Cultural influence of the UN on the USA
The USA has formal diplomatic relationships with most of the 193 states recognised by the UN
TV programmes and commercials, motion pictures, music and audio recordings, radio broadcasts, print media and video games
Much of this material is now and increasingly accessed online as well as still being available in physical form.
US film productions account for over 80% of the global cinema market.
In 2016 the world's largest grossing movie was Captain America
American TV programmes are broadcast around the world
sporting events such as the NFL Super Bowl now reach a worldwide audience through the broadcast and online media
International audience figures are difficult to calculate but an estimated 38 million watched the 49th Super Bowl in 2014
