Amazon-owned Movie and TV review site, IMDb is launching its own free-to-view streaming video channel.

Freedive will be available in the United States across laptop or personal computer and Amazon Fire TV devices.

The advertising-supported channel won’t be showing the latest content. A statement from IMDB mentions series Fringe, Heroes, The Bachelor and Without a Trace as well as movie titlesAwakenings, Foxcatcher, Memento, Monster, Run Lola Run, The Illusionist and The Last Samurai.

“Customers already rely on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch,” said Col Needham, Founder and CEO of IMDb. “With the launch of IMDb Freedive, they can now also watch full-length movies and TV shows on IMDb and all Amazon Fire TV devices for free. We will continue to enhance IMDb Freedive based on customer feedback and will soon make it available more widely, including on IMDb’s leading mobile apps.”

Freedive will take advantage of X-Ray, the Amazon video feature, which allows users to call up actor bios and background information from IMDb directly onscreen.
