* Pay cable channels such as Creator/{{HBO}} and Creator/{{Cinemax}} show screens before any films they air that show the film's MPAA rating and what it means (until at least the mid-'90s, these content warnings were also read aloud by announcers). Notably, a slightly modified version preceded ''Film/{{Excalibur}}'', a film that was originally rated R but was cut into PG.

* When you launch ''VisualNovel/DokiDokiLiteratureClub'', the game opens with a warning that it contains disturbing content and is not suitable for children or those not good with such material. It even provides a link to a webpage that elaborates that the game [[SurpriseCreepy is not what it seems]], and contains themes like [[spoiler:depression, suicide, self harm, and abuse]]. It doesn't just go straight to the main menu, either, but instead requires you to press a button to say you understand.

[[spoiler: The content warning turns out to be a sort-of BaitAndSwitch; It's a genuine content warning, but the game leads you to believe it's only to do with the rather heavy issues the DysfunctionJunction cast of girls are facing, rather than the metafictional existential horror that eventually ensues.]]

Added DiffLines:

* When ''Series/ForensicFiles'' still aired on Court TV, several different episodes had content warnings on them, which included references to or ''images of'' sexual assault, [[{{Gorn}} graphic violence]] or even the occasional [[NightmareFuel decedent's body/autopsy photo.]] Unfortunately, these warnings do not appear on their current airings on Creator/{{HLN}}.

Added DiffLines:

* Some copies of Music/TheBeautifulSouth’s album ‘’Blue is the Colour’’ carry a sticker on the front cover reading “WARNING - Track one contains some possibly offensive blue language”. This is referring to the song “Don’t Marry Her”, which drops an F-bomb in the chorus.

* The late-1980s series ''Series/SeeingThings'' ran into a politically correct disclaimer when it was rebroadcast only a few years later, warning viewers that the depiction of women on television "was not always the same as it is now". After being ridiculed by Canadian media for political correctness, the network abandoned the disclaimer.

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' and ''[[Anime/YoKaiWatch Yo-Kai Watch]]'' are the only anime that have ever aired on Cartoon Network Philippines with a parental guidance warning. ''Gundam'' got it due to its violent nature (though some edits were still made), while Yo-Kai Watch got it due to innuendos being present in some of its' episodes. [[note]]Unlike most countries, the Philippines got a dub that was a straight translation of the original, meaning that any scenes of that matter were left in.[[note]]
