Amazon Fire Stick is a great streaming device and an excellent option if you want to cut the cord. Why pay for an expensive cable TV service, when you can get all you need with a one-time purchase? Sure, you need to subscribe to Amazon Prime as well, but that’s much cheaper than cable TV.

If you are a new Amazon Fire Stick owner, you are probably wondering how to find your watch list on the Fire Stick? It’s dead simple, read on to find out. We also have some useful watch list tips.

Fire Stick and Fire TV Watch List

A watch list is a list of movies or TV shows you can use to remember all the great titles you want to see, but don’t have the time to watch right away. Websites like IMDB popularized this feature, but you don’t need any external apps or sites to check your Fire Stick watch list.

It is located on the Home screen of your device. Here is how to find watch list on the Fire Stick:

  1. Open the Home menu on your Fire Stick.
  2. Next, look for the Watch list tab. Select it.
  3. You’ll see all the content of your watch list, which will be empty if you’re a completely new user. To remove items from the watch list, simply press the Menu button on your Fire Stick remote and select the Remove from the watch list option.

Don’t worry; an explanation for adding items to your watch list is coming right up.

No longer a watchlist tab under Home. Instead I found it under “Your Videos”. I could have sworn that section was missing on my dad’s Stick.

Is there a way to add shows/movies from apps such as Netflix to the Amazon Watchist?
Avatar Charles J Messing says:
Apparently, my firestick TV only knows a few of my watchlist movies. It constantly urges me to view movies I have expressed no desire to see. ALSO it continues to push movies I have already seen. Isn’t there some way to remove those I have seen? How to remove a movie from the suggestions onscreen??????
Avatar Ray Timmons says:
Amazon Fire Stick insists on hiding episodes in apps that I own and tries to trick me into paying for a new app to watch them. I have to go thru hoops to get to episodes I own.

Is there a way to download the Amazon Watchlist as a list, CSV, or spreadsheet? Thanks!
