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



Hi, I would like to sign up for v5 API key so I can add the streaming service features to my app. Do I need to reapply for a key? Also since the streaming links are linked through JustWatch is there a separate request limit on usage for that or is it still the same 40/10 seconds limit? Thank you, Nafee

Hi there,

There is no "v5" API. V5 is the codename for the upcoming website.

At this time, we are not allowed to share the JustWatch data on the API. On a side note, we have been talking recently together though, and we might be coming up with an option later this year. I make absolutely no guarantees, but there is a dialog going on between us for this.

Thanks for the reply Travis. Hopefully, you guys can work something out. In the meantime how would I display where a movie is available like you have it on the v5 version of tmdb website? Is that possible with the current API?

Regards, Nafee

You'll have to contact a provider like JustWatch and see if you can get the data from them.
