Prominent Placement of the Shows/Movies Streaming Service.

I always have trouble finding out, whilst browsing IMDb, which service provider will be or is showing or streaming the movies and TV programs etc listed in IMDb. What about placing the Service Providers name just under the 'Ratings'. eg: Netflix, TBS, Amazon Prime, Apple etc. This of course would apply to IMDb browser and iDevice app.

Thank you for that link but not quite what I meant.

Maybe I should rephrase it and say place the "Distributor" more prominently and that Distributor would be based on your profile location, eg; 'Game of Thrones = BSkyB for the UK or HBO for the USA or SoHo for New Zealand OR  for "Ozark = Netflix OR  for 'Jack Ryan = Amazon Prime.

You already list this information within 'Company Credits' > 'Production Co' > See more >> 'Distributors'. All I am asking is that this info be placed more prominently.

I personally would be more likely to click around within a particular movie or TV show listing if I knew AT A GLANCE it was being distributed by a company available in my country than if it was not available.

Is this not what IMDb want us to do "Click Around" within the site. Does this not drive revenue.



PS: is there a way to change the conversation title, in this case to make it more relevant. eg "Placement of Distributor to be more Prominent"
