IMDB TV on firestick - Show used to be free with ads and now have to pay

When I first got my Amazon firestick a couple weeks ago, I downloaded IMDB TV app and it allowed me to watch season 12 of the Bachelorette free with ads. I could jump forward to any episode and it was free, plus ads. Not even payment options - which is fine, I'm obviously not going to pay for it and the ads are short. Now after I've watched 2 episodes, when I go to watch more the only option is to buy per episode or the whole season. What happened to streaming it free with ads???

I don't know of any streaming service that keeps a title permanently available. They only license them for a fixed amount of time. And since today is the first of the month, and a Tuesday...

This is strictly my observation, not an official response.

Was it after midnight in London? A lot of IMDb time stamps are based on GMT.

Nope, it was about 8 am eastern time 9/30...so only early afternoon there on Sept 30. And the day before I could advance to any other episode without paying - it was just with ads which was fine.
