Helping people discover streamable content could make your app or website more engaging and successful. But how do you do it without breaking the bank? Search sites like Flixlist have done the heavy lifting of getting Netflix’s on-demand content metadata. Maybe they could help? After all, having a Flixlist API would let you focus on your project.
But things are never that easy. We’ll explain what Flixlist offers people, why having a streaming-aware API is important for developers and show you a better way to enhance your app.
Is there a Flixlist API?
Websites like Flixlist offer a better way to discover content in the 15,000-title Netflix catalog. The streaming service’s own algorithm doesn’t always get things right — and definitely doesn’t know what you’re in the mood for right now. Flixlist adds Rotten Tomatoes ratings so you can see more than a thumbs-up, thumbs-down indicator of content popularity. But the Flixlist search engine really focuses on movies so discovering TV shows is not as easy.
Still, having access to a Flixlist API would make it easier to add content availability notifications and other streaming-aware features to your development project. But how would you help users find content on Amazon Prime Video?
Developers’ need to add content discovery capabilities is why we created the Flixed APIs for on-demand content.

Use the Flixed API to enhance your app development
There are plenty of Netflix-only search sites like Flixboss. Their dedicated teams scour the streaming service’s content catalog every day to ensure the search engine serves up all available content.
But few developers can take that approach just to add a feature enhancement to their website. The Netflix catalog has a constantly-churning catalog of more than 15,000 films and TV shows with libraries tailored for every country. The same is true for Disney+ and other on-demand streaming services. Permanently reassigning developers and resources from your core project to manage a metadata content library is not an option.
This is where the Flixed API comes to your aid. In the course of our mission to make life easier for cord-cutters, we have created all sorts of content and data services. Our Flixed Live TV Streaming Guides, for example, helps people find the right live TV streaming service for the shows they watch. We also created our own content metadata catalog pulled from a dozen popular on-demand streaming services.
Rather than keep this catalog to ourselves, we make the Flixed API available to developers anywhere through our easy, performant RESTful API. With a few lines of code, you can access the metadata you need to offer content recommendations, cross-service search results and other streaming-aware features. We do the heavy lifting by keeping our catalog up-to-date so your users get accurate results fast.
