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.”
Freedive is only available in the U.S. at the moment and it’s unclear if there are any plans to launch internationally.
