Surya Citra Televisi (SCTV) is an Indonesian television station. It is broadcast nationwide on UHF and is able to be received throughout the Indonesian archipelago on analog PAL television sets.
SCTV began broadcasting on August 24, 1990 in Surabaya, East Java as Surabaya Centra Televisi, broadcasting to the city and the surrounding area. At first, the programming was similar to that of RCTI, using some of their news programs until they could produce their own. On August 1, 1993, SCTV obtained a national license and eventually moved its operations to Jakarta, changing its name to Surya Citra Televisi.
Its main office is in Central Jakarta, with studios in West Jakarta. It is owned by Surya Citra Media, part of the technology solution company Emtek.
On February 18, 2011, the commissioners of its parent companies Indosiar and SCTV agreed to a merger, although this was subject to government approval due to both companies going public.
