Network / Web Channel endpoint

Labrys wrote 3 years ago:

It would be really nice to have a network (and web channel) endpoints similar to shows.

For example so you can hit http://api.tvmaze.com/networks?page=2 to page through an index of all available networks or http://api.tvmaze.com/networks/1?embed=shows to get information about a specific network (e.g. ID, country, timezone, logo, official website) and be able to embed information into it such as shows. Possibly even going so far as adding an ability to get previous and next names for a network and embedding information such as shows from those network names as well. I know the last would be a difficult thing to accommodate, but I think it would be a really nice feature.

Regarding previous names, I could be wrong but I don't think TVMaze keeps a record.

I think you're probably right about TVMaze likely not keeping a record of previous network names, but it doesn't hurt to ask. :)

I'm open to adding endpoints for Networks & Web Channels if there's sufficient demand.

I would definitely like to see this happen if you're still open to adding this?

Hello. Adding networks and web channels would be great!

This makes the database more detailed, for example, by providing a way to give some sort of credit to a show.

Please make this happen! I'm looking to filter results based on a search of what web channel (ie: hulu, netflix, amazon etc...). A way to do this with networks would be nice too.

This would be really helpful for displaying information about netflix etc +1

stumbled upon this while trying to find out if a newtwork_id list for the api was available. Sure would be nice to retrieve a show list by network

this has been requested a few times here. Is there a chance we can get this added?

Hi Ken,

It's definitely something that can be discussed internally as it has been requested a couple of times.
However I can't provide you an eta as we've already planned what we'll be working on for the next few months.

cheers,

Jan
