    How do websites like watchseries.eu, letmewatchthis etc...

    Automatically index all those links to tv shows that just aired? Is some sort of web crawler used or something? How does the website then automatically post the links on a constant basis? Where could I find information on this? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Web Bot that pulls an RSS feed that can be parsed for its content.

    Thank you! It's so difficult to find this sort of information if you don't already know what to look for.

    If I wanted to learn about how this sort of thing is done, and how it is applied to sites similar to the ones mentioned, what would be the required knowledge? In other words, what should I learn if I want to do this? The more detail the better. Thanks again.

    I believe you would "CURL" the RSS url and obtain the data stream and "slurp the data" to your server.

    You would use a server-side language like PHP to do the leg work, if you search you will find many ready made examples littering the web and on this site too.
