IMDb – the Internet Movie Database – has announced the launch of IMDb Freedive in the US, a free streaming video channel available via laptop or personal computer and on all Amazon Fire TV devices.

IMDb Freedive, an ad-supported channel, enables viewers to watch hit TV shows including Fringe, Heroes, The Bachelor, Quantum Leap and Without a Trace as well as top Hollywood hits like Awakenings, Foxcatcher, Memento, Last Action Hero, Run Lola Run, The Illusionist, The Last Samurai, True Romance and more without purchasing a subscription.

Customers can dive even deeper into the titles they are watching on IMDb Freedive by using X-Ray, which is powered by the authoritative information on IMDb about cast, crew, trivia, soundtracks and more. Popular IMDb original video series, including The IMDb Show, Casting Calls and No Small Parts, are available to stream on IMDb Freedive now.

“Customers already rely on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch,” said Col Needham, Founder and CEO of IMDb. “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.”
