  • Issues with European Countries

    published 10 months ago

    UPDATE: This should now be fixed!

    Currently all european countries have inaccurate information!

    We believe this is due to the new rules introduced in the EU which allow your netflix catalog to follow you around europe.

    In this case the account I am currently using is a UK account.

    We are currently looking into a fix... Many thanks to user MAFT for the theory and possible fix.

    The following countries information is not currently accurate

    | id  | country         | cc   |
    |  39 | Germany         | DE   |
    |  45 | France          | FR   |
    |  67 | Netherlands     | NL   |
    |  73 | Sweden          | SE   |
    | 270 | Spain           | ES   |
    | 307 | Czech Republic  | CZ   |
    | 357 | Lithuania       | LT   |
    | 392 | Poland          | PL   |
    | 412 | Slovakia        | SK   |

  • Netflix Just changed something major and it doesn't look good for uNoGS

    published a year ago

    All, An api user tipped me off to some invalid data this morning and after investigation it would seem that Netflix have made another major change to their API. We are looking in to our options but to be perfectly transparent, it doesn't look very good.

    We will let you know more as we do further investigation.

  • Issues with updates: I think I may have poked the bear too much

    published 2 years ago

    We will know more over the next 24 hours. Until then unfortunately there will be no more updates.

    We will provide more information tomorrow once we know the extent of the issues.

    Thank you for your patience.

  • Issues with updates: our current situation

    published 2 years ago

    All, After some changes made by NF over the last week they have greatly reduced the amount of information I can pull from them at any given time. To this end I have had to prioritize the countries which will be updated every 24 hours. The following countries:


    Will be updated every 24 hours all other countries will take around 48 hours to complete.

    If there are any other countries that you feel need to be prioritized please send an email to and I will see what I can do.

    Kind Regards -admin

  • Issues with updates over the last 2 days

    published 2 years ago

    All, our friends at Netflix have decided to make some changes on their end which have caused a few issues on our side.

    We are working on solutions and you should see updates trickling in over the next 24 hours.

    As this service is unofficial, we endeavor to keep up with Netflix and will let you know as things progress.

    If any of you are looking at specific countries please let me know via email and we will try to throw them to the front of the queue.

    Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.


  • Changes coming to the API!

    published 2 years ago

    All, I have been doing some much needed work on the API and one of the biggest request I have had is to use associative arrays.
    To this end we will be rebuilding all the endpoints to use them.
    To use the associative arrays you will need to use aaapi.cgi instead of api.cgi e.g.{query}


    please let us know if you see any issues.

    Once we have a go live date I will add another announcement.

    Kind Regards, Brian

He accidentally discovers that the Chinese Mafia, the Tong, is using his newly discovered ancient Chinese artifacts to hide and smuggle narcotics across the border. Robert immediately tries to flee with his assistant and narrowly manages to escape the pursuing Tong but not without a heavy price. His loyal assistant is killed and he is framed with the evidence at the Chinese border by the Chinese military and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. He is locked up in a Chinese prison where he is guilty until proven innocent. His loving wife Maya vows to help get him out of jail. The DEA finally convinces the Chinese military that Robert may be of more help to them outside jail by leading them to the real smugglers. Once he leaves his Chinese prison cell Robert would rather enjoy his freedom back in the U.S. and keep his past behind him, but The Tong catches up to him and threatens not only his life but that of his wife. They threatened the wrong man. Secrets of Robert's past start to emerge as he unleashes his awesome martial arts fighting abilities to defend himself and his wife. Now that The Tong and their drug cartel know who he is they will stop at nothing to kill Robert to protect their own corrupt interests. To avenge the lives of loved ones he has lost, Robert must hunt down, pursue and find each of the Tong members. In a classic homage to Chinese martial arts films, he is involved in intense hand to hand combat including sword fighting, guns, car chases, and other ingenious forms of fighting to mame and kill these Tong members. He deciphers their ancient coded Tong tattoos which leads him to their don, Wong Dai- The Emperor; the man who controls an empire of crime and corruption across many borders. As an added twist Robert discovers upon meeting Wong Dai, that the evil man himself has been manipulating our protagonist in order to have him kill Wong Dai's own Tong members and thus, secure the ill gotten gains of Wong Dai's empire of crime for himself.",

    The tech news cycle has picked up uNoGS and we are getting an unusual amount of traffic at the moment.

  • Collapsed What's New into Advanced Search

    published 3 years ago

    All, As they were exactly the same calls only the query was adapted for What's New I have now consolidated the What's New call into the Advanced Search call.
    Please just use get:new[days back] e.g. get:new7 (to view 7 days back) as your query string for what's new globally. Keep in mind... This does not change the 'What's New' per country call, this only affects the advanced filters for whats new globally!

  • Added Higher Resolution horizontal images to results JSON

    published 3 years ago

    All, I have finished some work scanning Netflix for higher resolution horizontal images and have added these (where applicable) to the end of the ITEMS array in the results JSON. e.g. [ "70184148", "The Good Doctor", "", "After a young doctor falls into an illicit romance with his teenage patient, a colleague learns of the forbidden relationship and blackmails him.<br><b>Expires on 2016-01-17 </b>", "70184148", "2.923392", "movie", "2011", "1h33m", "" ],

    where is the higher resolution image.

    As Netflix is very hit and miss with these expect them to be a variety of different resolutions.
