IMDb TV streaming app finally unveiled on iOS and Android mobile devices, after more than two and a half years IMDb debuted its free, ad-supported streaming service.
IMDb TV is a specialized portal for free, ad-supported movies and series, as well as Amazon Studios’ own devoted originals. Previously, IMDb TV’s programming was only available through the main IMDb app, and there was no dedicated streaming app for iOS or Android.
Amazon revealed some information during their advertising presentation. “This summer, we’re also debuting on mobile – iOS and Android – so get your smartphone out,” stated IMDb TV Co-head of Content & Programming Ryan Pirozzi.
