Amazon's IMDb Launches Free Movie and TV Streaming Service

11 January 2019

The irony, though, is that the number of streaming services to choose from keeps on getting larger, essentially making the media landscape as confusing and pricey as the cable packages of old.

IMDb Freedive also taps into Amazon's X-Ray feature, which lets viewers access information pulled from IMDb about a title's cast, crew, trivia, soundtracks and more. In a word, no.

Freedive is available through your computer or Amazon Fire TV device.

The Amazon-owned movie database site has launched IMDb Freedive (imdb.com/freedive), a free streaming video channel available in the U.S. IMDb declined to say how many titles are initially available; the site now lists over 130 movies and 29 TV shows to stream for free.

Samsung unveils expanded Bixby, more notebooks, more AI
Just 1 million Galaxy foldable phones will be released into markets starting in Korea and then in the US, China and Europe. As for what improvements the Galaxy S10 might offer, Samsung is expected to embrace the new trend of hole-punch displays .

Unlike streaming services like Netflix and Prime Video, IMDb Freedive does not require a subscription, and is instead supported by ads, according to a press release.

IMDb Freedive is available beginning today at www.imdb.com/freedive, on IMDb's website via laptop or personal computer and on Fire TV devices.

Amazon is competing with YouTube, Facebook, Hulu, Roku and even Walmart, which owns Vudu, in the ad-supported video space, a category that is increasingly attractive for brands that can't count on TV as the next-generation of viewers migrates online.

Films featured at the top of the home page on Thursday included "Memento", "True Romance", "Awakenings", "The Last Samurai" and others. "With the launch of IMDb Freedive, they can now also watch full-length movies and TV shows on IMDb and all Amazon Fire TV devices for free". Freedive represents a bigger push to monetize video content with full-length movies and hit TV shows.
