IMDb Launches Free Streaming Platform ‘Freedive’

Late previous year, YouTube started showing ad-supported movies, too. Right now, you can stream movies like Adaptation, Last Action Hero, Memento, and True Romance, as well as TV shows like Heroes, Fringe, Quantum Leap, and, should you be so inclined, The Bachelor.

Fire TV customers will see the new IMDb Freedive icon in the “Your Apps & Channels” row, making it easy to find free movies and TV shows. Operated as an Amazon subsidiary ever since, IMDb has just launched a streaming video service for Fire TV devices that is also available via the web, namely Freedive. The content is from the worldwide movie database, or IMDb, which Amazon owns. To get started, all you need to do is head over to Freedive, log in with your IMDb or Amazon account and that's it.

It will also include IMDb's original short-form series, which include "The IMDb Show" and "Casting Calls". Freedive was expected to be an answer of sorts to Roku's Roku Channel, which offers free content to Roku users.

IMDb said the service will soon be "available more widely, including on IMDb's leading mobile apps", but did not specify where it will be available. More on the IMDb streaming service below. IMDb has also said that you'll be able to access the service on mobile in the near future.

Freedive's arrival comes as somewhat of a surprise.

Freedive joins Amazon's other streaming-based solutions such as Prime Video which provides access to select TV shows for free (and without ads) to those with an existing Prime membership. The catalog will continue to evolve, with new titles added regularly.

On the IMDb desktop website all IMDb Freedive title pages will have an option to "Watch for Free on IMDb Freedive".
