    Both means "can not/do not see/watch."
    Depending on what subject word you put before the words, it will be applied to 1st/2nd/3rd person.

    1. Minai (見ない)=>Informal (the ~nai at the end makes a word informal)
    2. Mimasen (見ません)=>Formal (the ~masen at the end makes a word formal)

    The use of informal and formal in Japan/Japanese is very important so if you want to know more about it, I will tell you...

    Hope my answer was helpful. If you want to know more or are still confused, ask me! ^_^
