IMDb announces Freedive, a free video streaming service with ads

IMDb has announced that it is launching a new video streaming service in the US called Freedive. The major draw of this service is that it will be free of cost and will be ad-supported.

While IMDb previously had some amount of video content in the form of short-form original series, trailers and interviews, this service will be offering full-length movies and television shows.

Of the list of content currently available, IMDb highlighted TV shows such as Fringe, Heroes, The Bachelor, and Without a Trace as well as Hollywood movies like Awakenings, Foxcatcher, Memento, Monster, Run Lola Run, The Illusionist, The Last Samurai, and True Romance. IMDb didn’t give an exact number of movies or tv show number but it’s likely not a lot at this stage.

The service will be available via the desktop website as well as Amazon Fire TV devices. It will eventually be available through the IMDb mobile apps as well. As mentioned previously, the service will only be available in the United States.
