The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) should smack themselves in the head harder than the people who should have just had a V8. The Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) subsidiary has finally decided to take connect videos to their database of actors, actress, movies, and TV shows.
“IMDb’s mission has always been to be the world’s most comprehensive, user-friendly destination for all movie, TV and celebrity-related information, products and services,” stated Col Needham, founder and managing director of IMDb.com. “We’re excited to offer our users a simple online experience to watch
full-length movies and TV episodes for free. Our goal is to show our users every movie and TV show on the Internet for free on IMDb.com.”
IMDb will have shows like 24, Big Brother, CSI, Family Guy, Heroes, House M.D., The Office, 30 Rock, Chuck, Life, Lipstick Jungle, and The Simpsons. These videos are provided by CBS, Hulu, and Sony. Over 500 indie filmmakers are also providing content. The videos are all available on the homepage.
IMDb launched in October 1990. Amazon.com bought IMDb in 1998. IMDb has 57 million visitors per month and 17 million registered.
