ANTV was launched on January 1, 1993 as a local television station in Lampung province. In the same month it was awarded a government license for nationwide broadcasting, and moved its studio to Jakarta. The first programming it produced itself was live coverage of the general session of the People's Consultative Assembly on March 1, 1993.

On April 30, 2006, Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation through STAR TV and Fox International Channels bought a 20% stake in ANTV. By Indonesia law, foreign companies can only have a 20% stake in local media companies. ANTV has 24 relay stations covering 155 cities across Indonesia and reaches 130 million people.

Sports programming

ANTV does not broadcast any foreign sport programming. Instead, it shows 2014 FIFA World Cup, Indonesian Super League and Liga Indonesia Premier Division, along with its sister channel tvOne (now broadcast on RCTI, MNCTV, and GTV).
