To receive digital broadcast services, residents must purchase an additional set top box which still uses a UHF receiving antenna.

Once installed, broadcast channels can be searched automatically in the search menu to enjoy broadcasts.

President Joko Widodo said that the migration to digital TV was part of technological transformation.

The government also provides free set top boxes for around 6.7 million poor people.

Analog TV migration to digital is also being undertaken to reorganize the use of limited frequencies and provide sufficient frequency space for fast internet and the digital economy.
