Up to December 2019, the website had to constantly change its site address to elude regulators following renewed scrutiny of digital piracy. On Dec. 24, IndoXXI posted an announcement that it would stop streaming movies as of Jan. 1. “It’s hard, but it must be done,” the text read.

On Dec. 26, the government blocked more than 1,000 websites that stream bootlegged videos. Communications and Information Minister Johnny G. Plate said the measure was necessary to prevent further damage to Indonesia’s creative industry and its business relationships with other countries.

A recent survey conducted by global public opinion and data company YouGov revealed that 63 percent of online consumers in Indonesia preferred to watch premium content through illegal torrent websites.

Among the 35 percent of those using illegal means, IndoXXI’s website and app were the most popular channels to watch movies for free.
