The Internet Movie Database, better known as IMDb, has put itself in play in the world of streaming services, and, it's free.

IMDb, which started as a repository for Hollywood credits, has morphed into an entertainment destination in its own right, and it has been a draw for advertisers, which can run video ads that takeover the homepage.

In August previous year, a rumor made the rounds that Amazon was planning to launch a free and ad-supported video streaming service aimed at Fire TV device owners. There are already many players like Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Disney, YouTube and our own local ShowMax who are all offering loads of content for viewers to stream, but now you can also add IMDb to that list as well. All in all the service offers around 29 television shows and 130 movies. More on the IMDb streaming service below. Per Variety, "titles licensed for Freedive come from studios and networks including CBS, NBCUniversal Television, Sony Pictures Entertainment/Columbia Pictures, Newmarket Films, Warner Bros".

IMDb Freedive is accessible via the IMDb website and Amazon Fire TV devices, and will feature full seasons of TV shows in addition to movies. That said, Freedive is a bit different from current streaming sites insofar that it's completely free and, in turn, ad-supported. IMDb also plans to make it available on mobile devices via the IMDb app.

IMDb Freedive is available beginning today at http://www.imdb.com/freedive, on IMDb's website via laptop or personal computer and on Fire TV devices.

To date, IMDb has produced short-form original series, such as "The IMDb Show", "Casting Calls" and "No Small Parts", as well as trailers and celebrity interviews.
