The irony, though, is that the number of streaming services to choose from keeps on getting larger, essentially making the media landscape as confusing and pricey as the cable packages of old. IMDb is a wholly owned subsidiary of Amazon.

Did you know we have a YouTube Channel? In a word, no.

The Freedive service is available on the IMDb website via computer and on all Amazon Fire TV devices. Customers don't need a subscription to enjoy Freedive content, but they do need either a Fire TV device or a computer to access the content through IMDb's website.

The service offers Hollywood movie titles like Awakenings, Foxcatcher, Memento, Monster, Run Lola Run, The Illusionist, The Last Samurai, and True Romanceand TV shows like Fringe, Heroes, The Bachelor and Without a Trace.

Users will also be able to dive deeper on titles they are watching with the use of X-Ray, which provides information about cast, crew, trivia, soundtracks and more, according to a news release.

West Ham identify Callum Wilson as Marko Arnautovic replacement
It is understood West Ham will not consider selling him this month because of the difficulties they may face in replacing him. West Ham host Arsenal on Saturday and Pellegrini has no qualms about playing Arnautovic despite the speculation.

The company said its existing video content - trailers, interviews, and original short series - will be integrated into the new service.

"Customers already rely on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch", IMDb CEO Col Needham said in a statement.

Launching in the US, Freedive will let audiences watch movies and TV shows on their laptop as well as on mobile and Amazon Fire devices. Presently, Freedive is only available for the U.S customers.

Amazon-owned IMDb launched a new movie streaming platform today called Freedive, and it's basically Prime Video Lite. These new free ad-supported TV shows and movies are hidden far down the Amazon Roku Channel.
