The Ministry of Communications and Information has issued Regulation 30/PER/M.KOMINFO/8/2009 on the provision of Internet Protocol television (IPTV) services in Indonesia. Among the factors influencing the regulation are the convergence of telecommunications, broadcasting and electronic transaction technologies and the readiness of Indonesian technology providers to enter the sector.
The regulation is expected to provide the industry with greater legal certainty. Its objectives, as stated in Article 1, include:
IPTV providers must be consortia formed of at least two Indonesian legal entities which have obtained the required licences. A licence allows an entity to act as a local fixed-line provider, a multimedia internet services provider and a paid broadcasting provider. A legal entity that is already a member of a consortium may not join another consortium. A consortium must be established on the basis of an agreement between its members. Foreign ownership of shares in the consortium is permitted according to the relevant laws and regulations.
Article 7 defines the scope of IPTV services to include:
The regulation also makes provision in respect of:
Articles 25 to 34 set out the application procedure for IPTV provider licences. Applications must be submitted to the minister of communication and information.
