How to Clear Your Instant Queue in Netflix

by Ruri Ranbe

Netflix subscribers can view some TV shows and movies through online video streaming. Just as subscribers can add rental videos to the DVD Queue, subscribers can also add instant-watch videos to the Instant Queue. If you've already seen the videos in your Instant Queue, or if you change your mind about what videos you want to stream instantly, you can clear out the queue and start over.

Sign in to Netflix. Select "Your Queue" from the menu bar. Click the "Instant" tab to view the movies or TV shows saved to your Instant Queue.

Click the "X" button under "Remove" to delete a movie or show from the queue. Repeat the process for each title saved to your Instant Queue.

Click "Update Instant Queue" after removing all the titles.


  • You cannot remove titles from the "Recently Watched" portion of the Instant Queue.
