DVB-T Likely Choice for Terrestrial DTV in Indonesia
Alexander Rusli, an advisor to Indonesia's communications minister, said the country might opt for the European DVB-T broadcast standard, due to its being the most widely used system and the most economical. The ISDB-T system from Japan was rejected because it is not widely used. The ATSC standard was also considered.

In the article Indonesia mulls over new digital broadcasting technology on the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union Web site, Rusli said, "The government and broadcasters will discuss the time for the introduction and frequency allocation. Hopefully the agreement on a standard system can be finished within a couple of weeks."

He added that it could take eight years to switch off the analog TV system.
