continue watching list - how to delete unwanted programmes

Spent the evening trying the first 5 minutes of a load of programmes to see if i liked them.  Now they are stuck in my continue watching list and I cannot find out how to remove them from the "continue watching' list.  "My Watchlist"is fine, that has an edit button to use.

Re: continue watching list - how to delete unwanted programmes

I found the easiest way is to search for the series, you want to delete.

Go to the last episode of the last series and scroll all the way to the end, say leave 15 seconds to play.

Once it finishes, it assumes you have watched the entire series and removes it from your list.

Easiest to do on the computer I find.

Hi @NigeH

Totally agree that nowtv should offer an option to remove stuff from your continue watching list if you wish to get rid of it (even if you have to use an access pin to prevent other members of the family accidentally removing content off the list).

The only sort of work around is to go to the last episode of a particular show that you have been watching and fast forward it towards the end of the show until you get to the end of the credits to hopefully let the show drop off the list which is a bit hit & miss from my experience.

The problem with the above if it's not a movie, boxset or one off single show, then if the tv show is on catchup then next weeks show will be automatically added to the list again Smiley Mad.

Re: continue watching list - how to delete unwanted programmes

Thank you. Certainly works for box sets but yet to find a solution for the pesky catch up programmes.  Literally watch just a minute of a programee and it is locked into "continue watching" even though i may detest the programme. Did write to Now asking them to stop default me to "continue watching" but never got a reply.

Hi @NigeH

Yeah it's so annoying not having an option to remove unwanted episodes on the Continue Watching section, where many customers have asked for the feature.

Sometimes, when somebody on the forum mentions that a particular TV show episode doesn't play, then now and again i will check it out to to see it works for me.

Then i am stuck with this TV show in my Continue Watching folder and need to go through the faffing around to try and remove it (a simple click of a button would be much easier).

Just came to this thread after Googling if it's possible. So annoying that Now TV hasn't yet added this feature.

Yes, the only way to remove them from the list is to either watch them or simply fast-forward until you get close to the end and let it play to a finish. 

 

Out of interest, the BBC iplayer has exactly the same issue.

You can remove the continue watching progs on BBC Iplayer via a laptop only just realised recently after it kept trying to make me watch the same episode of Silent Witness again and again !!!
