My List lets you create a customized row of TV shows and movies you want to watch as you browse our catalog. Some older devices may refer to My List as Instant Queue, but it functions exactly the same way. Once you’ve added several titles to your My List, we’ll sort it for you, putting the titles you’re most likely to want to watch right up front. Each profile has its own list to ensure a personalized viewing experience. Read on for answers to some of our most common questions about My List.
My List is available on the Netflix website and all Netflix ready devices. Some older devices may refer to My List as “Instant Queue,” but it functions exactly the same way. To find your My List, visit Netflix.com/MyList, or sign in to Netflix on your device and scroll to the My List row.
The kid-friendly section of Netflix does not display the My List feature, but you can switch back to the standard Netflix experience at any time to regain access.

We order the TV shows and movies in your My List by what you’re most likely to watch. Here are a few reasons we might move titles to the front of My List:
You added the title to your My List recently.
A new season of a show in your My List recently became available.
Your friend recently watched a title in your My List. (Only used if your Netflix account is connected to Facebook).
A title in your My List will expire soon and no longer be available.
On the website, we will occasionally show you the reason we’ve moved a title to the front of your My List under the picture of the TV show or movie.
If you never use My List or rarely watch from this row, it will slowly drop lower on the screen when browsing our TV shows and movies. On newer devices, My List won't be displayed if nothing is added to it.
If you are traveling:
While My List is a globally supported feature, My List will only display TV shows and movies that are available in the region you're currently located in. Everything you add to My List is saved, so when you return home or when the title becomes available in your current region, you will see it in your My List again.
If you are not traveling, and you are in the US:
If titles are missing from your My List, it may be caused by the US-only manual ordering feature. Follow the steps below to turn off manual ordering.
