The Movie Database Support

Hey guys,

Are there any plans to support this feature? This could be used to check if there is any "The Walking Dead" episode airing today, for example.

Hi HelloTiago,

The only thing you can do right now that is episode based is call the airing_today method:

This is the same list you'll find on the website:

We don't have a specific episode search by date method at this time.

Please note, the airing_today method does not currently support passing in a timezone to offset what "today" is. I have an outstanding ticket about that here.

Hey Travis,

Oh I hadn't noticed that method, I'll see if I can work something out with that.


FYI—You can now pass a timezone into the /3/airing_today method.

A simple example, checking the list of shows that air today in Calgary:

Vs. the shows that are airing today in Sydney:

What this is actually doing is calculating the offset from UTC GMT, so in this case (as I'm writing this) it's the 22nd of March in Sydney.
