  1. Sort by streaming availability

    Allow "include" view option based on streaming availability. Only videos available to stream (on the sites we have access to) are displayed.

    If we could include/exclude videos based on availability, SIMKL would be the go-to source when trying to decide what to watch.

    My list doesn't help much if it's littered with things I want to see, but can't watch.

    • Add a "Related"-tab

      Add a "Related"-tab.
      When viewing the page for a movie/tv show/anime, there are info tabs available, for instance, if I visit the page for Fate/Zero, I can see 6 tabs: Summary, Episodes, Shop, Activity, Screenshots & Cast. However, there is 1 essential tab missing, namely a tab called "Relations", this tab should contain a list for the other anime's in the Fate Series. The ideal view mode for this tab, should be like the content shown for "People who liked Fate/Zero also Liked..."

      • Series ended on Post Page

        I would like see series ended across the front of the poster on the profile page. Similar to how you have the episode numbers listed.

                  • Netflix and Amazon Network Categories

                    You do not have a category for Netflix or Amazon under networks. Doing this would allow us to see shows provided by those media content creators as they do act as 'networks' in that sense.

                    • Hide shows in "My List" once all episodes watched much like tvmaze.com

                      I'm overloaded by the amount of shows I watch, it's a little embarrassing. Anyway, I'm on a mission I guess. Once thing that strikes me as odd, when I complete all current episodes of a show, it still shows in My List. I would much rather see the shows that I am watching, but not currently completed than to see all shows I'm watching, completed to date or not. tvmaze.com, site I used before, would make any show with completed episodes drop off the list until a new episode came out. Best attribute of their site.

                      • Create "Best of Lists" from Credible Sources

                        Allow users to set up "watch lists" according to published "best of" lists--for example from AFI, the Oscars, and other organizational lists. The same could be done for best TV shows of all time or best lists by genre.

                          I'll be closer review to this application from both a beginner stand point and an advanced tech standpoint I would recommend adding things such as a perspective how to when you first start using this application, because I can see this being the next biggest thing for everyone to use, in my opinion it would benefit adding quick how to points to allow users to set up links to prevent which questions such as how do I or why can I not watch my favorite show from here and so on. The idea of a go to app that lets…

                          • Groups

                            If you are familiar with "Steam", you'll know about groups. Users can create their own groups, public or private/invite only, for all kind of interests.

                            Why I'd consider this useful is to invite already existing communities to simkl. On all kinds of forums you'll find people talking about which movies and shows they recommend - why not make it easier for them?

                            With groups they'd have to chance to connect with familiar names immediately. And you could offer tons of statistics based on the group's interests.
                            What have they seen most? What did they see in the last week? What…

                                  I wanted to ask if it would be possible to put the site in several languages, there is this site www.localeapp.com that helps, so the users helped translate SIMKL for several languages. This is how TMDb did it. And they would gain many more users because not everybody knows how to read in English.

                                      Today i first saw your awesome site, through out the day some improvement ideas have come to my mind. I wish there were more streams like Vivo or Opencloud, similar to BS.
