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!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Adding Netflix to Ways you Watch.

When looking at the list of ways to watch a TV program or movie, it currently shows its Amazon status and whether or not it is on TV. It would be incredibly convenient if the item’s Netflix status was also listed.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Suggestion: Add Network and Syndication Fields to the Details section.

I would like to see 2 new fields added to the Details section for TV Series:

Network (to display the original Networks that run the series)

Syndication (to display the current Networks where the user can actually watch the series)

Example: Criminal Minds - Network = CBS (current)
Syndication = iOn, USA, Netfilx, Prime, HULU
I'm sure I am not accurate in what I wrote above but hopefully you understand what I am getting at.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Watchlist improvement.

Hello, I just discovered your watchlist feature when I was searching for the movie Phenomenon. Looks awesome, can't wait to build one. Just wanted to let you know that I would personally watch a 30 second video in order to see which service might be airing it, such as, Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, etc.. I understand IMDb isn't a streaming service itself but if you could clue me in without having to log in and type the movie name multiple times on a Xbox remote, 30 seconds is SO much more preferable. Do that and I'll put you on my phone! Heh, I'll probably do it anyway, but if I do I would then likely have the time to take a 5 minute survey at some point in my day in order to unlock a full day of ad-free use. Maybe that's just me but I doubt it!!! Anywho that's my $0.02. Love y'all!!

Eh? You can already do this, surely. 

(From either your Watchlist, or via search), you open that movie/show's title page, then tap on videos section to see its trailer.

Presumably you mean the trailer... as that's where you sometimes see a logo for a channel in the corner or somewhere else (at beginning/end, channel may be appear). 

The trouble is:
1. A trailer with the channel on it, may or may not exist. 

2. It may show channel for one market (say, BBC for UK users), but not others (in US it might be on another service, say Netflix).

Does IMDB offer a feature where you can search for a particular film or TV show and it will tell you which sites are showing it for free or for rent? Because that would be very useful and save a lot of searching!

Hi all!

I created a website (vidchuck.com) which can refine your IMDb watchlist by Netflix availability, Just paste your watchlist URL or upload your exported watchlist.

It works for 50+ different countries. If there's enough interest, I might extend it with other streaming services.

It's still in beta, so if you spot any glitches, please let me know!

WOW, this is brilliantly simple! And works on any list added as CSV, I've tried. Thanks a lot.

Yes adding more services would be excellent.

Presumably it uses your current IP as the searched country? So if one changes their country (via a proxy/VPN) then you'd get results for a different region...is that correct?

Also, it may be useful to add a function to only show available titles. As if the list has thousands on it, going through the few available titles is somewhat cumbersome. 

But otherwise 10/10!

Yes, that's correct. 

In case your IP is in a country that I don't support (yet), you'll see a warning message. If you don't see a warning message, it means I'm supporting your country.

PS. Thanks for your feedback!

Another tip for Mac users... 

Save the webpage as a .webarchive file in Safari, then you can offline it for future reference. 

(even QuickLook "cmd+spacebar" on said .webarchive files, can then open tapped-on available titles in Safari, for example.) 

Obviously, it'll need re-doing, as and when the available catalogues change over time.

Jake - Thanks for creating that site. Was just looking to do this and found this thread. Are you planning to update with Hulu, etc? Would be great. Thanks again.

Hi Melody! Yes, adding other streaming services (incl. Hulu) is definitely on the roadmap. I can't promise if'll be days or weeks before it's available, but I'll make sure to let you know once its' there!

Wow, great work! So it now does three: 

 

International: Netflix

US: Hulu, Showtime

 

I suppose we really need Amazon PrimeApple TV+, Disney+ (all international), sometime. ;-)

The proposed feature seems to have been partially implemented in regards to Hulu and Tubi. So, the technical capacity for it to be done with regards to Netflix streaming service specifically may be just over the horizon, such as simply a matter of both the Amazon company and Netflix company wanting it.

What does this mean?

IMDb now indicates whether or not some movies are available on Hulu, Tubi and some other TV/phone apps, Amazon plugins or Roku channels. The only example I recall off the top of my head at the moment, however, is Woke. Understand?

My understanding of where this info is found... 

 

- On the website (browsers): you can see it under "Distributors". 

- On the mobile apps (iOS/Android): you can see it via "Country of origin">tab "Where to Watch". 

 

So "Woke", for example shows: "Prime Video" & " Prime Video (Rent or Buy)" when you hot the "Where to Watch" tab – the first is part of your free subscription stuff. 

 

But when you tap on either of those tabs, it still doesn't take you to the title in the app. You have to manually go and search for it. Not difficult, but somewhat half-baked. 

 

Do I have that all correct?

Yes, although apparently there was a change in the time lapsed since I last posted.

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but you can just use this:

Does it work well? And if so, for users in what countries?

This is for US & UK only, currently. 

 

AFAICT, you cannot import any IMdB lists into it though. So you have to manually search specific items you're after, or otherwise browse what they're showing as available. 

 

So goo to know, but no cigar! :-)
