Ad-supported video streaming service IMDb Freedive has rebranded to IMDb TV and announced plans to launch in Europe later this year.

The Amazon-owned film and TV service also said that it will triple its content selection, bringing thousands of new titles to the free-to-view service in the coming months.

New deals with studios like Warner Bros., Sony Pictures Entertainment and MGM Studios will make films like La La Land and Captain Fantastic available on IMDb TV.

The service, which is currently only available in the US, also already offers a range of TV series, including Kitchen Nightmares, Duck Dynasty and The Bachelor, and films such as Drive, Donnie Darko and Dances with Wolves.

“With IMDb TV, viewers have discovered TV the way it ought to be – a free collection of premium TV shows and movies available anytime,” said Mark Eamer, Vice President of IMDb TV.

“We deliver a top-quality discovery experience that makes it easy to be entertained. With more titles than ever before coming to IMDb TV and our upcoming European expansion later this year, we’re excited for customers to tune in and enjoy all that IMDb TV has to offer, all at no cost.”

IMDb TV content is available in the US via the IMDb TV website and on Fire TV Devices. Marc Whitten, Vice-President of Fire TV said: “Our Fire TV customers are always looking for compelling content at a great value. In fact, usage of free, ad-supported apps has increased by over 300% in the last year.

“IMDb TV brings some of the best free content into the living room and we’re excited that our US customers now have access to even more free TV shows and movies through the app and that customers in Europe can soon enjoy this great service on the biggest screen in their home.”
