In January, Amazon launched a free streaming service called Freedive. Amazon later renamed the service to IMDb TV. With IMDb TV you can get access to thousands of movies and TV episodes for free with ads from Amazon.

IMDb TV is more of a movie-focused service. When you scroll through the content library, you’ll find both classic films and more recent titles. Now that this free streaming is available on iOS and Android devices, you can watch content anytime, anywhere. While IMDb TV currently has on-demand content only, Amazon is reportedly planning to add live content in the future.

These are some of the categories you can choose from:

  • Recently Added Movies
  • Most Popular Movies
  • Popular TV Series
  • Top Rated Movies
  • IMDb Originals
  • TV Shows
  • Comedies
