The Movie Database Support


I want to get all the TV shows info.

Then if i do I can see "total_pages": 3093, "total_results": 61856

But there is a max page limit 1000, which means i can not get page further than 1000.

But if i do filter by air_date:

I get: "total_pages": 375, "total_results": 7487

and i get: "total_pages": 802, "total_results": 16021

7487+16021 = 23508

The total numbers are not even close.

So how can i get all of these IDs?

Hi bennyae,

If you would like to bring down all of the data, you would be best to iterate though the ids instead. Start ad id 1 and run all the way up to the latest id found in /tv/latest. Discover isn't designed for this task.

Hi Travis, this link is not deprecated. We would like to bring down all the TV data but would like to know how many records there are an the /tv/latest is deprecated. Can you tell me how else we can do this. Thank you.

@swagle The new link to /tv/latest is here.

A lot of has changed since 2015, if you are wanting to get all of the valid TV ids, you're better off using the newer daily ID exports. You can read about this here.

I there a way where we can limit the list size per page?

Hi @Purshotham, no, all of our page sizes are locked at 20 items.
