Since the film has been released on DVD/Blue Ray, they give a timeframe in order to release on TV. We put together Free to air TV and paid TV. These two are different and also there is a time difference between releases. While paid TV (cable TV) can release almost after the film has been in movie theaters, Free to air TV takes longer to show the movie, sometimes up to 2 years. This is because whoever has the rights of the movie wants to exploit them to the fullest and to reach open TV means that everyone has access to this content.
