IMDb, the US-based Amazon’s film and series database website, has announced that it will create a broadcast service called Freedive.
The broadcast service will be available to Amazon’s Fire TV customers in the US, and users will be able to watch Freedive content for free without any subscription.
Amazon said that as long as the platform remains on track, users will not be charged any fees, the platform will be financed only with ads, and there will be no ‘premium’ or similar subscription system.
The Illusionist, The Last Samurai, Memento, True Romance and Awakenings will soon be added to the platform.
IMDb CEO made the following comments: “With IMDb Freedive users can watch all the movies and television shows on IMDb and Amazon Fire TV free of charge. According to customer reviews, IMDb will develop Freedive and IMDb mobile applications in the future.”
Service is currently only available to users in America. No explanation has been made about when it will be opened to other countries.
