  1. Importing from Tv time

    Please add the option to import from Tv time, because this site it's free and super easy to use.

      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.

    • 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…

          • 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.

            • Erroneous second season of "Planet Earth" (not on TVDB)

              I tried to fix this myself on TVDB, only to find that TVDB was correct and Simkl was out of sync with it. Not sure if this is a deeper problem or not (I don't know how often data is refreshed).

              I know this was added here before but being able to report errors natively in Simkl would be much more user friendly than having to post here (think of trying to attract the average web user).

                  • Turkish TV Shows

                    It would not be bad also add Turkish series. The community of the Turkish series is huge and such a page as Simkl with Turkish TV Shows would be unique.

                      It would be nice if we can add a screenshot or an image to an episode that it doesn't have it. Like it happens with this show

                        Right now you can add screenshots directly into thetvdb.com for that episode and it will appear on Simkl as well. This will help the whole TV community.

                        I found this show on tvdb(http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=270414&lid=7) but not on simkl.You said to contact you.

                          Спасибо, добавили в поиск, доступен тут: https://simkl.com/tv/531710/sashatanya но пока что На tvdb нету названий эпизодов http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid=270414&seasonid=521732&lid=7 поэтому не импортируется в Simkl серии. Пока что необходимо чтобы были названия серий (вы можете добавить сами на tvdb) чтобы можно было отметить серии в этом сериале. Мы попробуем добавить в будущем возможность импортировать без названий серий, добавили в todo.

                            It would be nice if lights in your house would change with every episode you watch, or movie, when you finish or start a new show.
