The API for Peak TV’s Musical Side: Tunefind Revs up its Offerings for Developers

Just ask one of its millions of monthly users: Tunefind has great data. Fans’ love of TV and film music, their need to know what track played in their favorite scene has made Tunefind the go-to site for music discovery.

Now developers and third-party sites can reap the benefits thanks to Tunefind’s revved-up API. The site has created four API tiers with different development needs and stages in mind, from the very earliest versions of the next killer entertainment app, to the dedicated music, TV, or film enterprise needing accurate, robust, and real-time data.

Full plans and terms of service here.

“Tunefind started out as a labor of love, built by fans, for fans. Over the years we’ve seen growing interest in our data from enterprises,” says Amanda Byers of Tunefind. “As TV and film has become a powerful new force in music discovery, there are a variety of compelling use-cases across data, entertainment, and tech industries. From playlisting, second-screen fan engagement, artist promotion, cross-promotion and retargeting of related content, rich metadata, and more.”

Tunefind launched its first developer-friendly API in 2010 that currently powers a number of entertainment-focused apps and sites. Tunefind’s data is used by The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group to compile their monthly Top TV Songs Chart. Other apps and sites featuring Tunefind data include: TVFeed, CheckTrakt, Betaseries, Movienade, You Can Have It, MovieSom, Netzwelt, TV Shows Manager, and Trackfind. The new and improved API product directly addresses the growing demand the company has received for a more full-featured enterprise product.

The new API levels are designed with different applications in mind. The Starter level is perfect for someone just experimenting with app development. Customers who want branding control or to monetize with their own affiliate accounts can do so at the higher API levels. Customers can also add context with pithy scene descriptions, as well as 3rd-party song IDs with links to outside platforms such as iTunes. Enterprise level users gain access to real-time data - often with complete song data before a show airs - as well as real-time trending data, providing valuable insights into artists and songs that are spiking in popularity with audiences.

“With interest in peak TV and original content growing, millions of viewers find themselves hungry for details about the songs and artists they’re hearing when they watch,” explains Byers. “At the same time, music discovery is changing dramatically, with the rise of streaming and playlists. Tunefind’s data has become a powerful tool for driving deeper engagement within apps and platforms.”
