I have returned to netflix after a 1 year abscence.  In that time, Instant Queue has disappeared to be replaced by My List.  Unfortunately, My List is not appearing.  Some googling suggests that this can happen if you are using a different region to the one you registered in (I'm not) or if you are using some of the unblocking services.  Currently I am using hola, but I have also tried unblockus with no joy.

So, does anyone have My List visible, and if so, how are you accessing netflix?

I just scroll all the way to the bottom of the Netflix screen - my list is there.

Perhaps the list is tied to the region you saved then in.
Ie if you save some items while connected to the USA region, then switch to uk and save some items, does the the lust for each region appear when you toggle regions?

The list appears to be tied to your home region.  I only get it when I am logging in to NF Canada.  It's not there for UK or USA.  Not sure why it thinks my home region is Canada though.

I believe that is the case.

While Netflix catalogs have overlaps between regions (i.e. as evidenced by the likes of http://whatsnewonnetflix.tv/ 'Skyfall' is on 8 regions) the My Lists can't overlap because a) you aren't really meant to be switching regions with any fluidity (Hollywood/TVwood would throw a hissy-fit if Netflix were seen as 'making it too easy') b) presenting it and keeping it up to date (let alone dealing with the support questions) could be a nightmare.

Everyone just says "My List" isn't portable, I've never actually heard if someone has tried maintaining a US "My List" and a Canadian "My List" so it is worth a shot.

My list is separate per region, so I have to setup the list when I switch between regions. No biggie :-)
