The Movie Database Support


I'm looking for functionality or a second API to be able to get the streaming platforms in which movies/tv shows can be streamed on. I know TV Shows has 'networks' but I'm wondering if anyone knows of an API out there to get this information for both Movies and TV Shows? Any insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards - Michael `

Do you need this to generate an output or just for personal use? If the latter, using the settings at should help you out. Having just checked a random movie it may go by country as a movie is shown as "streaming on" a service I don't have, but would be available if I paid Apple.

Thanks for the quick reply - I need this to generate an output. Perhaps I should have put this into API section but I figured I'd add it here since I don't think the TMDB API has this feature. I want to build it into an app I'm developing to be able to list which platforms you can stream a specific movie or tv show

API + Streaming.
The source of this information is JustWatch.
For the time being TMDb can only put this information on the Site.
TMDb is not yet authorized to make it available through the API.
There are talks. But nothing decided.

Our availability data is powered by JustWatch and is not available on the API at this time.
We've been discussing some options with JustWatch to allow this but have not decided on anything specific just yet.

We do not currently provide this information on the API, it's a website only feature at the moment.
Our license with JustWatch doesn't allow for it to be used on the API at this time.

Perhaps this news can help.

Thank you for this information - Cheers!
