Yes we finished SG1 series 8 before US did. Also in Canada and UK they are showing new eps of SG1/Atlantis and US are on a break.
That's because Stargate is a Canadian production (well according to zen. I hate the series so I know nothing about it).
Read what I wrote: "Shows created in the US are shown on US tv first, much like British and Australian shows (and every other country that creates local content)"
So if they want to then they can, dont say they cant because it just is not true. They bought the rights so they can air it whenever they want to.
They have rights to broadcast it, but they don't get the whole series before it airs in its country of origin. 24 has never, ever been shown in Australia before the US so thinking they might do otherwise is silly.
I'm aware there are exceptions, hence the 'very rarely', but for the most part US shows are shown in the US first. British shows are shown in Britain first. Canadian shows are shown in Canada first. You get the drift.
Anyway, this argument is utterly pointless. Seven obviously aren't showing any 24 episodes before the US so you're wrong.
