CASBAA's Indonesia in View: Growing Pay TV

HONG KONG, Feb 15, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - CASBAA's first forum of the year, Indonesia in View: Growing Pay TV will be held on Wednesday, 29 February 2012 in Jakarta at the Hotel Mulia Senayan.

The Indonesian economy grew by 6.5 percent in Q4 2011, "a level not seen since before the 1990s Asian crisis" - and the media economy is growing even faster with the country's pay-TV industry recently passing the 2-million subscriber mark. With growth spurred by innovative pricing strategies, higher quality content and new advertising strategies, there is plenty of room to expand as new players enter the landscape... but competition could be tough.

"With this forum, CASBAA and the international industry recognize the growing role of Indonesia in this important facet of the regional information economy," said Simon Twiston Davies, CEO, CASBAA.

As part of CASBAA's mandate to inform, represent and connect, Indonesia in View: Growing Pay TV will highlight increased distribution and a fast-growing advertising sector, supported by changes in broadcasting laws.

CASBAA has assembled a stellar cast of local and international experts to explore the hot issues affecting the future of Indonesia's pay-TV industry - from content to regulation to piracy and more.

Invited to open the event is Minister Tifatul Sembiring, Ministry of Communication and Information Technology.

Also scheduled to participate at the forum, among many leaders of industry and government, are Dadang Rahmat Hidayat (Chairman, KPI), Syamsul Lussa (Director of Film, Ministry of Culture & Tourism), Susy Sayers (CEO, PT Tiga Citra Sinema), Arya Mahendra Sinulingga (Secretary General, APMI), Campbell Walker (Territory Head, Indonesia, Fox) and Agnes Widiyanti (Director of Broadcasting, Kominfo).

CASBAA Indonesia in View: Growing Pay TV is presented in association with Kominfo and KPI.
