TEMPO.CO, JakartaThe Communication and Informatics (Kominfo) Ministry planned to end analog TV broadcasts or kick-start the Analog Switch Off (ASO) program in 93 service areas across 284 regencies or cities.

“We will announce ASO in the near future,” said Kominfo Minister Johnny Plate in a working meeting with the House of Representatives (DPR) Commission I on Wednesday, November 23, 2022.

Areas that will be affected by the program include West Java-1 (Bandung City and its surroundings), Central Java-1 (Semarang City and its surroundings), Yogyakarta (Yogyakarta City, Surakarta City, and its surroundings), East Java -1 (Surabaya City and its surroundings), and Riau Islands-1 (Batam City and its surroundings).

Nevertheless, Johhny said the next program will be carried out when the distribution of set-top boxes (STB) for poor households completes and the multiplexing infrastructure and broadcasting institutions for carrying out digital broadcasts are ready.

“Areas not included in the program will be coordinated unless there are discussions or new ideas with broadcasting institutions so that ASO can be executed quickly and well,” said Johnny.

The Kominfo Minister also said that 132 service areas out of 225 regions have carried out analog switch-off (ASO), which covers 230 regencies or cities.
