** 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 ''Series/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.)

* ''Series/ShiningTimeStation'' was exported to Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines, but many other countries didn't get the show. This was probably due to the show's status of being EditedForSyndication, where they took old WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine episodes from the BBC and stuffed additional human characters into it (similar to what was being done with Series/TheNoddyShop), and other countries' networks thought it was a waste of resources, especially when they already have the rights to the real deal.

** Unless you could receive BBC in Ireland, it was impossible to watch Doctor Who. RTE never showed it, despite buying a run of Pertwee episodes in 1980 and airing Blake's 7, various ITV sci-fi series from Catweazle to Into the Labyrinth, BBC series as varied as the Good Old Days, but officially not until TG4 aired some Pertwee stories in 1999, did it get a proper airing here.

** There are also no signs of any toku series being released in America in their original, unadapted forms. Some exceptions: ''Film/KamenRiderTheFirst'' (a movie, not a show) was released in North America in 2007 under the name ''Masked Rider: The First''; to date, it is the only subtitled Japanese {{Toku}}satsu that was widely available in American stores. But not UK ones. There have also been box sets put out for series like ''Series/KamenRiderV3'' and ''Series/{{Kikaider}}'', made for the Hawaiian market and thus not widely available; they are, however, sold on the Internet, with Kikaider's being under the title ''Kikaida''. Japanese ''[[Series/SpiderManJapan Spider-Man]]'' was streamed on {{Creator/Marvel}}'s website for a while before being taken down in a redesign, and Sentai shows from ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'' to ''Series/ChourikiSentaiOhranger'' (With ''Series/GekisouSentaiCarranger'' soon to be released) got official DVD releases by Shout Factory.

** South Korea, which does dub Sentai (albeit [[CompletelyDifferentTitle under the name of]] ''Franchise/PowerRangers'') never received a dub of ''Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger'', purportedly for being too Japanese. [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros They eventually appeared]] in the dubs of ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' and ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger''.

* The story of ''Series/TheDailyShow'' and ''Series/TheColbertReport'' is long, complicated and sad for anyone in the UK. Originally, the ArchivePanic-inducing clip libraries on the Creator/ComedyCentral website were available to all. Then Canada lost access, and then Britain. Full Episodes mode was introduced and just as quickly made inaccessible to the UK. ''The Daily Show'' used to air the day after it was shown in the US on More4 but then they dropped it in favor of the Global Edition. ''The Colbert Report'' was picked up for UK distribution by FX, and, well, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork it didn't last]]. Now the only legal option for UK viewers is to buy the ''Report'' on iTunes, at £10 a month.

* ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'', despite being wildly popular in his native U.S., was never broadcast outside of America, though many Canadians were able to watch the show due to the widespread availability of PBS on cable. However knowledge of the show was exported by expatriates and through Popcultural Osmosis via references by shows that do get exported. The Twitch marathon stream is practically the first time anyone outside the US and Canada is officially getting to watch the show.
