This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Watchlist: Refine by Netflix streaming availability!

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.

It isn't possible to see the first two items you selected, but it is possible to list those available at Amazon using the Advanced Title Search.

Click on Advanced Search in the restriction part of the Search menu at the top of any page (usually shows All).

Click on the text link Use Advanced Title Search.

In the  Title Data box select the options you want (e.g. Blu-ray at Amazon.com and DVD at Amazon.com)
near the bottom of the page, select Your Watchlist in the Lists Include box.

Select the Display type and  Sort order you prefer and click Search
 
This is the result for the above options : http://www.imdb.com/search/title?has=asin-blu-ray-us,asin-dvd-us&lists=watchlist&sort=alpha,...

If you have a large list, you can further restrict the  results. For example you could restrict it to items you have not seen - or alternatively to items you have seen.

There are also some streaming options available to link to -- check the thread at https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/imdb-should-work-together-lots-of-benefits-for-both-partners for information on them.
