IMDB Launches Free Movie and TV Streaming Service Called Freedive

By Kelvin Owens

IMDB has launched a free streaming service called  Freedive that features dozens of movies and TV shows. And while it doesn’t have new releases, the selection isn’t half bad, with movies like Drive, Adaptation, Gattaca, True Romance, Last Action Hero, Legends of the Fall, and Panic Room as well as TV shows like Fringe, Quantum Leap, Gilligan’s Island, Heroes, and The Bachelor.

Freedive, which is pitching itself as a subscription-free streaming service, is now available on PCs, laptops and Amazon Fire TV devices. Viewers with Fire TV devices will see the Freedive icon in the “Your Apps & Channels” row of their dashboard. On Fire TV, users can say, “Alexa, go to Freedive” to access Freedive’s catalog of movies and TV shows. IMDb says Freedive will eventually makes its way to the IMDb mobile app.

“Customers already rely on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch,” said Col Needham, IMDb CEO and founder, in the  January 10 announcement . “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.”

One cool thing about the service that sets it apart from others is that it each category displays the top-rated movies first. As IMDB notes, a lot of people use IMDB rankings to determine if a movie is good or not and it’s a great way to scroll through movies to see what you might enjoy.

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