Watch.io API

Note: The Watch.io API is no longer available.
This profile is retained for historical purposes only.

Watch.io is software that indexes all on-line movies and TV shows. The software provides an interface to an almost real time index of the top TV shows on the internet, from both free sources and paid sources where a free source is not available.

The watch.io JavaScript widget allows site owners to display the top 4 most recent episodes from almost any TV show on the web. Watch.io gathers information from numerous sites so site owners don't have to.

This widget has been expanded into an API designed for developers. Now you can submit requests to the query.php page and get a list of episodes back in JSON format. You can now also get the widget as a Mediawiki extension.

For details, refer to the API section at the bottom of http://watch.io/watchwidget.php
