        Currently, this is not possible. We don’t have the TV Time API key and they have not responded to the API key request. Ask TV Time to allow Simkl to import your data and give them the API key. Or Aks TV Time how you can export your own watch history data.

      • trak youtube channels (like youtubers)

        Youtube is like a new tv service many user use. When an user follow many channels on youtube you can easily lose what was the last video you saw from a channel, or if a video you saw it or not.

        • Merge anime seasons into one show

          It would be much better if you could merge Seasons 1 & 2 of Attack On Titan, My Hero Academia, and any other anime in need on your site into one show.

          • Link to Directors and Actors when we click on their names.

            1. Link to Directors and Actors when we click on their names. So that we can view all the shows/movies they have worked on.
            2. If possible a facility to create Lists (Eg. List of Dystopian movies I like etc.)
            3. Addition of a favorite button, for shows, actors and directors

              • Need to reload after going back a page

                REALLY wish had Amazon Prime importing history. Also, doesn’t apply to me, but Apple…whatever iTunes/AppleTV app would be a good media importer.

                +Stretch goals might be to import from those “TV apps, HBO GO/NOW, FOX, NBC, (you can see them on Chromecast, AppleTV, Roku), to import from a user’s FX profile (that’s connected to their Xfinity account to authorise it) could be cool.

                For UI changes
                If feasible, in Chrome you can have custom search engines, so, in the omnibox (where the URL is) I can type www.bbc.co.uk TAB and then type “X tv series” and return & Chrome takes…

                  1. Amazon and other sites don’t currently have history page of your watch list or APIs. If you know any, please let us know.

                  2. You can use https://simkl.com/search?q={search_term_string} for search

                  3. Could you please try disabling Adblock or try using Chrome browser and see if you still have a back button issue? If yes, What page you open then go to, when the back button breaks?

                • Use profiles from TV apps on AppleTV/Roku etc. to import/track viewing history

                  This will be a LOT of development hours...but...

                  To address "Why can’t just import my browsing history from my cable provider?"...Well, I'd wager most of the users of SIMKL are digital natives. As cord cutters, using boxes (Roku, Firestick, Chromecast, AppleTV) or just a smart TV, BUT ALSO, we still use our parents Xfinity login credentials, a tedious strategy for importing is (theoretically) possible.

                  A piecemeal method to import history from those Smart TV/Roku/Apple TV "apps" (that REQUIRE a license/login from a cable provider): FOX, CW, ABC, etc. To import viewing history from say a user’s FX profile (that’s connected…

                  • Adding a new show without English translation

                    If a TV show has not got a Title/Descriptions in English the TV show can not be added. Sometimes TV Shows that are not English spoken, have no translation on TVDB for theirs title. The TV show should be added anyways respecting it's original title and language.

                    I've seen that happen to a show that has description in Spanish and English but the title is only in Spanish and Simkl refuses to recognize the show

                        • A couple of things to look at.

                          An option to check if shows haven't been recently watched for more than 1 month to be removed from watching. Also that monthly subscription and maybe a way to show all the watching lists into one, without switching tabs.

                            Would be nice, that when i use the calender to see my tv shows/anime, that it would scroll automatically to the day of the month that is now.

                              • Android Chrome notifications not working - why not use app instead?

                                The HTML 5 notifications on android Chrome are not working. Probably something that needs to be fixed by Google but...

                                Why go through adding more points of failure? Why can't the actual SIMKL app send its own notifications without having to resort to third party apps like Chrome or IFTTT? It's too much bloat for something very simple: An app that sends its own notifications.

                                  • on the Plan to watch button a button that says, "Keen to cheek it out!"

                                    I was just browsing upcoming shows and thought That I might like to cheek it out but until I see the first episode I would not be keen to say plan to watch. It would add an extra category like Im interested but not committed.

                                      • show the name of the movie/tvshow/anime on the lenguage of the location of the user

                                        Sometimes it is hard to find a movie, tvshow or anime, because you do not know in what lenguage it's the name on Simkl.

                                        Would be great that by the "location" option on the profile settings, the web show the names the movie, tvshow or anime have on that location.

                                        IMDB, show on the info of a movie,tvshow or anime, the different names it have for some locations. Maybe Simkl could take the names and locations by there.

                                        • Watching list to have only shows with unwatched episodes

                                          The watching list is filled with a lot of shows that I've complete to date, but they are still airing. I would it so that I don't see those shows in my list when deciding what to watch. This could either be by putting them on a different list or having any of the filter options group all of those together.
