BBC Indonesia re-launches as multimedia broadcaster - 19-January-2010, 18:04

BBC World Service has re-launched its Indonesian service as a multimedia operation. The redesigned website,, now becomes the key method for delivery of the BBC Indonesia output. The move to multimedia broadcasting matches the changes that have taken place on the Indonesian media market.
Head of BBC Indonesia, Menuk Suwondo, comments: “The re-launch of our service as a multimedia broadcaster, BBC Indonesia, is a step forward from the traditional radio broadcaster, BBC Siaran Indonesia (BBC Indonesian Broadcast), as we have been known in the region for decades.
“Audiences expect to get news whenever they want it and via media of their choice. More and more people, especially younger generation, get their news from the internet and mobile phones. BBC Indonesia now reaches these audiences, making our multimedia content available online and via mobile phones, in addition to FM broadcasts through partner stations across Indonesia.”
BBC Indonesia’s move to multiplatform broadcasting is led by the launch of its new-look website,, which now offers a range of improved functions and features. The revamped delivers a wider range of content, from political and business news and in-depth reports to sport news, features and magazine-format content, in text, audio and video. By accessing, audiences can get the multimedia content on their mobile phones.
Menuk Suwondo reiterates the BBC’s willingness to further reinforce cooperation with partner broadcast media in Indonesia: “We will continue to work closely with our media partners in Indonesia, particularly FM partner stations across the country. Some of them already function as multimedia broadcasters, and our becoming a multimedia operation means we can further strengthen our cooperation as we provide Indonesian audiences with independent and balanced news.”
The launch of the new multimedia service means readjustment of the BBC’s services for Indonesia. It will affect the radio schedules, as resources are directed on to other platforms. From today, the radio broadcast at 1300 UTC will be reduced from 30 minutes to five minutes. While there is no change in the duration of the morning broadcasts at 2200 UTC, and evening broadcasts at 1100 UTC, there will be no radio broadcasts on Saturdays and Sundays.
