How can we improve Trakt.tv?

International Watch Now links

I find that when I click on the where to watch button and it says a show is available on Netflix, it actually isn't always because it seems to only be based off the American catalogue. So I was just wondering if it would be possible to make the where to watch location specific so if it says a program/film is available on a platform, it actually is

        The "Watch Now" buttons seem to be for US visitors. Could you please localise depending on where we are from. I would rather see sites that work here in the UK, and prices in £. Same for other countries.

        I love trakt, I even just signed up for VIP. But it is so heavily US centric it renders it useless at times, for me.

        For example, I'd like to know if I can watch Hidden Figures https://i.imgur.com/uYjWLsb.png ...but they're all US services which aren't relevant to me.

        JustWatch have perfectly handled this issue by allowing me to select specific country so I can quickly see services relevant to me https://i.imgur.com/yQE6Z80.jpg

        So, for now I'm having to use Justwatch and manually manage two sets of lists which is a bit of pain.

        Cheers,
        Chris

        As a low hanging fruit or first step you could support the US providers, like Amazon Video or Netflix, and offer a country option for them. Do the APIs allow such an approach?
