SiCKRAGE will continue using TheTVDB as its main series provider

As I’m sure many of you heard that TheTVDB went to a “paid” model, many have been scrambling to make the switch to other series providers that remain using a “free” model, we to were on the fence but decided that we would stick it out with TheTVDB and cover the costs to allow our members to continue enjoying the content they so love from TheTVDB!

Currently, SiCKRAGE uses TheTVDB API v3, the new API v4 is a whole new beast and requires a complete refactor of the code inside the SiCKRGAE server app, because of this, I’ve decided to move the majority of the API functionality out of the server app and into our private external API, this will allow for seamless updates to the API code when needed and minimize app updates required for code changes, on top of that, we will be able to cache the content and serve it in the case event that TheTVDB API servers go offline as we have seen in the past.

We still employ you to donate to TheTVDB as its a lot of time and effort that goes into maintaining such a massive collection, not to mention operating costs behind it, for we would rather stay by them than move onto something else that may very well go “paid” one day also.

So be on the lookout for the next release!
