Now TVDB has changed their URL scheme, what's a practical way to get a TVDB id?

(Thought about posting this in Help & Support but decided this is not a matter in Sonarr’s control)

Sonarr has the tvdb: prefix while adding shows. Helpful, useful, precise.

Better still, a quick Google for the show name would likely show the url, which was something like (I can’t remember what it was exactly), and the ID was right there for copy & pasting. Everyone was happy (I presume, I never asked).

Now TVDB have changed their naming to the much more human readable but ID-lacking format:

With this in mind, what’s a practical, fast/low effort way to get a TVDB ID these days?

It’s now right on the page.
