  1. This complete lack of ability to easily & PERMANENTLY remove shows/movies from continue watching list aggravates me NO END! So much so that I’ll not be renewing my Peacock subscription when the current one expires! I mean, for crying out loud, even Roku, a completely FREE CHANNEL, has that option; very easy to find & use; 1 click & it’s done, completely done — new episodes DO NOT continue to appear in the continue watching list AFTER moving/series removed from Watch List!!! How hard can it be to make this happen for it’s subscribers?!?
