The Internet Movie Database, announced today that users can now watch over 6,000 full-length feature films and TV shows for free on their new video section.
Col Needham, the founder and managing director of IMDb.com, Inc. has announced:
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,”
“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.”
Whilst this is obviously a logical move for the site, I imagine rights issues will mean that UK viewers won’t be able to watch a lot of the content available to US users.
