Is it possible to get a notification email/sms when a film/tv show is released or airs the first time?

E-mail: Watchlist updates -> If you have an IMDb Watchlist, we will send you an email when a title in your watchlist becomes available to watch (e.g. goes into wide release in your country). If you uncheck this box, you will opt out of receiving this type of e-mail communication from IMDb. You will still continue to receive other e-mail communication from IMDb.These emails are currently only being sent to customers in the United States. Check back for updates on emails for customers in other countries. ...
At one time IMDb also sent an email whenever a title on a user's watch list was shown on TV. However, this produced a lot of email notifications and IMDb discontinued that feature as a result.

Notification of the first time a film is shown on TV could be very problematic. This feature would be useless if the user could not specify where they live. It would also be helpful if a user could specify the channels they can receive. It would also be helpful if the user could specify an initial date before which showings would be disregarded.
