Android TV / Google TV gain IMDb TV, Amazon Music, and Apple TV apps

Google’s streaming platform has gained a few notable apps during the last week. An Amazon Music app is now available on multiple Android TV / Google TV devices, including the NVIDIA Shield TV and the 2020 Google Chromecast. IMDb TV and Apple TV apps have also recently arrived but, unfortunately, those apps are only available on a very limited set of devices. The new Chromecast with Google TV is compatible with both apps, but popular Android TV devices, like the Shield TV, are not compatible yet. Google did say that the Apple TV app would be coming to “more devices powered by Android TV OS in the future” so the app is not going to be exclusive to the Chromecast. There’s no word on whether IMDb TV will be available on more devices in the future.

IMDb TV app appears to be coming to Android TV / Google TV devices

Amazon’s IMDb TV streaming service, which offers free ad-supported movies and TV shows, appears to finally be heading to Android TV and Google TV devices. A new listing in the Google Play Store for an IMDb TV app has appeared with screenshots that indicate the app is made for streaming media players. The new IMDb TV app isn’t currently configured as compatible with any devices yet, so it can’t be installed yet. IMDb TV arrived on Roku devices for the first time a few days ago, so it makes sense that it’s being made available on other streaming platforms as well.

Using the Amazon-owned Internet Movie Database for branding, the service is called IMDb Freedive and it’s available on most devices that can already stream Prime Video. On Amazon Fire TV devices, you should see a new Freedive icon at the front of your “Apps & Channels” row on the home screen. If not, you can launch the free service by saying “Alexa, go to Freedive” into your voice remote, paired Echo device, or hands-free Fire TV Cube. Read more ›
