Maybe it's about time IMDb should create links/shortcuts to torrents. Most people are downloading anyway.

For torrent material in the public domain or otherwise authorized/distributed by the copyright holders/licensees, we should just go ahead and post the URLs in the appropriate sections. In theory, there will be no risk of harming or offending anybody at all.

Hope this helps. I just read on another thread asking the same things. A very rude poster called someone stupid but then provided some pretty great info.

IMDB is not a host of streaming like tubi, you tube, etc. They are just a data base set up to show you where and how you can see whatever movie/show. 

Why set up a Watchlist???????

I, like all of you, was thrilled to find some of my "not findable" shows. Then feverishly clicked on everything clickable just to get angry when nothing works. Since none of this sites staff can post anything clearly it is up to us to help each other.

I would surely support telling the "big house" people to get the hell off my Internet and my Firestick. I've got enough stress in my life.

Basically IMDB is not only ignoring, but also throwing the people that have actually build the site under the bus. I guess there is not much you can do when a company sells their soul to the devil.

I don't follow you, M J. What is IMDb ignoring?
This thread is dedicated to people asking how to watch titles they put in their Watchlist, with the result usually being that the title is not streaming on IMDb. I think the name "Watchlist", which predates IMDbTV, makes people think that because the Watchlist button is on the title, the title is available to stream, which is true on streaming sites. But IMDb is primarily a Db, namely a database, now with a few titles available to stream.

No, I'm not an IMDb staffer. Just another user with an extra badge.
Actually, I posted something else on this thread (but not near the top):

I'm trying to watch SPENSER FOR HIRE.  When I click the "Watch Free on IMDbTV" tab, it changes to "Add to Watchlist." I add to my Watchlist, go to my Watchlist, and still can't watch it. What am I doing wrong?

Evan Lewis,
I just tried it, and had no problem on my Windows 10 laptop. What device/OS did you use? Any particular episode?
From the series title page 
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088612/
it takes me to the episode list, and under each episode (except the pilot), it has a link to IMDbTv (it does take a second to appear). And clicking the link for S1E1 gets me to the 48+min video.
Watch Free on IMDb TV

Thanks. I was trying to watch S1E1.  Now I see that all of season one's episodes EXCEPT that one have the "watch this episode" link beneath them. I assume that's not available? I now have episode 2 going.
