* Fox constantly shows ''Film/IndependenceDay'' whenever a big event is happening on another network: Super Bowl, Oscars, etc... In fact, ''Independence Day'' airs often on ''every'' station that gets the rights to it. Even MTV, A&E, CMT, BET, Syfy, E!, AMC, Spike, Bravo, and [=VH1=] have been in on the act. There was one time, around 2009-ish, when it popped up every other weekend. Creator/{{TBS}}, Creator/{{TNT}} and Creator/WGNAmerica played it constantly, so did Creator/MyNetworkTV as a Sunday night movie and Saturday afternoon and The CW.

* Creator/NickAtNite: Their “Thursday Night Movie” block as of March 2016 seems to adore as many "not quite hit, not quite BoxOfficeBomb" movies as possible, from ''[[Film/{{Garfield}} Garfield: A Tail Of Two Kitties]]'' to ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' and [[Film/ScoobyDooMonstersUnleashed its sequel]]. It’s gotten to the point where DirectToVideo productions such as ''Film/OpenSeason 3'' (!) have aired.

*** By contrast, the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships (their professional tournament) is not as important in North America as it is elsewhere because it [[DuelingShows falls during the Stanley Cup Playoffs]]--meaning the Canadian and American teams consist mainly of NHL players from teams who didn't make it far in the playoffs, or not at all. This worked to Canada's advantage in 2015, as Pittsburgh's round 1 loss allows the team to have access to star player Sidney Crosby. 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 historically hyped up the IIHF World U20 Championships, probably as much as ESPN hypes its endless array of often meaningless bowl games that go on around the same time of the year. 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, and has frequently let Canadian cities host the "World Juniors", knowing that even the mere mention of "Team Canada" can lead to almost instantaneous sell-outs, especially if they face Russia or the U.S., reach the final, [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs or reach the final, playing against Russia or the U.S.]] Though it is still occasionally hosted by European countries, primarily the Czech Republic, Finland, and Sweden; Canada's six-year Gold medal drought let all of the aforementioned countries have some time in the spotlight.

** Spanish kids channel Boing loves ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'' so much that broadcasts at least eight episodes every day, and it's very strange to put the channel and find that they are not broadcasting ''Doraemon'' (or, for a time, earlier seasons of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''). Sadly, the logic effect of this has been the disband of all the grown-up fans who came to the channel attracted by its broadcasting ''Manga/OnePiece'' and ''Manga/Naruto Shippuden'', which now belong to a past era of Boing.

** Speaking of Pixar, they gave this treatment to ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' as of it's premiere on February 26, 2015. They aired it every single day for two weeks in a row, something which has not happened for any new Disney or Pixar movie that premiered on there. [[note]]For example, the aforementioned Toy Story 3 seemed to air twice every four or five days, and ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' played once a week during its' premiere[[/note]]. Like the Lion King example on the Disney page, they often aired the movie twice in a row, which happened the day it premiered. Nowadays, [[TooSoon after one of these screenings played at the same time as the Brussels attacks]] [[/note]] because at the time it happened, they were up to the scene where [[spoiler: Joy and Bing Bong fall in the memory dump]][[note]], the movie's airings were cut down. Now it only airs once every two days, and only during the early morning or prime time.
