How To Remove From Continue Watching in Peacock TV

Peacock TV remembers how far you’ve come with a TV show or movie and allows you to pick up where you left off. This feature is called “Continue Watching” and saves you from having to scroll through the content to find the last scene you’ve watched.

How To Remove From Continue Watching in Peacock TV

While the option is usually convenient, in some cases, you may want to remove certain content from the list. For example, if you’ve stopped watching a TV show or don’t like a particular movie. Unfortunately, there’s only one way to remove a show or movie from your “Recently Watched” list on Peacock, no matter what device you use.

Yes, we know that many websites state you can click the vertical ellipsis upon highlighting a “Continue Watching” entry, but that option is gone.

Here’s the correct and only way to delete items from your “Continue Watching list” at the time of writing.

How To Remove Shows and Movies From Continue Watching in Peacock on a PC

Many people use Peacock on their computers. If you’re one of them and want to remove a TV show or movie from the Continue Watching list, it is fairly challenging to achieve but still possible. The reason is that Peacock makes it difficult to remove “Continue Watching” entries on a PC browser because they don’t offer an on/off option, plus, they challenge you to beat their chosen “Up Next” movie or show. Here’s how to remove movies/shows from your Continue Watching list on Peacock.

  1. Launch “Peacock TV” on your computer browser.
  2. Select the “Featured” category. This is currently the only location to include “Continue Watching” on a PC browser.
  3. Browse “Continue Watching” to search for the content you wish to remove. Click on the show or movie.
  4. For movies, resume playing the film and fast forward to the last minute, then let it play until it finishes, but DON’T let it launch the “Up Next” movie, or it will appear in “Continue Watching.”
  5. Click on “Pause,” then click on the “X” in the top left corner to close the movie and return to the browsing screen. The item disappears from your “Continue Watching” list.
  6. For TV shows and similar content with episodes, resume playing back the last-played episode, then click on the “Pause” button.
  7. Select the “More episodes” link in the bottom right section and pick the latest episode of the most recent season.
  8. Fast forward through the most recent episode until you reach the last minute or so, then let it play to the end, but DON’T let it launch the “Up Next” TV show, or it will appear in “Continue Watching.”

If you successfully beat the clock on the “Up Next” game, your last watched TV show or movie gets deleted from the “Continue Watching” queue. If you miss it, then whatever Peacock chose to play next becomes a lovely new entry in your “Continue Watching” list. Game on, and good luck!

How to Remove Shows and Movies From Continue Watching in Peacock on a Firestick

Removing videos from your Peacock “Continue Watching” list using a Fire TV Stick or Cube is the same as it is for a browser. Your only option is to skip and play the end. Here’s how to do it.

  1. Find the movie and “fast-forward” to the last minute or so.
  2. Let the last minute or two of the movie play through, but DON’T let Peacock start playing the “Up Next” content, or it will get stored in your “Continue Watching” queue. When the movie is finished, it gets removed from Continue Watching.

You can use the same steps to remove a TV show, but ensure you play the last episode of the last season issued. Keep in mind that these steps won’t work for ongoing TV shows. Every time a new episode comes out, the content will return to the Continue Watching section.
