We'd love to talk about how we can help power your music discovery service. We offer a Starter plan for developers with small sites/apps. Our Enterprise plan is for commercial use and includes a variety of options around recency of data, Tunefind's proprietary trending data, mode of accessing the data and more. We can customize a plan based on your specific needs.

Email us at [email protected] or call us at 1-415-MUSICTV (1-415-687-4288) during San Francisco business hours.

Is there a trial?

Yes. You will get a 14 day free trial with access to a trial data set that includes 2 months of Tunefind data. See the API Documentation for details. We ask for your credit card ahead of your trial, but you won't be billed until the 14th day and may cancel at any time from your Subscription Dashboard.

Why is the API not returning a song listed on Tunefind?

If there are songs not being returned by the API, it's either because the episode air date or movie release date isn't within the time period accessible for your plan, or because the song has not yet received enough user votes on Tunefind to be syndicated out via the API. We use a karma-based verification system to help ensure that our data is accurate before syndicating via the API. Customers who need comprehensive real time data may use our Enterprise plan to get access to complete song data (including songs not otherwise syndicated), along with a confidence score.

Can I use my own affiliate links?

API customers at the Enterprise level are welcome to monetize using their own affiliate accounts. Customers on the Starter level plan must use the song links provided by the API, per the Terms of Use.

Does the API include images?

No. If you're looking for high quality images for tv shows or movies, we suggest checking out the nice folks at fanart.tv, The Movie Database and IGDB.

Why is access restricted to older data?

Two reasons: This allows us to ensure fewer data updates to our Starter customers, and more current data is more valuable. Customers who need comprehensive real time data may use our Enterprise plan to get access to complete song data (including songs not otherwise syndicated), along with a confidence score. At the Enterprise level we can create a custom plan that provides data from 1 month old to real time, depending on your needs and budget.

Why am I getting a 401 Unauthorized error?

Please make sure you are using your API username and API password and contacting the correct endpoint, which can be found on your Subscription Dashboard. These credentials are different from your Tunefind website username and password.
