The Internet Movie Database, aka, IMDB just launched their own streaming service! And guess what, it’s free!
The new streaming service is called Freedive. It doesn’t have new releases, but the selection isn’t half bad, with movies like Drive, Adaptation, Gattaca, True Romance, Last Action Hero, Legends of the Fall, and Panic Room as well as TV shows like Fringe, Quantum Leap, Gilligan’s Island, Heroes, and The Bachelor.
Freedive viewers can watch movies and TV shows on their computer desktop or through Amazon devices like the Fire TV, though the content is all ad-supported. IMDB, which started as a fan site but has been owned by Amazon since 1998, says that a mobile app is launching soon.
“Customers already rely on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch,” Col Needham, founder and CEO of IMDB said in a statement. “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.”
