How to View and Delete Your Amazon Prime Video Watch History

Amazon Prime Video is packed full of great movies and TV shows, from Amazon originals to licensed third-party content. Whenever you watch anything on Prime Video, even for a minute, it's added to your watch history.

But what if you get halfway through something and decide you don't want to watch it anymore? It's annoying to see it clogging up the homepage of Prime Video. As such, we're going to show you how to manage and delete your Amazon Prime Video watch history.

How to Manage Your Amazon Prime Video Watch History

When you don't finish watching something on Prime Video, whether you've seen a few episodes of a TV season or got halfway through a movie (perhaps when hosting a Prime Video watch party), it appears on the Continue watching row on the homepage. It's also used to feed your recommendation algorithm.

That's great if you do actually want to keep watching it. However, if you've stopped watching it entirely, it's annoying for that show or movie to show on your homepage for eternity.
