IMDB Adds Free Video to its Site

Amazon.com, which owns the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), is making free movies and other video content available on the IMDB Web site.

This is such a natural progression that many people have been wondering when Amazon would finally do it, according to an article on PaidContent.org.

News reports say that more than 6,000 full-length feature films and TV episodes will be offered free on IMDb.com’s video section. The content is said to include things like classic films like "Some Like It Hot" and more recent films such as "Bring It On," as well as recent episodes of popular TV shows like "30 Rock," "24," and "Heroes."

In addition, IMDB has said that the first episodes of new fall television shows like "Lipstick Jungle" and "30 Rock" will be available to view online before they first air on TV.
