How to report a bug?

Every month, I get an email about the new shows streaming on various services.  For Hulu, Disney+, Prime, all the others, when I am in the IMDB listing for that show and click on the link to to the service, it takes me to the show page on that service, the one that describes the show and let's me add it to my watchlist.  So far, so good.  For Netflix only though, it takes me to the actual episode player and I must click to play the show, quickly click the back arrow to go to the show details page, where I can now click to add it to my watchlist.  It's inconvenient, especially when my internet or the sites are running slow, not huge, ,just annoying.  Is this a bug?  Can I report it somehow?  Thanks!

Hello @bee_feuless 

Thank you for your feedback about the IMDb listing of shows.

We appreciate that you took the time to share your thoughts with us. IMDb.com is constantly being updated and improved, and we welcome all comments and suggestions aimed at improving its features, flexibility and ease of use.

If you do not want the content from Netflix to be autoplayed upon clicking the watch link, we can suggest you to sign out of Netflix, or use the incognito window so it will take you to the title details.

Please let us know if we can offer any further help.

@Edward​ Thanks.  Unfortunately, that would not allow me to add the show to my watchlist.  While we are on the topic, this time, I found that the Hulu links just go to the Hulu main page, not the show being clicked on under "watch on..." or "Other ways to watch..."

Thanks!

Hello @bee_feuless 

We want to thank you again for your feedback about the IMDb ""Watch Now" links

Regarding the Netflix Watch Option, our current logic redirects to the play page for the associated title as intended vs. redirect to the Netflix title overview page. 

As mentioned in the thread above, we welcome all comments and suggestions aimed at improving its features and we have passed along your comments regarding this feature to the appropriate team for visibility and future improvements.

Concerning the issue you outlined with the Hulu Watch Option redirect, I have filed a ticket for the appropriate team to investigate further.

I'll reply once we receive further information

Thank you for your patience!
