Where does the data come from?
Next Episode uses the officially provided APIs of thetvdb.com and tvmaze.com to fetch information about TV shows and themoviedb.com for the movies.

Each request for a new show is manually verified and some of the data is hand picked as well (like shows images, youtube trailers, show creators, some show descriptions and alternate names etc).

Show ratings and suggestions ("you may also like") are generated by our users and all discovery charts are based on our own usage and algoritms.
How do I add a missing show?
We have a page for that. Simply request the show to be added here.
How do I track which episodes I've watched?
Easy (well, that's the main point of this service, right?) - you just open the Episodes page (from the main menu of the site) and click the little [-] icon infront of every episode you want to mark watched. Then - those disappear and you're only left with a list of not yet watched episodes.
What do I do if I have more questions, thoughts or suggestions?
You're most welcome to post in our forums, the facebook page or simply get in touch through our contact form or email.
