If you have backed up your DVD-Sets to your computer, Episodes automatically assigns these files to an show and allows you to launch your favorite video player.

Episodes was designed for flexibility: It doesn't matter if your files are on your hard-disk, a network drive or an usb-drive.

Note: The Lite version is almost the same as the paid version, but has some limitations. You can unlock the full version from inside the app.

Please note: Episodes is not a video-player, you will need a installed player on your system (for example VLC, which is free). It also will not download any TV-shows.

Customer Reviews

Great app, have been looking for a long time for an app to track all my shows w/ a simple GUI. 5/5!

This app is great. It links all my files on my HDD and external drives to the metadata from tvdb and leaves me with a simple graphical view of my shows, a big upgrade from using Finder before. It’s simple enough that it automatically matches your files but unlike the huge apps with all the bells and whistles like xmbc, this requires little effort and all the info I want from an app like this. It basically just put a GUI to all my shows instead of using Finder. It moves shows with new episodes to the top, which is a huge plus, shows upcoming and most recent episodes, and is able to open VLC so I can view my shows. If you already have the episodes, or just want a TV guide app, this is highly recommended. I just upgraded to the full version (if you upgrade in-app then you will have a fully activated version of EpisodesLite, so I would suggest going to the Mac Store and upgrading by purchasing although both options will give you a full version).

Simple to use, and customer support is very helpful. Developer seems to be actively updating/improving as well.
