I really like this software my only negative feedback is the price. Make it cheaper and I'm sold.

Otomatic (sic) is the successor to Automatic. Upgrades from Automatic are available. http://codingcurious.com/otomatic/

I've used Automatic since 1.x and it's always worked well. I now use 2.x and it is even better. However I only use custom subscriptions with regex. I find that it is a nice clean app that does what it is supposed to. I also tried TVShows a few times but always ended up uninstalling it. As it wasn't as powerful (regex) or as nice to use as Automatic. I've had a couple of issues but it had some thing to do with some other file getting messed up which is extremely common with OSX software at the moment even with major league software. But luckily the support is amazing which prompted me to buy this software in the first place.

After purchasing and using for less than a year, the program no longer works. I installed on a Mac Mini and did not update software or do anything different from when I bought the program. Email sent to support has gone unanswered. I cannot recommend buying this program. There is an awesome free alternative named "TVShows" that has filled the $20 void that this program's developers left.

Activity, and the loading on the tvshow page crash everytime i open them. For a 20$ app this isn't cool at all. Even if this app is kinda great and save some time. I'm not ready to pay for it.

Sad to hear people say v2.x doesn't work well. I'm still using v1.x (available free on their website) and it's still rock solid and a wonderful tool. Not quite as easy as the newer version looks to use, but a large part of may automated TV Show workflow (Automatic -> Transmission -> Magic Media Marker -> iTunes/Apple TV).

As great. Not now. Always have to stop it, and 99% of the TV shows in the list have disappeared. Look for something else, as this doesn't look like it will be updated.

Good when it works, but for over a month it fails with about 90% of the shows. This has something to do with the RSS source, but the developer is very unresponsive. The support forum is FILLED with complaints "doesn't work", "stopped working", etc and the developer is making vague promises of an update "hopefully" in May. Great when it works, but the support is unimpressive. I can't recommend it over free alternatives unless there is some support.

I'm not to sure why this is not showing up here but there is a new version 2. It's not free anymore but has lots of new features. You should check it out!

Ironic that MacUpdate's RSS feed link gets rejected by this. I wonder if there's a workaround for this?

I currently have automator doing this very same thing and it is already on your mac. I will try this though as automator has a few quirks that this software may solve and it looks a little easier to set up.

I've been using earlier versions of Automatic (initially offered at the Transmission forums) for a couple of months and have been very happy with it. Recommended!
