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!

IMDb has a helpful but underutilized feature showing you what titles in your Watchlist are available to watch online - Hulu, Amazon, Crackle, WB, etc. Why not expand this to YouTube (as long as the videos are legal uploads), perhaps even Netflix (although I understand it's a paid service IMDb doesn't have a partnership with, so it might be out of the question).

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Which Sites Stream Which Films...(adding a field to IMDB Film pages).

Can IMDB add a tab or section under the title page of appropriate/affiliated films, that lists which streaming platforms make each film available?

i.e. if "Inception" is available on Netflix or Amazon, etc, etc. we can deduce where and how to watch it...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Cross-Link Between IMDB and Libraries (incl. Netflix & Amazon).

I'd like to be able to see which films on my IMDB watchlist are available at a local library, on Netflix, or on Amazon. Eventually this would help me decide when and why to visit the library, sign up for Netflix, or place an order on Amazon.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled IMDB should work together. Lots of benefits for both partners..

Since it's getting more and more common to stream movies from service providers like netflix, Hulu, vudu, iTunes and others, I think it's time for IMDB to make deals with those companies to implement a database that keeps track of where the movie can be seen. I suggest that IMDB include a little logo badge from the streaming service ex.Netflix, and when touching the badge you is informed about which country it's awailable in. If the the database is well implemented there is minimal work to be done to keep track of what's in and what's out of the streamingservice. Since IMDB, in no dobt, is the best and most used movie database on the Internet, I think it's time to take some steps further into the year 2015 and implement this feature..(and more ;-)) Thanks to IMDB for all the works so far, and especially the good looking app that works like a charm and also is very intuitive to use.
Kind regards Lasse

I would like a where can I watch this feature added to IMDB I also think it could help IMDB with funding, getting commission for advertising said movie on ______ network. Say I want to watch a movie, could there be a feature telling me where / when it is on so I don't have to check Netflix, Hulu+, HBO go, Cable, On Demand, Amazon, Blu-ray, DVD.

You need to show more site availability--sites such as Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, etc. I never see any sites other than Amazon anymore even when I know that the shows are available elsewhere.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Potential New Service or Feature for IMDb.

In addition to my cable service and its premium channels (HBO, Showtime, etc.) I also subscribe to Netflix and Hulu Plus.

I think it would be great if IMDb provided a service, even a paid service, where I could register my "profile" of the various programming sources that I have, and when I watch a trailer for a movie that I like, the service could tell me things like - This movie will be available via Verizon On Demand on date xxx. and This movie will be available on Netflix on date xxx. That way I can decide if I want to see it in the theater or wait for it on cable. Also it would help a lot to find movies and such that may already be available so I don't have to search each service and channel separately.

This appears to be a dead topic, but the integrations requested here would massively increase the utility of the IMDB app and watchlist functionality. Does anyone know of an alternative that provides a method for maintaining a watchlist and filtering comprehensively by streaming or disc availability? I've been using Flixster but it is missing features IMDB has, like the ability to manually reorganize your lists.
