Because we don’t have enough streaming service apps to juggle in our lives, IMDb has now joined the fray with their new free offering called Freedive where you can watch even more movies and TV shows.
“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.”
IMDb Freedive, an ad-supported channel, offers TV shows like Fringe, Quantum Leap, Heroes, Duck Dynasty, The Bachelor and Without a Trace, as well as movies like Awakenings, Foxcatcher, Monster, Drive, Panic Room, and True Romance, and IMDb Originals like Casting Calls and No Small Parts without purchasing a subscription.
IMDb Freedive is available on IMDb’s website and, shocker, on Fire TV devices (IMDb is owned by Amazon and will utilize its X-Ray feature). Fire TV customers will see the new IMDb Freedive icon in the “Your Apps & Channels” row or can just say “Alexa, go to Freedive” to access the service.
The one thing that might make Freedive different, and perhaps better, than some of your other free movie and TV show streaming services is the fact that it will list the titles rated highest on IMDb first in each category.
Also, if you use IMDb’s app or visit their website, they will now indicate on a title’s page if it’s available for free on Freedive.
So, is it worth a look? I think it probably is, just for The Illusionist alone.
