Introducing TVDB


Combining my love of TV Shows and being a nerd I've created a PHP script that will download high quality poster and fanart images from the superb and store them locally for you to use or integrate with your website or application.

For an online demo click here and try adding some of your favorite TV shows.


  • Database driven
  • Easy to setup and configure
  • Uses the API to get:
    • Seperate OO PHP class to connect to the API
    • Show information
    • Show banner image
    • High quality poster images
    • High quality fanart images
  • Cache searches for improved performance
  • Progressive Javascript enhancements
  • Included Image resizer class
    • Resize and save images
    • Resize and cache large images on the fly
  • Knowledge of PHP would be beneficial

As the script uses website you will need to get an API key by signing up and requesting one, a pretty straight forward process hopefully


The script is available to download here and if you would like any modifications or custom stuff doing just let me know via email or leave a comment.
