Unspun and the adorable wife was talking about watching the Olympics on TV when we realized that there’s been very little coverage about which station would be carrying the Olympic broadcast in Indonesia.
Stranger still is when they read the newspapers and saw an advertisement of seemingly the only TV station offering live Olympic coverage in Indonesia. It was strange because the advertisement had all the hallmarks of a rush job. The headline on the ad promised “Beijing Olympics LIVE 4 channels” only on the new Pay TV of PT Karyamegah Adijaya.
There was no brand to the pay TV channel and the only reference to who was behind this pay TV was the name PT Karyamegah Adijaya and a phone number. No website. Nothing else save the subscription rates.
If you go into the internet then Karyamegah Adijaya is apparently Citra TV.
If this is the case then why isn’;t the company using the Citra TV name and logo? And how did Citra TV manage to get the exclusive rights of the Olympics when the established pay TV operators couldn’t?
Finally one other question that needs to be answered is this: what is the Press doing about informing us about the maneuverings behind the fight for the rights to the Olympics, as surely there must be one.
Of is this too much to ask from the Fifth Estate, whose job is to educate and inform us apart from entertaining us to their endless inane stories?
Can someone please enlighten the rest of us?
