Trans 7 was established as TV7 based on permission of the Department of Trade and Industry in Central Jakarta No. 809/BH.09.05/III/2000. 80% of its share is largely owned by Kompas Gramedia;. On November 25, 2001, the existence of TV7 was published in State Gazette No. 8687 as PT Duta Visual Nusantara Tivi Tujuh. The logo itself is the letters "JO", which stands for Jakob Oetama (1931-2020), the owner of Kompas Gramedia. The logo is also loosely based on the Circle 7 logo that the American Broadcasting Company used for its O&O stations in North America.

Al Jazeera relay effectEdit

TV7 was increasingly known to the public by the first quarter of 2003. TV7 was relaying a live broadcast of Al Jazeera every day during the U.S. invasion of Iraq through a news program titled Invasi ke Irak (Invasion to Iraq). This step was followed by ANTV broadcasting television station Al Arabiya about the invasion.[2]

Indonesian society, in general, welcomed TV7's actions, especially for those who disagreed with the Western media's "truth".[3] Despite rumors that then-president Megawati Soekarnoputri urged TV7 to stop the relay broadcasts of Al Jazeera, PR TV7 then, Uni Lubis, denied it. Even, she asserted that the relays were continued and disturbances in the relay could be resolved.[4]
