Zurich Chess Challenge 2013 on Indian National TV (DD)

Zurich Chess challenge was won by Fabiano Caruana ahead of Kramnik, Gelfand and Anand (23-Feb to 1-Mar).

DD (Door Darshan) is India's national TV channel and the show will be aired on the following days:
1st Episode - 9th April 2013
2nd Episode - 10th April 2013
3rd Episode - 11th April 2013
4th Episode - 12th April 2013
(All episodes from 11pm - 11:30pm IST)

With all due respect to Mr Vijay, I am not sure who would want to watch a tournament footage more than a month after it is over?!
Fans either prefer to watch it live (or a day late maybe) or probably 50 years later for historical reasons!
Moreover, the air time is 11pm when half of them would be asleep. Just goes to show Chess is NOT important!

PS. Maybe if they post it on Youtube, the videos would get more viewers
