Surya Citra Televisi (abbreviated as SCTV) is the second-oldest privately owned Indonesian television channel (after RCTI) and the third-oldest Indonesian television channel (after TVRI), as well as one of the most-watched television channels in the country.
It was launched by Bimantara Citra (now Global Mediacom) on 24 August 1990, to relay RCTI shows in Surabaya and other cities on eastern Java. Today, it is broadcasting nationwide and owned by Emtek, through its subsidiary Surya Citra Media).
While founded as a local station in Surabaya in August 1990, the early abbreviation of SCTV was Surabaya Centra Televisi. In 1991, SCTV expanded its coverage to Bali and the full name of the channel had become Surya Citra Televisi.
This logo, appearing in idents from 1990 and 1991, was officially introduced on 24 August 1993, as SCTV began to air nationwide together with RCTI. SCTV completely moved their headquarters from Surabaya to Jakarta in 1998.
On 1 August 2003, the logo was slightly modified by removing white light shadows. This is done so that the logo can be easily applied to promotional materials and television screens.
On 29 January 2005, for the first time since its founding, SCTV fully replaced its sunrise logo, introducing a new slogan, Satu Untuk Semua (One For All in Indonesian).
