Chess on Network Television

It just gets better and better. A few months ago we had Chess Broadcasting Gets Professional (February 2017). Now we add network television to the mix.

Paris Grand Chess Tour: How To Broadcast Chess On Television? (4:38) • 'The Paris Grand Chess Tour is being broadcast on French TV by Canal+. IM Malcolm Pein and IM Almira Skripchenko discuss the topic of broadcasting chess successfully on TV. '

For the second year in a row, Vivendi sponsors and hosts the Paris Grand Chess Tour, the first stop of the most prestigious chess tournament with the world’s best players. The tournament will be shown live on Dailymotion from June 21 to 25, from 2pm to 6:30pm. The highlights will also be broadcast each day at 11:30pm on Canal+ Sport. The first three days (June 21-23) will be dedicated to “rapid” games (approximately 1 hour) and the two following days (June 24-25) to “Blitz” games (approximately 15 minutes).

The Canal+ Sport highlights don't seem to be available on the web, but we might eventually see an example.
