The latest version of Otomatic includes the ability to add any show to the listing. This allows you to set up subscriptions for shows that are not included in Otomatic and still get all the benefits of episode matching and tracking. In this way, adding shows allows the same functionality as Custom subscriptions with show data from Automatic 2, but in a more straightforward and integrated way.
To add a show, simply open the listing (Window menu > TV Shows) and click the add button in the bottom left. Enter a search query and hit return. Select the correct show from the search results and it will be added into the listing, from where it can be subscribed to.
A few things to note: added shows are listed under the “My Additions” grouping in the listing, and can be deleted by hovering over them. When subscribed to, the “Managed by Otomatic” source is disabled, so you need to add at least one source. If the show is later added to Otomatic’s default list, the sources will automatically update.
