As you already know, TheTVDB is a community-driven database of TV and movie metadata. All of the information we collect is available through our API, which developers access from their program, app, website, or service. With tens of millions of people accessing our API every month, it's quite expensive to run. Please consider a subscription to help support us.
We understand not everyone can or wants to help support the site financially. You can still get involved to help all of the projects that use our API by contributing data through our points portal. Contribute data to earn points, placement on our leaderboard, and a free subscription.
