FeedFliks tells you when ‘Saved’ movies in your Queue become available

05 Oct

We’ve all done this before:  heard about an interesting movie and tried to rent it on Netflix. If the DVD is not released yet, Netflix allows you to ‘save’ this to your queue. This is great, but there’s no way to easily figure out when that movie is released on DVD and see it quickly. Netflix moves it to the bottom of your queue (as they should) where it sits and sits…

Not any longer.

On your FeedFliks page, you’ll now be able to see if any of the titles you’ve saved in your Queue has become available recently. Under the ‘Maximize your membership’ section you’ll see if any saved movies have become available.

Clicking on the link will allow you to see what those movies are and let you quickly move any titles you want to the top of your Queue. And if the title is available via Instant Watch, then you’ll be able to hit the ‘Play’ button right there and start watching it. Say goodbye to long and interminable waits.

    I think this is a great idea, but ran into an error message upon clicking “Move to Top”: [queue out of Date ETag mismatch] and [Queue Add failed].

    Hi Matthew – what might have happened is that you changed your Queue on Netflix and FeedFliks hasn’t caught up yet. So when you make a change via FF, NF stops us with a ‘Out of Date’ mismatch. Makes sense?

    Hmmm… I suppose it’s possible, but in my particular situation, I haven’t messed with my queue in several days, and only hit the “move to top” from this site today.
