The Movie Database Support

I have tried even changing the DNS and what not . I am doing this using php curl.All the requests have been failed.

On command line it looks like this:

curl -v "https://api.themoviedb.org/3/movie/550?api_key=####" * Could not resolve host: api.themoviedb.org * Closing connection 0

curl: (6) Could not resolve host: api.themoviedb.org_

<?php
 $URL = "https://api.themoviedb.org/3/movie/550?api_key=####";

        $curl = curl_init();
        curl_setopt_array($curl, array(
            CURLOPT_URL => $URL,
            CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
            CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION => true,
            CURLOPT_ENCODING => "",
            CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS => 10,
            CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 30,
             CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST => "GET",
            CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER => false, 
            CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION => CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_1,
            CURLOPT_VERBOSE => false,
        ));

        $response = curl_exec($curl);
        $err = curl_error($curl);
        curl_close($curl);
        $data = json_decode($response);
        print_r($data);
        if($err){
            echo "CURL ERROR: ".$err;
        }
?>

We have heard that in some countries access to TMDb Servers has been blocked for some time.

  • India: for legal reasons
  • China: no one knows why
  • Bulgaria: I don't remember why

In wich country are you?
Using VPN?
Can you access directly using your browser?

Yaa I figured out that My ISP has blocked it and I am unable to make any API requests but the whole website itself is totally fine.The problems arises when accessing using the CURL . It's worked when I switched to the mobile hotspot and problem became more clear after walking through the forums and reading articles related to that some countries have blocked the usage of the aforementioned. Anyways thanks for answering.
