What is the connection between my IMDB Watchlist and my Amazon Instant Video Watchlist? Linked on unconnected? Plans to connect them?

IMDb's Watchlist is already aware of which titles are available for viewing on Amazon Instant Video and you can filter the list based on that (so that the list will only show you titles that you can watch online). At this time however there is no way to import or connect an Amazon watchlist.

As for removing a title from your watchlist when you cast a vote, there are pros and cons to doing that (some users don't like having titles automatically deleted/changed as a result of an external action). It's something that we may consider doing based on feedback/requests.

Any update on this? This is something that would be really great to see. Unified watchlist on IMDB and amazon. The linkages are there already as mentioned previously. As Amazon becomes a more prevalent player in the streaming space, this could really be a boost to them. It could also help inform on what movies people are interested in having added to the streaming service via what has been added to IMDB watchlists!
