IMDB is a new streaming service that is monetised similarly to the way Youtube is. Ads before, in the middle and after the content.
At the moment IMDB TV is only available in the United States at the moment which is why you’ll need a VPN in order to watch it.
According to Mark Eamer, vice president of IMDb TV, the service has half the ads of network TV. We don’t have an official release date, and we don’t know which countries will receive IMDb TV first. But we welcome this addition to the list of available streaming services in Europe!
VPN and streaming services
Since each company has a different set of movies and tv series for which it holds the rights in a given country, there will be some big differences in the availability and amount of content between different nations. This is where a VPN comes in handy. If you’re not satisfied with the content that IMDb TV offers your country, you can switch location. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy a greater number of shows and movies. It’s still not clear what is IMDb TV’s position on VPNs.
