On my smart tv when I log in through the app I cannot find my watch list or anyway to search title

I have a LG smart tv and and used the pre-loaded IMDB app and signed in through my Amazon account.  I also have an Amazon firestick with the IMDB app that is connected to my Amazon account.  When access IMDB tv through either of these apps I cannot find any way to find my Watchlist or a way to create one.  Also, there is no way to search for a particular title.  I can find my watch list on my PC and Samsung phone, but I want to watch on my t.v.

Hi @Linda

Your Watchlist on IMDb.com & the IMDb app is not available for viewing on your TV device.

Alternatively if you prefer to browse titles on your computer to add to your watchlist, I would recommend to use the watchlist on Amazon Prime Video, which should sync with your Fire TV device.

I use Amzaon Fire Stick on my Samsung Smart TV.  I also have IMDb, but haven't been able to search for a movie that might be on IMDb when I open the IMDb site.  I have been able to search on my laptop, but not TV.   Suggestions?

I can't find a search option in the app either.  However, if you do a regular search for a movie, it will show if there is an option to watch on IMDb TV.

@carlahonen46  Please refer to the answer I got from Taylor above. Apparently, wish list and search don't work through the tv app.  Poorly designed, if you ask me.

Right.  If I do a Search, some movies available on IMDb are shown as available on Amazon Prime, but if I search on my laptop I can get a larger list of movies on IMDb which includes movies not shown on Amazon Prime.  Lately, I found a movie on my laptop list, but this movie was not shown on the Amazon Prime list. So, apparently the movie I desire is available on IMDb, but it doesn't show up on the Search done using my TV.  So, I wonder, are many movies on IMDb inventory excluded from being watched on TV leaving the only option to watch using a laptop or phone?  I'm spending WAY too much time on this issue when there a so many other routes to take to find entertainment.  Know what I mean? Thanks for your response.

@Linda Thanks! Can't imagine why they do not have a search and a way to see wish list! SMH
