According to research firm Venture Consulting, consumers in Indonesia desire two things: more local and regional content, and the ability to view it anytime, anywhere. Indonesia has a large population of 242 million people and a fairly low free-to-air (FTA) TV penetration rate of 56 percent. With its new services, Orange TV is reaching into rural areas in Indonesia such as the suburban villages and the many islands across the Indonesian archipelago.

“Today’s OTT platforms and business models are evolving to meet subscriber demand for premium content, including live sports and exclusive on-demand titles, which is why Orange TV is well-positioned for success,” said Bengt Jonsson, Vice President Sales, APAC. “We are happy that Orange TV has once again selected as its long-term partner for the future, and we look forward to helping them realise the wealth of opportunities in the Indonesian pay-TV market.”
