One of the most requested features is now available to all users – My Queue. With that, you can better manage shows that interest you. On every show page, you will see an “Add To Queue” button. On every episode page, you will see an “Add Series To Queue” button. To access My Queue page, just click the username drop down on top of every page. We will roll out My Queue to our mobile apps as well.

Have fun and enjoy watching more videos!

[More comment on Aug 9]: Appreciate everyone for sharing your constructive feedback. It helps us decide how to improve and whether to decommission Watchlist and Favorites. Especially appreciate those comments that explain how you use Favorites and Watchlist today and feedback on how to improve My Queue.

Also about the Play button on My Queue, we try to predict the episode a user most likely going to watch based on the user's watch history of the show.

One cool feature: mouse over the grey vertical lines at the beginning of the row, then you can drag and drop the rows as you wish.

[More comment on Aug 10] Again, thanks for providing feedback. We have decided not to decommission Watchlist and Favorites any time soon. We do encourage you all to give My Queue a try and use this forum topic to give us more feedback, so we can make it better. We are already working on a few enhancements on My Queue and hope to roll them out in the next few days.

[Update on Aug 15] We have removed the decommission comment from Favorites and Watchlist. We have also added a few enhancements to My Queue. We will continue making improvements and encourage you all give My Queue a try. Roku users, queue is already added to the latest Roku app, which will be available once the app is approved by Roku.

Great step forward, but a few tweaks would be nice!

First, an add all for the favorites list and watchlist would be nice.
Second, shows that have the episodes removed (licensed by another company) mess up the queue list
Third, I did like being able to use favorites as well.. a list of favorites. Eg, a series that I had watched and liked enough to add to a list of favorites. Can't do that now with the queue if the show no longer exists, or is not yet available on CR.

Is there a place where queue can tell me where I'm at in a series? (or to specify if I've already seen some) Alternatively, the soon-to-be-replaced android app including full queue integration would help part-way.

And hopefully multi-season shows will work correctly soon. (Hayate currently shows as something like 34/25 and instead of a next button I get "watch" which takes me to s1e1)

Like the idea of a queue, in theory, but it looks absolutely hideous. Very little information is shown and it looks really off. It's seriously misaligned for one. Remove for every show is like a line off which led me to accidentally deleting two shows I didn't want to already. A lot of the play buttons as well. If it's suppose to be a replacement a clear number of what has and hasn't been seen, like on the watchlist, would be nice.

Don't like it being a replacement for favorites and the watchlist. The watchlist does a lot of things that the queue doesn't. It also let me keep track of shows from other places too. Favorites isn't a big deal but it was a nice place to put my favorite shows.

Edit: Don't know why but it's not misaligned anymore.

Also there doesn't seem to be a proper link between stuff watched and the queue. At least for some things. I've seen 66 episodes of Reborn. for example, but when I click play it started at episode 1. Would imagine it'd be the same for a couple others I've had on hold for a while. After checking it also went to episode 1 even though I've watched 74 episodes of it. Bit worried about that. Can't continue watching something if I don't know where I left off.

I don't get it. What's it supposed to do? Dump all the episodes you haven't watched yet into one area? Why do you have to "add to queue" and then add series to queue" (2 steps)?

I don't see how this is of more use than watchlist where can select watching/finished etc and what episode you're at.
And how does this queue thing allow for ranking of favourites?? If you're going to trash those 2 features, this queue thing should have something similar...
