thank you for the reply but that  is the settings that I always have and so far since I have had this account the only email I have ever received is the one where I posted this question. for example if in my watch list if I have a current and upcoming show I don't get any notice at all by email that it is upcoming. on some websites/apps that I use they also have the feature to check off the episodes that I have watched letting me know what I have missed by accident or for some other reason.

Hi Roy,

IMDb does not provide any notifications for television premieres.

If you have a film in your WatchList, you should received a notification like the following:


I also periodically receive notifications like the following:

Hi Roy, and thanks Dan!

One of the best ways to track the movies and episodes of TV shows that you've seen is by rating the title once you have seen it. 

For TV shows, you can view the Rated Episodes page on the desktop version of the website by adding /eprate to the end of the URL. For example:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108778/eprate

I hope this helps! Please let us know if we can offer any further assistance.
