Amazon IMDb TV Streaming Service Is Now on Android and iOS

The free, ad-supported program finally has its own official mobile apps

Amazon's ad-supported free streaming service, IMDb TV, has been available on web browsers and TV streaming devices for a bit, but also now has official mobile apps.

It's taken a little while, but now you can watch IMDb TV on your smartphone, thanks to Amazon's new Android and iOS apps. The service, which Variety points out, debuted back in 2019 as Freedive, launched the app to support streaming devices like Roku and Chromecast just this year.

Why the app wasn't also launched on mobile at that time isn't clear, but the important thing is it's here now.

IMDb TV functions as a free film and TV streaming service with ad support, claiming thousands of available titles in its regularly updated library. You can find popular shows like Madmen and Lost, or check out some Amazon originals. It's all free, so long as you don't mind seeing video ads.

The user response so far has been fairly positive, with overall very positive ratings for both apps. However, some users have noted that Amazon Prime members are not exempt from having to watch ads while streaming.

Several other users also have pointed out that, at least at the moment, there doesn't seem to be a proper search function—not ideal if you're looking for a specific show or movie.

It's likely that Amazon will hammer out these dents in the future, but in the meantime, you can still download the app, set up an account, and start streaming at no cost.
