It’s happy news for the people residing in the US as IMDb, the website and TV company owned by Amazon, has announced to launch a video channel with free streaming. The free services will be available to the Amazon Fire Stick TV gadgets apart from its website. The unique aspect of this service is that it won’t need any subscription like Prime Video and Netflix. In fact, IMDbFreedive will be backed by advertisements. It will also include a handful of alluring contents like Heroes, The Bachelor, Awakenings, The Illusionist, and others that were liked and embraced by a major portion of the people.
To give a tight competition to IMDbFreedive, Google Chromecast and Roku have braced its services. These two are the primary rivals of Amazon Fire TV and allow the clients to stream the contents in their television. The shares of Roku have spiked by 25% this week after declaring a steep rise in the active users. Apple has also announced to club the iTunes services with Samsung TV.
The latest trend of live streaming is overwhelming the modern world as more and more providers are delving into the niche. Now, Disney has also declared to incorporate their services in line with the other streaming services. AT&T and Apple are also in the queue to launch their own streaming services with original content that will be powered by the motivational personalities like Oprah Winfrey and others. This year will be phenomenal for the streaming services with the companies coming up with unique features. However, IMDb is expecting its service to soar above the others as this will have a model based on the advertisements. Since this will not demand a mandatory subscription from the customers, more people will contribute to expanding the consumer base, making it a success.
