When I lived in West Berlin, Germany I had a TV that could receive all 3 of the world's television broadcast standards used in 1978: NTSC (North America), PAL (most of Europe), and SECAM (France and the Soviet Union). Our AFN (American Forces Network) broadcast to us in NTSC, but if you brought a US set over with you it couldn't receive anything else locally, just AFN.
In the divided city of East/West Berlin there were broadcasts in all 3 standards, so I bought this trick TV. And since Berlin was still an occupied city following WWII, I got Brit TV programs, West German programs, French programs, East German programs, and Soviet/Russian programs.
And the difference in the news stories was amazing. I could follow the French & German news, and my wife was fluent in Russian. A news item about the US would have a totally different, and often unflattering slant when reported by other news services, even from our close allies the British, as compared to the sanitized versions our US news services provided.
And US news often wouldn't even cover major international stories, presumably because the editors felt the US audience wouldn't be interested. If you're living in the US you're never aware of this happening, because you're being kept in the dark.
BTW, West German TV had lots of full frontal male & female nudity during evening hours. You haven't lived until you've seen a Wagner opera performed in the nude.
