Universal Streaming TV Watch List?
September 27, 2016 11:31 AM   Subscribe

So now that CW has cut ties with Hulu in favor of Netflix (full seasons will be available 8 days after the season finale), I have three places to keep track of current TV: Hulu for NBC, Fox and ABC; CWtv.com for CW; and cbs.com for CBS shows. Halp!

I watch 90% of current TV on a computer rather than a TV, and I have Fire TV which I use when I'm watching at home in my living room, but that's not where I usually watch TV. There is a <1% chance of me watching these shows live as they air, and I don't have or want cable/DVR.

What I do want is a place that will keep track of when new episodes become available to stream so I can check one place instead of three. I'm happy to go to various sites to actually stream the shows, I just want to know when the new episodes have aired and are available online. Does such a thing exist?

Trakt.tv might work.

I like SideReel on web and iOS a lot.

My husband and I hate the one we use, iTV Shows, but have just had a friend endorse Couchy, but it's iOS only if that bothers you.

I've only used JustWatch a little, but it seems to do what you want.

Oops: It has The CW, but not cbs.com

I use TV Calendar to track airdates, but it has no info on streaming dates. But aren't most shows available on each network on-demand service almost immediately, and expire in a week or two?

Fan TV might work for this. I use it more for movies and for where a tv series in general might be available for streaming, but it should have episode info too.

If you're an Androider—and Amazon Fire might count—you might like TV Show Favs. The search is a little wonky in the current version, but I've been using it for years and am otherwise very happy with it.
