The channel was launched as a test broadcast on 17 January 2002 at 4:00 PM local time, and was officially launched on 30 July 2002 at 7:00 PM. The final transmission and broadcast aired on 14 February 2008 at 19:30 WIB. The network was then sold by Abdul Latief and the new owners changed the name from Lativi to tvOne.


As Lativi

As part of the boom in national television stations in the 2000s, Lativi was one of five new terrestrial television networks which were granted a license to broadcast nationwide in Indonesia. It was initially owned by Abdul Latief, previously Minister of Labor and also a famous businessman.

After Lativi bankruptcy

By 2007, ownership of the network was transferred to Aburizal Bakrie and Erick Thohir (as president director) due to debt and poor network management.

Then the husband and wife team of Divi Lukmansyah and Nane Nindya anchored the first newscast. The television network officially started broadcasting on-air as tvOne on 14 February 2008 at 7:30PM local time. It was opened by the then President of Indonesia, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at Merdeka Palace in Jakarta. Anindya Bakrie (the son of Aburizal Bakrie) was named the Chief Commissioner and Erick Thohir as the President Director.

TV One was the second Indonesian television channel to be officially inaugurated by the President of Indonesia himself.

In late 2006, the station was involved in a controversy regarding a nine-year-old boy who died after suffering injuries while allegedly trying to imitate the staged moves of performers on WWE Friday Night SmackDown! The station decided to pull the show and all other WWE programs following public outcry.[12] Authorities, however, downplayed connections between wrestling and the death of the boy. The chief of the Bandung Crime and Detective Unit said at a press conference that there was no reason to believe that the child's death had anything to do with watching wrestling.[13]
