** In December 2009, Astro Malaysia dropped BBC Entertainment Asia from their network, halfway through a Series 4 repeat airing of the show. The provider's excuse was that the channel offered nothing new, although many viewers suspected it had something to do with Jeremy Clarkson dissing and subsequently destroying a ''Perodua Kancil'', one of the two national cars, on Series/TopGear a few weeks prior. This move denied Malaysian Whovians off Doctor Who until 2012, when BBC Entertainment once again became available, this time over a different provider. However, in December 2015, the other provider chose to drop the network. The biggest kick in the groin was that the provider dropped the channel halfway through Season 9 of Doctor Who, right before the season finale three parter. The story has a happy ending, however- Netflix picked up the show in June 2016 and season 9 became available in September of that year, and BBC First finally launched on [=HyppTV=] in October 2016, with the remainder of Season 9 as one of it's launch titles.[[note]]As it turned out, BBC Worldwide was planning to discontinue the BBC Entertainment Asia brand in the region in favor of launching BBC First, a provider-centric VOD service, and had chose to not allow providers to renew their contracts, instead working with providers to integrate the VOD service into their system, with the goal of switching all providers over to BBC First and then shutting down the BBC Entertainment Asia feed.[/note]

** BBC Worldwide's Asia arm has never been good with the specials (Easter specials are outright skipped over, while other specials are chosen at it's own discretion, irrelevant of the interest shown on social media). However, most egregiously, The Time of The Doctor was skipped over back in 2013, and this special is important as it showcases the regeneration of Matt Smith to Peter Capaldi, and regenerations are extremely important events to Whovians. [[http://www.bbc-asia.com/contact/?page=3 Many have written to the BBC]], who claims that they have noted the interest of Asian viewers in the episode, but have announced that it will not be aired in the near future. [[BadExportForYou It finally aired in mid-Febuary 2015, during Chinese New Year and over a year after it's premiere in other regions]], but BBC Entertainment Asia will still hand pick which specials it will and will not show in the future. And oh, the pre-2005 episodes have never been aired on BBC Asia's feeds, either.

* Due to {{Nickelodeon}} Japan's shutdown in 2009 (The channel was stepped down to a block on Creator/{{Animax}} in Japan and even then that block was later off the air), Japanese Nicksters have no access to cool new sitcoms like ''Series/{{Victorious}}'', later seasons of ''Series/ICarly'' (which is probably a mercy, as the Japanese got spared from the horrid mess that is the Seddie Arc), ''Series/HowToRock'' or even other stuff like ''HouseOfAnubis'' and ''Series/EveryWitchWay''. Averted with some shows like ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' and recently ''Series/TheThundermans'', both airing on NHK. Kinda makes you wonder who gets to dub them if the channel didn't close.

** And Americans are ''just lucky'' to not be part of that group. According to TheOtherWiki, the Pythons didn't think their humor was exportable at all; it was only because an executive at a single PBS station happened upon some episodes, liked it, and had the show put on his station that America was exposed to the ''Flying Circus'' and later movies. (One reason for the Pythons being hesitant is because MontyPythonsFlyingCircus had been subjected to a BadExportForYou scenario in the early 1970s when the American commercial network ABC broadcasted several episodes as a special, but in highly censored form.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Victoria}}'': Although primarily a UK production, it is also co-produced by PBS for ''Masterpiece''. Since the PBS broadcast does not have commercial interruption, episodes run about 5 minutes longer than they do on ITV in the UK. UK fans are not able to see the additional scenes as the DVD/Blu-ray release only has the original ITV version and online versions are also only ITV edits; UK residents cannot view PBS's online streams of the episodes.

Added DiffLines:

* Upon the introduction of television in the country in 1976, some production companies refused to export their programs to South Africa's state broadcaster SABC as a cultural boycott of the apartheid policies. The United Kingdom's actors' union Equity had a similar policy, which effectively banned the majority of British television productions from airing in the country until 1993.
