The station airs news and sports such as F1 and A1, and also broadcasts MTV programs and Nickelodeon cartoons.
GlobalTV has 30 transmission sites covering some 200 cities and towns across the country. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Media Nusantara Citra (MNC), which also owns RCTI and MNCTV.
The station began airing on June 1, 2002, originally only broadcasting MTV Indonesia programs such as MTV Most Wanted, MTV Land, and MTV Ampuh. After four years as an MTV broadcaster, on January 15, 2005, Global TV began producing its own television programs for 12 hours. Its slogan was “Millions of Home Entertainment.”
On late January 1, 2005, it was expanded to 18 cities in Indonesia, while Bhakti Investama acquired Viacom Indonesia from Bakrie & Brothers.
