As the first local Station in Indonesia, TVRI Yogyakarta initially broadcasted
in 1965. It was located on Jalan Hayam Wuruk and led by its first leader, IR.
Dewabrata. Some said that formerly, the tower was made of bamboo. But later, the
Governor, Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono IX, helped to built it in a appropriate way.
Finally, the tower was moved to Jalan Magelang Km. 4,5 Yogyakarta.
The first broadcast was done on August 17, 1965 as the media to broadcast the
speech of 20th Independence Day by the vice Governor of Yogyakarta, Sri Paduka
Paku Alam VIII.

the format was still black and white. On 1973, TVRI DIY began to telecast everyday
with duration 2,5 - 3 hours after accumulated with the central station in Jakarta.

was called as "relay". It's all because TVRI was under the management of the National
TV. Therefore, it had to follow the broadcast of the central TV.
