* Amazon Video looked like it was quickly priming itself to take Netflix's place in the NoExportForYou list. The service was only available in the Americas, the UK, half of Europe, Japan, and India. They also have some highly-desirable exclusives, thanks to having [[Creator/AmazonStudios their own production company]]. In mid-2016, rumor started spreading that they are planning to go global by 2017 in a bid to take on Netflix - due to the ''The Grand Tour'' cast mentioning on social media that the show will be available in over 200 countries worldwide come December 2016, followed shortly later with a suspiciously timed press release from Amazon claiming that they'll be rolling out localized webstores in Asia-Pacific countries by early 2017). Then, on December 13th, 2016, it happened- Amazon's streaming service went global, true to the words of the crew of ''The Grand Tour''. Overnight, over 200 countries gained access to a library of Amazon original content, including ''The Grand Tour'' and ''Creative Galaxy''. However, global coverage is weak at this time, with only a small sampling of shows and movies available compared to the other countries which got access earlier. Nonetheless, the outlook is bright and many are expecting more content to become available in time. Amazon is even giving these countries a lower Prime subscription cost to compensate for the lack of content. Global subscribers also need to use [[http://www.primevideo.com a different URL]] to access the content as opposed to those in countries where the service was launched earlier. Still, it is a good start.

* The most famous new-media example of this trope is {{Creator/Hulu}}, which you've probably seen linked to in a forum. It constantly bills itself as offering free (albeit ad-supported), legal TV over the Internet, and they're right... as long as you live in the United States or Japan. If you're not, all you get is an error message. Note that this even applies to shows which air legally on regular TV outside America -- you can't even watch an episode that aired last week which you might have missed. The only other country that currently has access to Hulu is Japan.

* BBC Entertainment Asia became unavailable to Malaysia in December 2015 (This isn't the first time, the Channel was unavailable in Malaysia between 2009 and 2012 either). However, the drop happened during the initial run of Series 9 of Series/DoctorWho- anything after ''The Zygon Inversion'' has not aired in the country. Both cable providers in the country and BBC Entertainment themselves have been unapologetic, and Malaysian Whovians are becoming frustrated and annoyed.

*** Update: since at least 2012 there has been an international version of iPlayer available which allows viewing of a selected number of shows for free (usually stuff like old episodes of ''Series/DoctorWho'' and a fee-based service for other content. Not everything available on iPlayer in the UK is available on the international version, however, and the fee-based service is largely only open to European countries, the Americas and Asians still get the short end of the stick. And to make things worse, in 2014 there are rumors that the service may get discontinued due to budget cuts, which manifested in mid-2015 when the pay iPlayer service covering Europe was shut down.

*** Another update: As of late 2016- the Americas now have access to the iPlayer service... Except that as it turns out, it's only radio content. In the meantime, Singapore has become the latest country to receive a fully functional [=iPlayer=] [[http://www.bbcasia.com/bbc-player/ (now rebranded as BBC Player, without the "i")]], which is a kick in the groin to fans of BBC shows who're living in neighboring Malaysia, who are clamoring for a local [=iPlayer=] release.
