*** ''Shinkenger'' isn't the only case where this has happened; this fate also befell ''Series/NinpuuSentaiHurricaneger'' and ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', presumably for the same reason. Oddly enough, when ''Shinkenger'' was skipped, instead of dubbing ''Hurricanger'' in it's place[[note]]presumably, Ninjas are much less taboo in South Korea than Samurai, because ''Naruto'' airs in South Korea without any difficulty[[/note]], they instead chose to air a dub of ''Series/HyakujuuSentaiGaoranger'', despite the fact that ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' was already dubbed - and to top it all off, the ''Gaoranger'' dub was ''also'' named ''Power Rangers Wild Force''.

** Of the big 4, the ''Franchise/MetalHeroes'' series has it the worst, since ''none'' of it's series have been exported in any form (unless you count ''VR Troopers'' and ''Beetleborgs'').

*** The second American adaptation of ''Kamen Rider'', ''Series/KamenRiderDragonKnight'', is an odd inversion - despite airing the majority of it's episodes on American TV[[note]]save for the last two, which would've aired had it not been for the rule the CW has regarding renewing shows, although they were posted online[[/note]], the series never got a DVD release stateside, likely due to the series bombing in the ratings. And with the episodes that were uploaded online being taken down, the only ways to watch it are to either get ahold of a DVD that was released outside (if you want to watch it legally) or use illicit streaming services.

** It's not just miniseries. Due to licensing issues, there have been numerous US-produced TV series that either can't be or for a long time were not released to home video in the US, yet received release elsewhere. Until licensing issues were finally resolved in the late 2000s, this was the case with TheSixMillionDollarMan and TheBionicWoman, which were widely available on VHS and DVD in Europe and other regions, yet could not be released in the US.
** Another rather bizarre inversion, this time from the U.K.: ''TheLastDetective'' exists on DVD in the U.S. and Australia, but ''not'' in the U.K. (Region 2 [=DVDs=] of Season 1[[labelnote:*]]four hour-long episodes[[/labelnote]] are available on Amazon... for £72.)

* Think it's bad being an anime fan in the UK? Multiply it, and that's being a {{toku}}satsu fan outside of Japan.

* Although you can get the soundtracks of ''Series/{{Galavant}}'' [[https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=galavant in the UK]], the series itself has yet to appear there.

** 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.
