Unfortunately there's no option to remove items from Continue Watching, they will disappear eventually.

 

If they really get on your nerves you can do the following, but it's a pain...

 

You can remove movies by clicking play, then FF all the way until it reaches the end, then click PLAY to play out the last second of the movie. It will then disappear.

 

For boxsets you need to go to the very last episode in the very last season (if more than one season available) and again FF that all the way to the end and play out the last second.

 

For catch-up content you're stuck as doing the above will remove the current episode, when the next episode becomes available it will appear again.

 

In addition I've noticed some bugs in Continue Watching recently where episodes will reappear or not disappear properly when they should, so you might find you are stuck even doing the above.

 

Hopefully NOW TV will give us the option to remove things soon.

Re: How can i delete a series from my continue to watch tab

Struggling with deleting stuff from my continued watching listing. I understand the watching the last episode of the series fast forwarding to the end then letting the system delete it as it thinks you have seen the whole series.

However, I have bought a Sky Cinema pass and watching a couple of films.  As we all do when the credits roll at the end of the film we maybe move on to something else. The system thinks you have not finished the film and continues to store it in your 'Continue watching'...even after your pass has expired. The above solution does not work of course as your voucher has expired and you can't access the film ??

Such a simple option of deleting stuff on Continued Watching - why is there no delete button??

Re: How can i delete a series or in fact anything from my continue to watch tab

This problem has been around since at least 2017 and there still does not seem to be a answer that works in all cases and none easily.

 

Can Sky / Now tv please let us know if a solution is in the pipeline.

 

Other than this the application gives affordable and flexible access to Sky TV for those who do not / cannot put up a dish or afford the ongoing committment of a fuller Sky subscription.
