IMDb announces launch of new free streaming service IMDb Freedive
IMDb is jumping into the ever expanding streaming world. The movie site has announced the launch of IMDb Freedive, a free streaming platform that allows users to watch TV shows such as Fringe, Heroes, The Bachelor and Without a Trace as well as films such as Awakenings, Foxcatcher, Memento, Monster, Run Lola Run, The Illusionist, The Last Samurai, True Romance, and many more. The best part is that this service is entirely free, and doesn’t even require a subscription, although the site will feature advertisements.
Users will be able to stream the aforementioned content via laptop or computer and on all Amazon TV devices. What’s more, customers can use an additional program called X-Ray, which, in true IMDb fashion, supplements the TV shows and films with trivia, information about the cast and crew, soundtracks and more.
“Customers already rely on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch,” said Col Needham, Founder and CEO of IMDb. “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. We will continue to enhance IMDb Freedive based on customer feedback and will soon make it available more widely, including on IMDb’s leading mobile apps.”
Users may jump into IMDb Freedive now at www.imdb.com/freedive, where they can also enjoy the site’s original series The IMDb Show, Casting Calls and No Small Parts.
