* A Canadian example is Family Channel (Canada's Creator/DisneyChannel, not to be confused with the original name for Creator/ABCFamily), who went through a period at one point where the only movie they seemed to ever play was the ''Film/AroundTheWorldInEightyDays'' remake with Creator/JackieChan.

** As well as ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'', which have been ported or remade for {{MSX2}}, UsefulNotes/WonderSwan Color, UsefulNotes/PlayStation, UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance, mobile phones, [=PlayStation=] Portable, Virtual Console, [=PlayStation=] Network and iOS. This is perhaps due to both games being are the most simple in the series. They include little to no plot, a few enemies (for a final fantasy game), a few classes (6 in FFI[[note]]Fighter, Thief, Black Belt, and the White, Red, and Black Magi[[/note]], none in FFII) and the game mechanics in general are simple. In contrast, the more complex games hardly ever see the light, most likely since they are not as easy to make as I or II but not as popular as IV or II.

*** By contrast, the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships (its counterpart for professional players) is not considered to be as important in North America as it is elsewhere because it [[DuelingShows falls during the NHL's Stanley Cup Playoffs]]. This means that star players remain committed to their NHL teams if they make the playoffs, and a chance to be on the Canadian or American national team tends to be a consolation prize for not making it or losing during the first round. This worked to Canada's advantage in 2015, as star player Sidney Crosby was able to join the national team when Pittsburgh got eliminated in round 1. They [[CurbStompBattle promptly crushed every opponent they met]], including Russia in the final: critics were quick to point out that Canada's dream team would be impossible to form in the NHL because it was ''way'' over the salary cap.

** In a more specific example, TSN has ''always'' hyped the IIHF World Junior Championships (the top international under-20 competition, which traditionally begins on the day after Christmas), as being Canada's holiday sports tradition (much like ESPN's endless array of meaningless college bowl games). The tournament is treated with ''much'' more importance in Canada than in any other country, owing to the aforementioned hype, the fact that they've won it 16 times, and that one year where the Canadian team got into a ''twenty minute, bench-clearing brawl'' with the Soviets that ejected them both from the tournament. Even the IIHF has realized this; the tournament is frequently hosted by Canada, because it is common knowledge that any game involving Team Canada, especially if they are [[TheRival playing Russia or the United States]], reach the final, or reach the final [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs playing against Russia or the United States]], will have near-instantaneous sell-outs and guaranteed television viewership. Canada's six-year drought let gave other countries have some time in the spotlight, including the Czech Republic, Finland, and Sweden, and the U.S. When Finland won the tournament at home in 2016 in overtime in front of a sold-out crowd, the atmosphere could have easily been mistaken for a game involving Canada.

*** In the UK, Creator/{{ITV}} had them from 1975 through 2012, when they were acquired by the premium channel Sky Movies. They then took Adored by the Network to its obvious conclusion in October 2012 by [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2012/aug/07/james-bond-sky-movies-007 turning one of its channels into Sky Movies 007]], dedicated exclusively to airing the films (and other documentaries/behind the scenes features) in honor of the 50th anniversary of the ''Bond'' movie franchise. The channel was temporarily taken down in November 2012 to make way for its annual [[ChristmasMoviesIndex all-Christmas movies]] channel, but came back off and on throughout 2013. ITV has since got the rights back.

* ABC and ABC Family (now Creator/{{Freeform}}) milked ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' marathons even more frequently than Spike did with ''Star Wars''. In almost every season of the year, there is a ''Harry Potter'' marathon on ABC Family. They would often take it to the max whenever another ''Harry Potter'' film was being released to theaters. Unfortunately for Disney, Creator/WarnerBrothers will eventually put a stop to that when, effective 2018, the broadcast rights go to [=NBCUniversal=], and unlike their original deal with Disney, WB has given USA Network and Syfy (and potentially NBC as well)) exclusive broadcast rights to special DirectorsCut editions of the first two movies.

* Tyler Perry's films, specifically ones featuring the signature Madea character seem to air at least ''once a week'' across various cable channels. BET is particularly fond of them.

* Going along with the aforementioned examples of premium channels above, said channels in general will constantly the same films over and over to the point that they can be seen every week, if not ''every day''. If a movie premieres (typically on Friday), you can expect it to air several more times throughout the weekend into the next week.
