It would be great if IMDb could send alerts to my smartphone for items in my watchlist such as reminders for upcoming TV episodes and movie release reminders.

Hello,

You can make a "New release reminder" for the Watchlist movies. I recommend this especially for smartphone apps.

This function will remind the user that the movie from Watchlist it's been released today in his country.

I don't know if it's a new idea, but i sincerely hope that it will help you and you're users.

How about a button that allows you to add upcoming films to a "watch out for" (or something of the kind) list? I don't mean the "Watchlist", I mean something else. Basically it's a way of us being able to add films that have not yet premiered to a specific list (both on your website/mobile app) and when the release date comes, you get a notification on your screen saying "XYZ film is out today" ? I'm just suggesting this because it would be a way of making our lives much easier. 

Also, if people check-in to a film, how about a reminder like "Liked this film? Rate it" or something. If the app already does this I apologise, but mine does not so I have no clue.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Follow button functionality.

There should be a "Follow" button on movie pages so that I can get notifications in email or mobile when a movie is finally released. I find tons of movies that I would like to see, but my life is busy and I find myself forgetting to check or not noticing they came out. I don't know if this has been suggested but I have been thinking about it for a while and am finally making the suggestion. Other functionality could be added to the follow button like news related to the movie, awards, etc. Anyway, hope this gets added. I can't be the only one who would enjoy this. I love imdb and use it all the time. Thanks.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Dvd notifications!.

I love the notifications feature and how it works for box office releases. However I watch most films on dvd form, and I'm wondering is there a way to be notified of new dvd releases? It would be amazing if we could only get notifications for new dvd releases on our watchlist. Anyone know a way to do this?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Watchlist Notifications: TV Shows (IMDB App).

I would like the ability to add TV shows to my Watchlist and receive push notifications.

A lot of shows are either simulcast or air on the same day in Canada, so using the US release dates wouldn't pose a problem.

I would like to receive push notifications when movies on my watchlist are playing/released in my area.  I do not want to receive notifications for ALL new releases though.  Is this possible?

I really like this app and wonder if we could get notifications of when a TV show's new episode is added. That has been tagged in our watch list.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled IMDb alerts for highly rated.

Would be great if IMDb sent alerts for films/tv which are highly rated. You could perhaps set the rating level e.g. min level of 8 or you would be swamped, set the genre etc. The alert could then give the option to add to watchlist. This could be expanded so you can follow favourite actors, be alerted when a TV series in your watchlist is about to air. The database has so much potential to be used in interesting ways, but don't see it happening. Does IMDb have an API tool for app developers to come in and fill this gap?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Add actors to a "watch list" just like you can add films.

A cool feature to add would be to add actors to a watch list just like we can add movies to our watch list. We would be alerted whenever there is news about that actor or if new films are announced that they will be featured in.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Regarding notifications of the particular interest.

Why can't we get notified on a particular movie or particular actress or actor or a particular season ??
In android version there was an option of getting notified from particular interest .. why not in iOS version ?? ... how can we keep a track on the things we like in hundreds of new releases every month ??

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Follow directors and actors with specific content notifications.

I thought it would be cool to be able to follow specific directors, writers, actors, whatever and receive notifications when new movies are coming out or news specific to your favorite movie and tv related people. I am a big fan of directors so I often look up my favorites to see what movies they may have coming out. It would be cool if this app simply sent you a push notification to your phone to inform you of news surrounding your favorite stars and directors.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Opening today iOS.

When opening IMDB from that notification, it goes to the movie times of the first movie list in the notification. Why not have it list all the movies opening today so people can look at the movie times for the movie they are interested? Or better yet have it so it goes to the movie description? I love the notification, but also hate it because of this problem. I also would like to know all the movies opening today, because the notification always ends in "..." which makes me think there are more then the 3 it lists.

I want to be up to date with new episodes of my favorite shows but there's no option to do that on imdb. I've used it for a very decent time now but I think we need that option.

The app should allow us to be notified when there's an episode update, trailer added, or new season announced for TV shows in our watch list. After adding numerous items to my watch list I was disappointed to find out this wasn't an option
