Amazon Launches Free Streaming Service ‘IMDb Freedive’

"Customers already rely on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch", said Col Needham, Founder and CEO of IMDb. Alternatively, you can view its content through the Freedive channel on Amazon Fire TV devices. If you keep scrolling down, you will find an IMDb Freedrive: Popular Movies and TV - Free with Ads section. There are already many players like Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Disney, YouTube and our own local ShowMax who are all offering loads of content for viewers to stream, but now you can also add IMDb to that list as well. But Freedive is a big clear sign of the two companies' relationship, using the combined power of Amazon's streaming technology and IMDb's audience of enthusiasts to kick-start what could be a very lucrative service. Presently, Freedive is only available for the U.S customers.
