Will TVDB's new subscription base changes with api v4 break MCM?

I can explain. Sorry for the confusion. If Plex decides to go with the licensed approach instead of the user subscription approach, everything else is irrelevant. It would function exactly the same as it does now, except they would be working off of our new API which gives increased functionality and speed.

If they do the user subscription approach, then access to the API for each user would require a subscription. A subscription gives you a PIN that you would have to put into Plex.

Plex could also decide to do a hybrid approach, where Plex Pass users get free access but everyone else requires a subscription.

There are no quotas or request limits with either approach, except that we detect if people are sharing their unique PIN.


Will we get a TMDB TV fetcher and possibly a TVDB fetcher that users will enter their own key?

So no free TVDB calls? Everything is a SaS these days.

API key, if I had one, can continue to be used until early 2021, but only with the legacy APIs.
