a few links to be added / corrected

Hello,

An existing link to TUBI isn't opening on the correct title. Here's the title: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5282562/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_8

here's the existing link: https://tubitv.com/ It just goes to the website. The correct link is: https://tubitv.com/movies/564063/lift?start=true

Also wanted to add another link. Fandangonow.com Here's the link for the same title but on a different platform: https://www.fandangonow.com/details/movie/lift-2020/MMV63188E75C20F33052FFC94675AF633730?fbclid=IwAR1PofvAawohS7LrUR7mueTfP-iwIO03ZPOJWf-3CIUoqZmGRCmNmhdpMdU

Hi alexander_kaminer -

 

Thanks for posting these Watch Offer data suggestions, I have filed a ticket with the appropriate team to see if these changes can be made.

 

Once I have a response I will update you here with the status.

 

Cheers!

Why don't you correct the link yourself?

That's not possible for users, only staff can do these additions or corrections.

Hi, Daniel Francis Gardecki. Just for your information, the problem brought up by the creator of this thread pertains to IMDb's Watch Options system. Thus, forthehorde has taken the care to point out that corrections for the corresponding data type cannot be directly commenced by IMDb non-staff. I mean, unless of course the interface you experience when visiting IMDb title pages is different from that of most contributors. This why it is sometimes a great idea for people to share screenshots of the way IMDb looks to them, whenever providing instructions about how to complete tasks of interest.

The IMDb staff is most likely not ready to provide any more feedback on this matter just yet, otherwise Michelle would've posted a followup message at/on /conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/a-few-links-to-be-added-corrected/605ef3252b93b131e92b25b6.

thank you @jeorj_euler someone replied that I could fix it myself, but I don't think that's the case.

Right, that particular contributor made a false assumption and is mistaken in this instance. While he is very experienced in niche areas of contribution to IMDb, he is apparently new to providing advice to fellow contributors or prospective contributors.

I should further add that usually when I provide advice to other contributors, given adequate details, I try to reproduce their experience with the site, but of course that is only possible with enough information, otherwise an abstract formulaic response must be given, or worse yet, speculation or referral to the IMDb staff.

I don't know that IMDb can accommodate sourcing the specific URLs to movies available for streaming on Tubi just yet. Thus far, for Tubi, IMDb's system only detects and indicates whether or not a movie is available for streaming through Tubi, providing a hyperlink only to Tubi's root path. There may some other streaming services in the same situation concerning watch options hyperlinks found throughout IMDb.

I'm not sure about FandangoNow. It has been my suspicion that these various streaming services are responsible for providing the API to be used by IMDb.

Hi All -

 

I'm just following up here to confirm that unfortunately, some of these streaming platforms are not catalog integrated (such as Fandango) so these streaming links will only redirect to the platform homepage and cannot redirect to the catalogued streaming title on that platform.

 

There's a longstanding request to support multiple launch links, hopefully coming later this year.

 

Cheers!
