- Not to be confused with RTV (Indonesia).
Rajawali Citra Televisi Indonesia (abbreviated as RCTI) is a first national private television station in Indonesia launched on August 24, 1989.
It was founded by a joint venture of Bimantara Citra and Rajawali Corpora (which later divested its shares in early 2000s, and acquired B-Channel that became RTV in 2014.), now its shares hold by Media Nusantara Citra, part of MNC Group.

RCTI was founded in 1987 and began its broadcast on November 13, 1988, using a set-top box. The station was officially launched on August 24, 1989, as a pay television network. One year later, it started to broadcasting free-to-air nationwide.
On August 24, 1990, Bimantara Citra founded SCTV in Surabaya to relay RCTI shows until 1993, when SCTV began to broadcast nationally. It finally separated from RCTI in 1996.
During its early broadcast, RCTI's on-air bug was a simple text until the mid-1990s, when it started to use the full logo. It was also placed on the right top.
On August 24, 1991, the logo was slightly updated.
The most familiar and long-lived logo of RCTI was launched on the 11th anniversary of RCTI called Satu Indonesia Satu, on August 24, 2000. Since then, the on-air bug position was moved from right top to left top. Starting 2003, RCTI broadcast 24 hours non-stop.
Along with MNC Group slightly rebranding on its several subsidiaries on May 20, 2015, during Indonesian National Awakening, RCTI logo was also straightened for the first time in almost 15 years.
