In this respect, the chapter finds inspiration in the so-called technology transfer theory (Todd 1995) and regards formats as any other technology that is transferred from one country to another and in turn has to adapt to and is influenced by the systemic conditions existing in a particular country. This means that differences between format adaptations depend more on which specific channels broadcast the adaptations, the competitive situation in the media system, production values of the adaptations, funding regimes, demographic target audiences, content regulation and media policies than on cultural values and national mentalities (see Moran and Keane 2004 for a similar view).

Stimulating Demand with Taped Versions Demand patterns in cultural industries are characterized by social contagion, leading to escalating changes through feed-back loops (Kretschmer, Klimis and Choi 1999).

Taped versions of American Idol sold to territories such as Canada, Mexico, Israel or Malaysia, have helped to drive the Idols format sales in these territories.
