e-commerce giant Amazon has launched its ad-supported video streaming service with around 130 movies and 29 TV series. The video-streaming service is called IMDB Freedive.
IMDb means Internet Movie Database. It is an online database of information related to films, television programs, home videos and video games, and internet streams, including cast, production crew and personnel biographies, plot summaries and fan reviews and ratings.
Online users already depend on IMDb to discover movies and TV shows and decide what to watch.
Amazon is all set to enhance IMDb Freedive based on user feedback and will improve the service more widely, besides looking to provide reliable Wi-Fi to weak broadband locations or where there is limited but mobile data are available through a wide-area mesh networking, including on IMDb’s leading mobile apps.
Our sources found out that Amazon applied for a patent requesting to build a mobile networking device which will be different from a mobile hotspot but will allow for peer-to-peer (P2P) connections across multiple sets of nodes.
The titles include popular TV series such as
- The Bachelor and Gilligan’s Island
And the film titles include movies like
- A Few Good Men and Monster, among others
The broadscasting service will also have original content from IMDB. With this novel video streaming both the entities have opportunity to make extra advertising revenue, which means they will become the direct competitors to digital ad space bosses Google and Facebook respectively.
