Amazon's IMDb Launches Free Movie and TV Streaming Service

IMDB Freedive

Among the titles now available are seasons of Fringe, Heroes, The Bachelor and Gilligan's Island.

Variety is reporting on Thursday that Amazon is launching a brand new ad-support video-on-demand service called "Freedive". Users can watch on IMDb's website or Amazon Fire TV devices, with the offering to be available on more platforms in the near future.

Amazon-owned IMDb launched a new movie streaming platform today called Freedive, and it's basically Prime Video Lite.

No, Samsung isn’t pre-installing Facebook on your phone
It is a problem with nearly all phone companies, as they pre-install third-party apps that can not be removed by users. Users can't delete these (except by hacking into their devices), and they can instead only be disabled and hidden.

Price, specs and features
In addition, the Redmi Note 7 features a rear-mounted fingerprint reader and an infrared sensor for controlling appliances. To inspire greater confidence, the Redmi Note 7 is now covered by an 18-month warranty instead of the usual 12 months.

Donald Trump will cancel planned Davos trip if shutdown continues
China and the United States have agreed to a 90-day pause in implementing tariffs in order to hammer out a trade deal. Trump walked out of a White House meeting with congressional leaders on Wednesday, calling it a "waste of time".

The service offers Hollywood movie titles like Awakenings, Foxcatcher, Memento, Monster, Run Lola Run, The Illusionist, The Last Samurai, and True Romanceand TV shows like Fringe, Heroes, The Bachelor and Without a Trace. (There are multiple categories on the service, including drama, comedies, horror, action, family, and so on.) The streaming service also boasts of a few IMDb original series' that take a look at the movie and TV industry. Freedive represents a bigger push to monetize video content with full-length movies and hit TV shows.

I gave IMDb Freedive a little bit of a spin, and my early impressions are largely positive. IMDb believes it can capture share in the market because its has millions of visitors who are actively interested in entertainment. "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". The company said it will be continually adding new titles.

IMDb claims it has 250 million unique visitors a month looking up information about more than five million movies and shows.
