Once I bring up my Amazon Firestick interface on the TV, how do I conduct a search within IMDB?  I can start the IMDB TV app, but there is no interface available to search OR to show an IMDB watchlist created online with my laptop.

Hi DanF,

At this time, IMDb does not offer an app on Fire TV devices to access your Watchlist or search for titles in the IMDb database. On your Fire TV Stick, you can browse the IMDb TV channel for movies and TV shows to stream for free with ads.

If you'd like to search for all titles available on IMDb TV, you can search for IMDb TV titles via the IMDb Advanced Title Search on the desktop website using the "IMDb TV (US Only)" option in the Instant Watch Options section, and find IMDb TV titles in your Watchlist or other lists on the desktop website using the Where to Watch refine options.

Please let us know if we can offer any further help.

That's a very good answer because I was wondering the same thing! Thank you! IMDB TV really needs to "step up!" & add this feature on their app.! Why have "add to Watch List" as an option only to not allow us a means to find a "Watch List" tab so I can go and pick a movie or tv show I've added to watch at a later time!

I like the content offered by IMDB but until you offer a watchlist and search function with firestick app it is virtually unusable to watch a series or continue watching a movie that got interrupted. We will be regular users only when these options become available. thanx dave

You can't be serious.

When do you expect to be able to offer a search function?

Nope. It is horrible. The worst part is that some titles aren't recognized by the Fire search, so it may be on IMDb TV, but will not populate in the Fire search.
