  1. Add the country: Argentina for date releases, Tv air dates and see catalogs of services like netflix

    See when a movie/tvshow/anime will release for Argentina

    See when a movie/tvshow/anime will be on tv for Argentina (Cablevision)

    See if a movie/tvshow/anime is on Netflix (and others) of Argentina

    • Show the duration of the episodes of a series or anime

      On the info of a tvshow/anime it show you how much it takes to see all the episodes of the tvshow/anime (for example: 5 hours)

      Would be good if it show too, the duration of the episodes (for example, all the episodes last 25minutes usually)

      and would be good too have the duration of the episode on the episode list

      And if it is a tvshow that have different duration for episodes, show an aproximation.

        • Better lists and overviews.

          In the 'currently watching', you should have a divider. Over the line should the 'my list' that is displayed on your profile, and underneath it, all 'currently watching' that you are up to date on.
          ----------------
          Also, Adding a 'on hold' status. You sometimes want to take a break - and not have it in 'currently', but not in the 'dropped either'.
          ---------------
          Also, would be nice with custom lists. Not as a status, but where you can gather things like 'movies I recommend for dates' etc.

          • Send alerts when a tv show or movie is available on one of your streaming services like Reelgood.

            A feature I've been wanting for a while is to get an alert when a movie or tv show is available on one of the streaming services I subscribe to. Reelgood does a great job at this, providing email, text, & push notifications. I would also love to be able to filter searches by what is available on my services and filtering out shows I've already seen. If Simkl had these features, it would completely replace Reelgood and Rotten Tomatoes for me.

            What I am looking for in the perfect movie/tv tracking service in order of priority is:
            1. search…

            • Begin tracking on VRV

              Crunchyroll is expanding to VRV, but shows watching on VRV don't track in CR. Expand tracking to include VRV and it's varied services.

                • 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

                  • Telegram Bot

                    A Telegram bot would be nice. They offer a free API (https://core.telegram.org/bots). It could work like this: In a chat with the simkl bot, you send a command like /watched Star Trek DS9 E1S2 and it would add it to the watched list.

                    • 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.

                      • Calender

                        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.

Also TiVo linking might help those willing to pay for the guide! Something I get free with media center! I am beta testing a device soon to hit the market (sorry I can't revel what it is due to a NDA) this device deep links with my DVR and Roku apps to track usage…
