Is there a way to clear the list of recently watched movies on Netflix?
There is no way to do this currently.
I was trying to find an official statement about it, which I'm pretty sure exists since I remember reading about it a while ago, but it seems that the Netflix help has changed and it's hard to find what you are looking for.
You can clear the view history from netflix now. This article worked for me.
You can remove a film by running it to the end, by dubbing it when it finishes, wait to see “rate me” and the picture of the film and then press the backspace key—this should delete it.
