Amazon’s free streaming service, IMDb TV, finally has its own dedicated app for iPhone, iPad and Android, and earlier this year it had already launched on other major platforms.
IMDb TV is a hub dedicated to free and advertised movies and series, it has its own originals produced by Amazon Studios. Previously, the user could find the IMDb TV content list in the main IMDb app, but no standalone streaming app existed for iOS and Android.
An Amazon spokesperson said the content is still available for streaming via IMDb, but IMDb’s new TV app is “designed for the streaming experience.”
IMDb TV’s list of content is very good, even though its originals have struggled to be as successful as the larger premium service titles. For the end user if you don’t mind the ads, there are a ton of great things to stream for free on the service, including documentaries, sci-fi titles, dramas and lots of TV to spend your time in the best possible way. Mad Men, How to Train Your Dragon, Schitt’s Creek and Lost are some examples that are available in the service.
In addition, following a recently announced deal with Universal, IMDb TV will also exclusively stream some live action and animation titles from the studio following their theatrical release and a brief paid premiere on Peacock.
The app has been making it available on most of their major streaming devices and some smartTVs, including Fire TV, Roku, Xbox, Android TV, devices Android TV OS, Latest LG Smart TVs, PlayStation 4, Chromecast with Google TV and Nvidia Shield. It is also available as a free channel in the Prime Video experience.
Note that, for now, this application is not yet available in Portugal or Brazil.
