The Movie Database Support

 Ongoing Maintenance

Dear TMDb Community,

In the next few months, you might notice some changes on our site. My primary goal is, and always has been, to build the best media database on the internet and in order for me to stay true to that goal, we will be making these changes to enable TMDb to be more robust and reliable than before.

As you might recall from my 2019 recap, I have some pretty amazing plans for 2020 so stay tuned for some really fantastic launches this year!

If you have any questions please contact us at support@themoviedb.org.

Sincerely,

Travis

There are already ratings for the Netherlands.

NOTE: list in first post is very not complete, firstpost hasn't been updated, haha! Better check before asking if ratings are available for either movies and/or TV. For the Netherlands, they are both added.

My bad, I didn't check. Thanks!

Hi,

Here is updated and official ratings for Slovakia. The one before in this thread was old. This is official from Goverment documents http://www.culture.gov.sk/pravny-ramec-ca.html. You can find it at this pdf in full extend http://www.culture.gov.sk/legdoc/23/ . Also please add icons for this rating system, it is from goverment site, just converted to png https://ulozto.net/!RnLOpuLiHK4A/slovak-pictograms-tv-film-zip (Click on slow download, do the captcha thing and click on download button).

In Slovak language:

And one last thing. This Rating system is ALSO for MOVIES. Please, add this to that also. Thanks!

Ratings for the Philippines?

There's a section on it, on that wikipedia guide you (@travisbell) linked.

If there needs to be further research put into it, then I'm more than happy to make some efforts (though its debatable how valuable my efforts will be grin)

Nmv, this is already available.

@travisbell

a good reference : movielabs ratings

I dont think so. They have weird ratings for Slovakia, which are not even used here... We use something totaly different. Only game rating match up.

There's often data for Singapore's television ratings since they tend to be more strict than many other jurisdictions, even on streaming content in major global languages. Since they're listed on the Wikipedia page you cited it might be worth considering adding them to the mix.

Hi, Can you please add Norway.

  • A - allowed for everyone - can be aired at any time
  • 6+ - allowed for those over 6 - can be aired at any time
  • 9+ - allowed for those over 9 - can be aired at any time
  • 12+ - allowed for those over 12 - can be aired only from 19:00 ( 7:00pm) to 05:30 (5:30am)
  • 15+ - allowed for those over 15 - can be aired only from 21:00 ( 9:00pm) to 05:30 (5:30am)
  • 18+ - allowed for those over 18 - can be aired only from 21:00 ( 9:00pm) to 05:30 (5:30am)

The exception is the Norwegian channels that transmit from abroad, such as FEM, MAX, TV3, Viasat 4 and Canal +. These channels follow the rules that apply in the country they transmit from.

Best regards, JUs90KL83

In Portugal the movie Aladdin in the cinema with subtitles is M/12, but the same movie in the cinema, folded in Portuguese is M/6. And I can only add 1, I would add the two.

Hi. The guide on Wikipedia is outdated for Ukraine.
According to the legislative source (Google translation),

The certification system of Ukraine:
ДА - Дитяча аудиторія
ЗА - Загальна аудиторія
12 - До 12 років тільки у присутності батьків
16 - До 16 років перегляд забороняється
18 - До 18 років перегляд забороняється

The same in English:
DA - Children audience
ZA - General audience
12 - Under 12 must be accompanied by an adult
16 - Under 16 not admitted
18 - Under 18 not admitted

Hey @nikolajskov I'll get the Danish data added on Monday.

Hi Travis I get error when trying to add for "Denmark"

Error The country you are trying to add has not been added to TMDb. Click here to see if it can be added.

...so, it does not look like it's "Monday" yet :P ?

Danish media-council

an e.g. The Blacklist

EDIT: Sweden = Rek. fr.: 15 år (For ages 15 years and up (young down to 11 years accompanied by an adult).) Denmark = Tilladt for børn over 15 år (For ages 15 and up.) Norway = Anbefalt aldersgrense: 15 år (15 years (young down to 12 years accompanied by an adult).)

Finland = 16 (K-16 – For people 16 years or older. Under 16s require parental guidance for admittance into the film.) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnish_Board_of_Film_Classification

Can we get ratings for New Zealand? see here.

It may be interesting to update the initial list.
I checked the list countries for both TV and Movie
I could not find how to enter the CA-QC (Canada - Quebec) certification.
