Important: These options aren't available for all shows and movies on every streaming service.

In the Google TV app:

  1. At the top right, tap your profile picture.
  2. Tap Manage services.
  3. Select the service you want to add.

Manage your Watchlist

  1. Search or browse for the title you want to add to your Watchlist.
  2. Open the title’s details page.

  1. Search or browse for a movie or show you’ve seen before.
  2. Open the title’s details page.
