If paying for Amazon Prime Video is beyond your budget, we have wonderful news for you: IMDb TV, an ad-supported streaming service, has now launched in the UK through the Prime Video app, with a standalone app coming soon.
IMDb TV has long been available in America, providing subscribers access to a wide selection of shows and movies for free – including its own original programming.
The UK version is now available, with a wealth of fantastic material.
The excellent sitcom Community is available on the service, as well as Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, Babylon 5, Person of Interest, Dawson’s Creek, and The A-Team. It’s a veritable grab bag of goodies.
Movies included are Pulp Fiction, Saturday Night Fever, Meet the Parents, the two Kill Bill films, and Chinatown.
There’s also a lot for movie fans to enjoy, and given how expensive streaming services are in terms of both their individual prices and the number of them entering the market, we welcome the choice.
Original films are also available, including Luke Bryan: My Dirt Road Recovery, Moment of Truth, and Top Class: The Life and Times of the Sierra Canyon Trailblazers, which have all been released today.
How to Use IMDb TV in the United Kingdom
The Amazon Prime Video app is required to watch IMDb TV on a compatible device.
The software is widely accessible across smart TVs, Android devices, iOS devices, games consoles, and Amazon’s own fire products, so it shouldn’t be difficult to get your hands on it.
On the Prime Video homepage, look for the row labeled ‘IMDb TV – Popular Movies and TV – free with ads.’ You don’t need a Prime Video subscription to watch this material – and it’ll be identified by the IMDb TV logo as well as a little label that says ‘ads,’ where films and TV programs usually say ‘Prime.’
With a web browser, go to the site and basically enter your email address and password.
For example, if you’re using Chrome, you may just click in the Chrome window’s address bar, type in your email address, and hit Enter to access it (assuming it’s not already blocked for security reasons).
