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

Hi @jaspercatstudios,

The main way to get network IDs would be to use the daily ID exports.

How to find network ID of movie? For e.g. movie may available on netflix or amazon prime or more..

Network IDs are available for the TV shows only.

And P.S. we don't have streaming service availability data. We only maintain the network data where a show was originally broadcasted.

Hey @travisbell

How do you create the association between the network and movie on themoviedb.org? For example if I click through to Artemis Fowl (a movie), it specifically states that it's streaming on Disney. Is this purely done through the API or do you have some other association internal to your application?

Thanks.

TMDb uses JustWatch services.
When you click on the link below the poster, you go to the page with the links provided by JustWatch.
An example
https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/429617-spider-man-far-from-home/watch?language=en-US
In my case, the film Artemis Fowl (2020) does not show a link or information that is being streaming by Disney.
Probably because it is not available in my country, Brazil.

Is this purely done through the API or do you have some other association internal to your application?

No, it is not done by the API. The association is made using data provided by JustWatch.
In addition, the TMDb API does not provide or send this JustWatch data.

Great, thanks for your summary.
