Amazon launches new free movies and TV streaming channel through IMDB

"Customers already rely on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch", IMDb CEO Col Needham said in a statement.

Users can access IMDb's offerings through the website via laptop or personal computer and on Fire TV devices (Fire TV customers will see the new IMDb Freedive icon in the "Your Apps & Channels" row). The content is from the worldwide movie database, or IMDb, which Amazon owns.

Amazon-owned IMDb launched a new movie streaming platform today called Freedive, and it's basically Prime Video Lite for film buffs. Movies on the service include "Awakenings", "A Few Good Men", "Adaptation", "Drive", "Foxcatcher", "Gattaca", "Memento", "Monster", "Run Lola Run", "The Illusionist", "The Last Samurai", "True Romance" and Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris". The rumor wasn't made official at the time, but IMDb has laid the matter to rest today with its announcement of Freedive, a free video streaming service that can be accessed on Fire TV and computers. The site will also indicate on a film's page if it's available on Freedive.

The official IMDb Freedive website - which you visit by clicking here - says it is only available in the U.S. "at this time".

The catalog of available titles, which includes recent TV shows such as "The Bachelor" and "Duck Dynasty" and classics such as "Dallas" and "Gilligan's Island", will continue to evolve, IMDb said. Viewers simply need to create a free IMDb account to begin watching.
