Missing a Country’s Rating System?

As mentioned above, our current list is not exhaustive when it comes to countries. If you’d like to suggest a new country’s content rating system be added to the list of available ratings, please create a support ticket under the Help Topic Suggestions. Please allow a few weeks for your country’s rating system to be implemented.

The expanded content ratings data will be available in TheTVDB’s v4 API.
