If you're reading this article, that means we're finally open to the public.
Before we talk about TVmaze it might be interesting to know who created the site. Behind the curtains there isn't a big company but a small group of friends. Friends who just happen to be TV fanatics and spend way too much time watching and looking up information about the shows they love.
We are addicted to the medium and consume it like no other. This addiction is also one of the driving forces behind the creation of TVmaze. But there is another reason why we embarked on this endeavour.
After years of going through the information provided on other sites, some of us started noticing quite a few inconsistencies between the information provided by the different TV related sites we frequented. What often seems to happen with this information, is that it's taken from one single source with little to no verification and then presented to the user as fact.
With that in mind, we got together to create a beautiful website that compares all the different sources on the web and combines it with the knowledge of a team of TV enthusiasts. This ensures that anything you look up on TVmaze will likely be more accurate than any other site you'll ever visit.
So, after lots of hard work, we are proud to present you TVmaze!
Of course the fact that we're open doesn't mean our work here is done! We already have a lot of exciting new features in the pipeline, but most of all we'd like to hear from you, our users, what you are looking for. Register for an account (it'll only take a few seconds!) and leave some feedback here or in our forums, and we'll be sure to listen.
