Abstract:
The television broadcasting industry is a significant business in all countries around the world. It does not only have socio-political, but also economic objectives. Therefore, all states have an interest in it, which they pursue by arranging their broadcasting industry based on the political system, the benefits, and the social conditions of their society. Accordingly, each country will have a different broadcasting system, even if based on the same democratic concepts. This article is based on the results of a comparative study between TV broadcasting in the United States of America and Indonesia. The methods used are evaluation and a review of articles. Although both the countries are democracies, broadcasting is different in the two countries. America is liberal, while Indonesia is not, but uses a different system, namely Pancasila. The regulatory board in America is more independent and active in its role than its counterpart in Indonesia. In the United States the extensive imposition of penalties on broadcasting companies and those who show indecency on television enable broadcasters to be more cautious in running their businesses and adhere to regulations set by the broadcasting regulator.
