IMDB issues (Jan 2017)?

Just curious if there's something new going on with IMDB lookups - my recordings are all getting items like this in the log:
WARNING> --> Unable to connect to IMDB
Error -> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.
   at System.Net.WebClient.DownloadDataInternal(Uri address, WebRequest& request)
   at System.Net.WebClient.DownloadString(Uri address)

WARNING> 2017-01-16T23:18:51 MCEBuddy.MetaData.VideoMetaData --> IMDB failed
A more detailed log though it doesn't seem to have anything additional relevant to this issue (I turned back the logging a bit yesterday):

Did IMDB change their API recently?

I have the same issue... i recently upgraded from 2.3.13 to the new 2.4.6 and my naming convention doesn't work and showing errors for IMDB also...

I have always had issues on some shows, maybe to obscure, but other shows are still working just fine.

Yes the website API is rejecting requests. We're looking for alternatives.
