Playing an item from Watchlist

I have the IMDb app on my iPhone6 and a movie I want to watch on my watchlist. I can get to my watchlist but cannot figure out how to start the movie. Is there a secret "play" icon or should I be on a different page to actually watch the movie. Thanks.

Unfortunately IMDb calls the list you referenced a "Watchlist"

While it is indeed called that, it is a poor name for that list.

It implies that if you place something on your watchlist, that you can "Watch" it!

This is not the case.

Not all titles on IMDb are available for viewing.

If a title has no watch icon then it is not available at this time.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

:(:(

:):)

Hope you understand.

Hi @abethel 

Adding a title to your Watchlist on IMDb, does not guarantee that the title is available to stream via IMDb TV.

Only certain titles in our database may be available to stream for free with ads via IMDb TV. Visit the IMDb TV FAQs for more information

@Taylor Thanks so much for your reply. Now I can stop looking for the "play" icon! I was looking for a Spanish language program called Destinos, a tv program to learn Spanish. Is there any way to find out when the program might be able to be viewed in the future? As you can see, I am new to IMDb and I appreciate your help.

We don't have any details to share in regards to future availability. Please note, on IMDb, we list every movie and show we are aware of that meet our criteria for inclusion, whether or not they are available on video or ever have been. In some cases, there are no known copies available in digital or physical form.
