Amazon launches free streaming service IMDb TV on Android and iOS
Eight months after launch, Amazon's free ad-supported streaming service is finally coming to mobile devices, TechCrunch reports. The movie streaming service allows users to watch movies from a large library completely free, which includes TV shows like Fringe, Heroes, The Bachelor and Without a Trace.

Amazon added earlier this summer more video content to IMDb TV after it closed deals with Warner Bros., Sony Picture Entertainment and MGM Studios. Following the announcement, users got access to even more blockbusters like Jerry Maguire, A Knight's Take, The Neverending Story, and Zookeeper.

The latest deals with Paramount and Lionsgate allowed Amazon to further refresh its content database with movies like Silver Linings Playbook, Age of Adaline, In the Heart of the Sea and the TV show, The Middle.

Starting today, iOS and Android users will be able to watch these movies and TV shows on their smartphones without having to pay anything. The only requirement is to have the updated IMDb app installed on their phones.
