** As of 2017, the cable rights to The Lego Movie belong to Time Warner's networks. Nowadays, you can expect one of the older Dreamworks films that aren't on the FX channels anymore, to be shown on here. Other popular choices right now include [[Film/AlvinandtheChipmunks Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip]], and ''WesternAnimation/ThePeanutsMovie''

* One of the most common criticisms aimed at Creator/{{Capcom}} is that they tend to hyperfocus on one or two franchises at a time while neglecting or ignoring all of their others. During the mid 2000s, it seemed there was no shortage of ''Franchise/MegaMan'' spinoff games or ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' titles, while 2D fighting games such as ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' stayed locked away with many fans wondering if those games would ever return. Eventually, [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV they]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3 did,]] only for ''Mega Man'' and ''Devil May Cry'' to take their place and be demoted to primarily re-releases and collections of old games.[[/folder]]

* VideoGame/SuperFighter: A somewhat unusual example. Even though this ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'' [[TheMockbuster clone]] was created by the Taiwanese company C&E, but it was the American video game company Super Fighter Team who have given it this treatment, even adopting the name of this game for their company.

** When it comes to college football, ESPN practically ''[[http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/25/sports/ncaafootball/college-footballs-most-dominant-player-its-espn.html?ref=media&_r=1& runs the show]]''; they have lucrative broadcast deals with all the major conferences (particularly the SEC, Big Ten, and ACC, among the most powerful conferences in Division I FBS) which is a practically a license to print and give their schools money by default, ESPN chooses start times for its games, and they even coded software used by the majority of the teams to help build their game schedules, meaning nearly all of the college schedules at the start of the season have the time ''TBA'' everywhere. In 2011, ESPN started an entire cable network devoted to the Texas Longhorns, then created the SEC Network in 2014, and will be launching ACC Network in 2019. During the post-season, they have broadcast rights to all but three bowl games (including the all-important College Football Playoff that also stole Fox's sole bowl game, the Cotton Bowl Classic, away from them, as if losing the BCS to ESPN was bad enough) and even run ''thirteen of their own.'' (Of the non-ESPN bowls, CBS has been long-time broadcaster of the Sun Bowl, CBS Sports Network and American Sports Network respectively got the newly-established Cure Bowl and Arizona Bowl games in 2015, and the Foster Farms Bowl in San Francisco made a hop to Fox in 2016. NFL Network airs some of the "all-star" games with potential NFL prospects, such as the Senior Bowl)

*** 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 tends to be a consolation prize for not making it or losing during the first round.

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 U20 Championships 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; they've frequently given the "World Juniors" to Canadian host cities, knowing that even the mere mention of "Team Canada" can lead to almost instantaneous sell-outs, especially if they [[TheRival playing Russia or the United States.]], reach the final, or are [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs playing against Russia or the U.S. in the final]].
