Can you in addition to selecting your timezone actually set what country you watch in and then pull the appropriate air dates of episodes in from tv rage/thetvdb.
E.g. I live in the UK so 2 broke girls is 8 episodes behind but i'd like to be able to track it consistently with the UK so i'm not seeing episodes that need watching that haven't even aired yet (at least not locally).
An option to toggle this on or off for different shows (as some won't have relevant air dates - because tvrage/thetvdb hash't been updated or because it doesn't air locally would be ideal.)
Looked everywhere for this feature and as you've already incorporated it to some degree it looks more than feasible and would make your website hit a gap in the market.
Specific regional air date is not important to me, but being able to mark as watched before the US air date is.
Is this still the case? I want to use trakt to keep track of what I’m watching on the tv here in the UK. It’s of no use to me that Hulu is screening The Handmaid’s Tale for example several weeks ahead of C4 in the UK.
Makes trakt pretty pointless for me if it can’t do that.
I use an app that I believe uses your database as it’s source for tv shows and their air dates. (I looked into this a while back and then forgot about it, but revisiting it now and I’m hoping I remember that correctly). One of the shows I watch is Poldark, which is listed as Poldark (BBC). I live in the US, though, and here it airs a different time of year on PBS. There are a number of other shows with this exact scenario that I’ve watched in the past. I would love it if there were 2 listings for shows like that. In this case, one that said Poldark (BBC) and one Poldark (PBS), for example.
Any movement on this?
Had a look online today to see what was out there which may help with this, and found code which does similar for certain countries:
For the UK, it uses 'Atlas' and it's API, so wonder if this is something which could be integrated for the UK side of things. I think you just need to get a series ID, then just get the next air date for the episode being viewed. Wonder if there is a request limit though, as may need to be kept tidy if we want to see ALL next on episodes in a type of guide.
This is also something I really want. Am trying to cut the cord, which partially means no tv recorder, so would use trakt or similar to see what episodes are available for me on UK tv

I'd similarly like to see international air dates. I live in the US and watch a few BBC shows on BBC America and on PBS, and I watch at least one show that hails from Canada. You currently show the country and network of origin with the original airtime from there, which you get from TVRage. TVRage also has the international premiers with their networks. It would be really nice Not to have to jump between sites to find this information. It would be even nicer to have the primary air date default to my country's details when I'm signed in or just when I'm coming from an iP address in my country.
