Trakt has a lot of pages dedicated to discovering new things to watch. The trending pages display what people are watching right now. The popular, played, watched, and collected pages help see what the top TV shows and movies are in the community. The calendars help keep track of your own shows plus new ones coming soon. Search for anything else you’re looking for.


These pages are all great for discovery, but sometimes you want to dive deeper to really find what you’re looking for. That’s where advanced filtering comes in! All VIP members have access to advanced filtering.
