I think it would be so cool if you could export the imdb top 250 movies list since it is not possible to reach it at the moment. Right now the only possibility is to somehow scrape it but I don't know how to do that. This would be so helpful because you could export the list and then import it on another website which then checks on which platforms you can stream the movies.

There is already a request/idea asking for information on available streamings directly on IMDb...!

Vincent, can you provide a link to the getSatisfaction idea page you mention?

ipPxl p, why do you say the list is not available?

115 votes in favor of it! Unless mistaken, the highest response to ideas on this forum.
The topic title mentions Netflix, but this thread collects all similar requests on streaming availability.

What is "the website which then checks on which platforms you can stream the movies"?
