* Blizzard Entertainment was seen to suffer from this as well, as they worked on various ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' games and expansions for almost a decade straight before ''VideoGame/StarCraftII'' and ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' were announced. (The one Franchise/StarCraft product in the making, ''Ghost'', became VaporWare.) Lately, they've completely flipped this trope on the head, and seem to be just gushing new games - ''Reaper of Souls'', ''Hearthstone'', and ''Heroes of the Storm'' all within a year of each other.

** 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 four 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)

** 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. It's gotten to the point that any game involving Team Canada, especially if they are [[TheRival playing Russia or the United States]], reach the final, or [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs reach a final against Russia or the United States]], is guaranteed to have a good television audience. When the tournament is hosted by Canada (which happens quite a bit), these scenarios frequently result in sell-out crowds too. However, the international prominence of the tournament has grown too; Canada's six-year drought has given other countries 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, the atmosphere could have easily been mistaken for a game involving Canada.

* The ''Shrek'' films, specifically the first two are played ''to death'' on Turner networks, particularly on Cartoon Network and Atlanta station WPCH-TV (Peachtree TV). The latter in particular airs the first two movies on what seems like almost ''every weekend''.
** Ditto for fellow DreamWorks film ''WesternAnimation/SharkTale'', as it pops up on CN and Peachtree TV quite often.



* Tyler Perry's films, specifically ones featuring the signature Madea character seem to air at least ''once a week'' across various cable channels. Often it seems that if one airs, the others will start to air as well. BET is particularly fond of them.

** Speaking of Pixar, they gave this treatment to ''WesternAnimation/InsideOut'' as of it's premiere on February 26, 2016. 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]], the movie's airings were cut down. Now it only airs once every four days, and only during the early morning or prime time.
*** They reversed this in September of 2016, when the movie started to air on every weekend possible, with the first airing in a while playing the same day ''Disney/DisneyOnIce Presents Follow Your Heart'' premiered. It took until December 23rd for Starz Kids to bring it back into daily rotation.

* 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.
