Amazon’s Free Streaming Service Renamed IMDb TV, Triples Amount of Content
Service is expected to expand to Europe later this year
In January, Amazon launched their free streaming service called IMDb Freedive which is similar to The Roku Channel and Tubi. Starting today, the company has renamed the service, IMDb TV, and tripled it’s content selection through new deals with Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and MGM. The ad-supported service offers free TV shows and movies with “half the ads of network TV”, according to Amazon.
Starting July 1st, you can stream Academy Award-nominated films like Captain Fantastic and La La Land, as well as Draft Day, Sense and Sensibility, and A Knight’s Tale. In addition, you can stream TV series like Fringe and Heroes, in addition to reality shows like Kitchen Nightmares, Duck Dynasty, and The Bachelor.
“Our Fire TV customers are always looking for compelling content at a great value. In fact, usage of free, ad-supported apps has increased by over 300 percent in the last year,” said Marc Whitten, Vice President of Fire TV.
IMDb TV is available on the IMDb website, or as part of the Prime Video app on Roku, Apple TV, iOS, and Android. You can also access IMDb TV from the Your Apps & Channels row on Amazon Fire TV devices.
