IMDb Freedive free video streaming service launches for Fire TV

As far back as August, we reported that Amazon and IMDb were teaming up to launch a new ad-supported streaming service for Fire TV devices in 2019, offering free access to a huge number of movies and TV shows. There's actually quite a bit of content on there, and the Amazon Prime Video app already is pointing folks toward the ad-supported service. Fringe, Heroes, Without a Trace, and The Bachelor make up some of Freedive's current television offerings.

Yes, IMDb, that site that you go to when you want to look up details on pretty much every movie ever made is now looking to also offer a streaming service of their own.

Amazon has been a player in streaming video for years through its Prime Video service, which started as a perk for subscribers of the online retailer's annual Prime shipping service.

I gave IMDb Freedive a little bit of a spin, and my early impressions are largely positive. 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 baby's father, alleged that staff at the community health centre in Jaisalmer's Ramgarh didn't inform him about the botch-up. The family came to know about it after they were informed by the doctors in Jodhpur, who surgically removed the baby's head.

IMDb Freedive also includes a feature X-RAY, powered by IMDb search that brings information about the cast, music, crew, etc. Presently, Freedive is only available for the U.S customers. The company said it will be continually adding new titles.

IMDb Freedive is available beginning today at http://www.imdb.com/freedive, on IMDb's website via laptop or personal computer and on Fire TV devices.

Amazon, which acquired IMDb in 1998, claims the site has more than 250 million unique monthly users worldwide.
