Thanks so much for this TVShowsApp! It's really one of the best apps if all time!

I juat have a question, is there a way to choose between AVIs and MP4s when downloading? Or is there a customization/preference for the download format?

    Hi Carla,

    TVShows lets you choose between SD and HD episodes. SD used to be .avi files, but a few months ago the scene switched to .mp4. While we are currently in a transition period and some shows are still released in .avi, in the future all of them will be .mp4.

    TVShows downloads episodes from trusted users from The Pirate Bay, usually the most popular ones: EZTV, VTV, TVTeam... they mostly upload in .mp4 but some shows are still .avi, TVShows doesn't detect the file format.

    If you want .avi files you will need to find a user that only uploads .avi files and add the shows as custom feeds following the instructions from our knowledge base.
