Watchlist: Refine by Netflix streaming availability!

Why can't my Watchlist be refined by titles available on Netflix? This has to be the most popular streaming content source! My Watchlist says that I have hundreds of titles available to stream, but almost all of them are available only as paid rentals. I'd like to know what's available in the service for which I've already paid!

I'm afraid that IMDB is a member of the Amazon family of companies, so the instant viewing options will tend to favour sister sites (like Amazon Instants or LoveFilm) or open sites of good standing (the Internet Archive for public domain films - YouTube has a lot of films free to watch, some legitimately uploaded but a lot are illegal, so it'd be unwise to promote such a link), rather than promoting rival services. It is the same way your buying options for home media are the local Amazon site (if one exists) and not any other company selling DVDs or Blu-rays.

The best place to find out what is available on Netflix through IMDB is to check out the various Netflix lists users maintain and you can filter your Watchlist using one of those (you could bookmark that search result for future reference). At least this side of a anti-competition/monopoly legal ruling.

Can the IMDB developers create a link to Netflix?

Has anyone thought of adding a Netflix logo to the pages of films/TV shows currently on Netflix? Would be a great way to drive traffic to the website to explore what is on Netflix.

I think IMDb and its users would greatly benefit from a simple addition of Netflix to its connected counterparts. I would specifically like:

1. An option on my IMDb watchlist that allows me to view only the items currently on Netflix.

2. If Netflix and IMDb connected Netflix could have all of my IMDb watchlist items already in a Netflix section titled "Your IMDb Watchlist" or something to that effect.

3. Finally, I would really like it if adding an item to my Netflix list would automatically add it to my IMDb watchlist as well. This would of course be an option that can be enabled or disabled because I'm sure some people wouldn't like this.

There should be a section in IMDB that shows a ranking of movies that are currently on Netflix. It can be ranked by the score that IMDB gives. It will really help people choose from the huge libraries of movies on Netflix, most of which people have never heard of.

I had this moment of enlightenment today, where iMDB could integrate a Netflix-available feat. This would just tell the visitor if the movie they want to know about, is available on Netflix.

I know linking the iMDB page to the Netflix one is on another level, but this small feat would surely enhance the experience of present, and future iMDB visitors.

Is there a way to show links on the movie/TV show pages to their Netflix page and not just Amazon and Hulu?

Hi IMDb. Great IOS App , thx. Idea: I would like to be able to filter my watchlist on whats currently available on different streaming services. The way you search in fx netflix is horrible, and it would really help to know (or even get notified) when one of your watchlist movies are made available on Netflix, HBO etc.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Watchlist - Movies showing on premium movie channels.

I assume that many movie buffs (including me) subscribe to one or more premium movie channels (HBO, Encore, etc.) It would be great if the watchlist would show upcoming airings of movies on premium channels.
