I split this off from the original thread as it's less of a technical
question and more about wish list.

First off, thanks for the developers for quickly getting this change ready
for March and to the users who have found workarounds for older versions.

Just curious though if there's any consideration of allowing Mythtv users
to use the paid API in the future, much in the way that we can use
Schedules Direct or EIT. I record a lot of retro programming like Johnny
Carson's Tonight Show and neither themoviedb nor tvmaze have the depth of
info that thetvdb does. For example, tvmaze only has show info for about 10
years and themoviedb has the episodes going back to the beginning, but each
episode is just a blank template asking for guest information.

It's an 11.99 API fee. I wouldn't mind if there was an option to use it.
