Guess what's on Iranian TV?

Guess what¡¯s on TV?
I switched between all 5 Iranian state TV channels at 13:40 and four of them had Khomeini images on them. The fifth looked like a IT games show but Khomeini¡¯s photo appeared there suddenly after 3 minutes, though in what context I knew not. No wonder, as I was told by a local, nobody watches Iranian TV. Every household that could afford has a satellite dish although it is illegal to own one. There are hundreds of channels to choose from, including the highly popular 15 Farsi language channels produced by the Iranian Diaspora in California.
