PT MNC Sky Vision and Rewind Networks have signed an exclusive deal for HITS to be carried on Indovision debuting in Indonesia from the 1st of August 2014. HITS (Indovision Channel 169) will initially be part of the Galaxy and Super Galaxy pay-TV packs before further rolling out into the Venus pack, Okevision and TOP TV.
“Most young TV viewers in Indonesia would’ve never had a chance to watch these sensational and memorable shows. Thus, as part of our commitment to continuously providing the best TV viewing experience for our subscribers, we are launching HITS channel exclusively – which offers every single iconic series of its own genre such as Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Golden Girls, and Seinfeld. HITS’ launch completes our superior 32 exclusive channel line-up and strengthens our dominant market leader position in Indonesia’s Pay TV industry”, said Mr. Rudy Tanoesoedibjo, CEO and President Director of MNC Sky Vision.
“We are extremely excited to launch in Indonesia with Indovision,” said Mr. Avi Himatsinghani, CEO, Rewind Networks. “As the largest pay-TV provider in Indonesia it was natural to pick Indovision as our exclusive partner. HITS has performed well in Singapore and our belief is that amazing storytelling has universal appeal. We know that our hit shows will strike a chord in the Indonesian market and we will quickly become the go-to destination for viewers.”
“Our programming schedule is very suited towards Indonesian audiences,” commented Ms. Sandie Lee, VP & Channel Head, Rewind Networks. “Indonesia is well-known for their daily strips of juggernaut sinetrons. HITS is programmed no differently with our shows being shown at the same time every weekday with the added benefit of back-to-back episodes during the weekend for people to binge-view. In other words, the HITS schedule is already in line with established Indonesian viewing habits.”
HITS will be subtitled in Bahasa Indonesia. As an added bonus, Indovision viewers will also freely be able to access the HITS app on iOS or Android as well as at www.hitstv.com to catch-up on episodes of their favorite shows on- demand within Q4 2014.
HITS brings multi-award winning series with the greatest stories and most famous characters to a new generation of TV viewers whilst breathing new life into iconic shows. The portfolio of HITS’ shows launched the careers of A-list stars including Bruce Willis in Moonlighting and Jerry Seinfeld from Seinfeld. Other shows reinvented their genres such as Bill Cosby in The Cosby Show.
