Try 30 days of free premium.

Free toilet roll with every Premium purchase while stock lasts.

Hi everyone, 

Since most of us are currently stuck home and catching up on shows. 
And because we wanted to make things more enjoyable for everyone...
We decided to activate premium functionality on all accounts for the next 30 days.

Stay safe,

Jan & David.

P.S. We couldn't get any toilet paper. Someone beat us to it at the store.

Update April 21st: The global free premium promotion has ended. Thanks for all your comments and stay safe, everyone!

I did give the weekly calender a look, but as I like my calender to start on a Monday, and I have my regional time settings for the UK, the weekly calender runs from Tuesday to Monday.  I took one look and swapped back immediately to monthly view.

So thanks for the temporary upgrade, it was nice to see what I am missing, but £30 a year to avoid ads is just too much.  (:

PS:  One feature I am loving though is the dropdown next to each episode in monthly view after if has aired.  This seemed to come along at the same time as the premium upgrade, so was wondering if this is a premium feature or something that was implemeted at the same time?

The advanced calendar is indeed a premium feature. You can read about it at https://www.tvmaze.com/blogs/31/marking-watched-episodes-in-your-calendar, and you can see all the benefits of the premium membership listed at https://www.tvmaze.com/premium.

Regarding the weekly calendar, it should run from Monday to Monday (or from Sunday to Sunday if you've enabled that preference), but note that enabling "Display airdates on the calendar and schedule in your local timezone" will convert the original airdates to your local timezone and potentially cause some confusion here. If you still suspect there's a problem here, please open a bug report in our forums and I'll take a deeper look :)

That's indeed a premium feature. there are other things that come with premium such f.e. search filters in the schedule, the week view, easier tagging...
There were other premium features in the past that after some time became free. One example would be the countdown.

Premium is also a way of supporting development and the maintenance of the site.

Glad to hear you're happy with it either way and thanks for sharing your remarks on the week calendar.

Fox will need a roll when they take their heads out of their a** for cancelling 'Deputy', just when it was ready for a juicy second season. And then to add insult to injury, they renew the spit-swapping boys of 911 Lone Star.. Back to CBS for me after that.
