503 Service Unavailable probably means that the server is temporarily not available or overloaded. If they have technical issues, or getting DDoSed, then 3 hours is not a lot of time to fix it. Let's try again tomorrow and see if it works again then.

How do I get amc script in qbittorrent to use a different database while TVDB is off the air?

Just to let you know that it hasn't started to work again for me yet.

By the way, this is my first post. Filebot is great, congratulations on your work.

Glad they are back. It did prompt me to donate to TheTVDb, I'd hate to lose them!
