What isn't being brought to you by some product ? News, sports, conventions, olumpics, venues, etc.

But they could go further -

How about naming rights for the actual news events,

"SuperStorm Sandy is being brought to you by Home Depot, You can do it. We can help"

or

"General Petraeus extramarital affair is being brought to you by Cialis"

I heard this come up today on NPR. They were talking about the disagreement between the Weather Channel and NOAA about naming winter storms. The Weather Channel has named this latest nor'easter Athena and the NWS wants no part of that. That led to a discussion about the privatization of storm names along the lines you mentioned.

A couple years ago, the Chicago Bears were considering being sponsored like that. Apparently the outraged fans talked them down.
