What is a TVDB file?

A TVDB file is a database file used by Apple TV. It is stored within TV Library, which is the file that contains your Apple TV library. TVDB files contain information about either your Apple TV settings or your Apple TV library.

More Information

You are most likely to encounter a TVDB file after right-clicking TV Library and selecting Show Package Contents. Each TV Library file contains the following three TVDB files:

  • Application.tvbd: Stores Apple TV preferences and settings
  • Library Preferences.tvdb: Stores library preferences and settings
  • Library.tvdb: Stores information about each video in your Apple TV library

By default, TV Library is stored at Macintosh HD/​Users/​YourUserName/​Movies/​TV on Macs.

How to open a TVDB file

TVDB files are not meant to be opened or edited. Editing a TVDB file may affect Apple TV's ability to load and show your library.
