Channel V Taiwan, AXN Beyond and Sony Entertainment Television.
Two of the first basic packages offered by Indovision are Galaxy, at Rp 179,000 with 58 channels, and Venus at Rp 149,000 with 48 channels. Top TV, on the other hand, charges its customers Rp 2,800 per day with 37 channels in all.
