Between Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and a handful of other streaming services, there are plenty of ways to find titles to stream on movie night. If you still struggle with endlessly scrolling and never finding something to watch, however, there’s yet another streaming service to add to your list. And the best thing about it? It’s completely free!
The new service, called Freedive, is available through IMDb and can be streamed via computer or on Amazon Fire TV devices. The offerings include a whole lot of movies, as well as some television shows like “The Bachelor.”
Because the service is free, it is ad-supported, so you’ll be watching some commercials. But if you remember the days before you could fast-forward through them, you’ll know it’s worth it for some free binge-watching!
Here’s how it works: Visit the IMDb Freedive page on your computer or head to the Freedive channel on your Amazon Fire device. From there, you’ll see a list of featured titles you can stream for free. You’ll have to create an account to access the content, and then you can simply start watching.
The movies and shows are for streaming online and cannot be purchased or downloaded. There is also no option to pay a bit of money to skip the ads — you’ll just have to watch them.
Taking a quick look around Freedive, you’ll find top-rated movies like “Drive” and “Memento” along with TV series, from “Heroes” to “Gilligan’s Island.” There are also IMDb original shows and you can watch some award shows like the Golden Globes and the Emmys.
If you still can’t find anything to watch even with this newest addition to your streaming options, there is a trick on Netflix that can help you find titles you didn’t know were there. Netflix has a secret list of categories that is a bit more specific than your average drama and comedy. These categories include everything from deep sea horror movies to gangster movies and even quirky romance. You’ll also be able to find entertainment for specific ages and a few Disney categories.
