[mythtv-users] RfC: Broadcast of new TV shows on different time-zones

Please help me to understand how broadcasting of new TV-Shows is handled in
countries with multiple time-zones.
Big companies and networks tend to place their new shows in a timely manner
to get the best attention by the
audience, e.g.: at prime time.
How is this topic handled at countries like US, Canada, Mexico, Australia
etc. where a release of a new show is
pinned to a dedicated time-zone (i.e.: location) but broadcasted the same
day overall in that country.
The reason for this request for comment is that some metadata grabber
already provide exact data, like tvmaze.py.
The forum issue https://forum.mythtv.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5301 asks
exactly that.
Please respond to the forum if you are already registered, otherwise post
Especially of interest is this question: Do different networks / providers
stick to the same rules?
This includes different types of TV reception, like OTA, cable, satellite,
streaming, too.

Thank you for helping MythTV,
