Amazon has released the IMDb TV app on iPhone and iPad to offer free video streaming with ads. The service is also available on Android. Launched in 2019, IMDb TV offers a vast library of Amazon original and third-party movies and TV shows like “Moment of Truth”, “Leverage: Redemption”, “Mad Men”, Chicago Fire” and others. Although supported by ads, the service claims it still runs fewer ads than traditional TV broadcasts.
At a time when the video streaming industry is dominated by subscription-based services like Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+, IMDb TV is giving users on a budget an opportunity to enjoy free content at the price of a few advertisements.
