So how can you start watching IMDb TV? Here’s a quick breakdown.

How to watch IMDb TV

First, IMDb TV is only available for streamers in the U.S., including U.S. territories. However, for those interested in IMDb TV outside of the U.S., it is possible to access it through a VPN. 

ExpressVPN is one of the easiest and affordable ways to watch what you want from anywhere you want to watch it. Plus it'll help keep your network traffic away from any prying eyes on public networks.

While IMDb TV is free, an IMDb account is necessary (also free) to begin watching content. Once logged in, users can stream available titles from the IMDb app via the IMDb TV page. It can also be accessed through the IMDb TV app for Amazon Fire TV and Roku, from a laptop or personal computer or on the IMDb TV channel on Amazon Prime Video.

In the event that there are any playback issues, it may be necessary to download the latest version of the IMDb app; IMDb TV is available on iOS app versions 9.13 and higher and Android versions 8.0 and higher. If issues persist, it is best to contact IMDb’s customer service team.
