Internet users in Indonesia reached 171.17 million in 2019. Data on Spring 2014 Global Attitudes mentioned that in developing countries the impact of the internet has given bad influence. It rompted the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI) to supervise the internet. However, it received disagreement from part of community by delivering the petition to reject KPI plan through www.change.org. This research aims to find out the pros and cons of KPI in supervising Netflix and YouTube content. The study used critical discourse analysis. The results revealed the polemic due to differences in interpreting the Broadcasting Law 32 of 2002, especially regarding ‘other media’ whether it includes the internet or not; whether Netflix and YouTube are included television broadcasting or video on demand (VOD) cable television identification; or whether KPI has been given the authority to supervise them. In the context perspective, KPI conveyed that the discourse was in line with the phenomenon where the creativity of internet users increased and television programs quality were below the standard. KPI should convey these issues to the Indonesian Parliament. The KPI supervision must have clear legal basis first, and do not obstruct internet users’ creativity.
