IMDB TV FREE

Why do I have to log into AMAZON now to view IMDB 'free' T.V. and movies.

I use to be able to log into my IMDB and choose a show and watch it FREE.

Now I have to log into AMAZON???

Can I still watch IMDB 'free' shows w/o loggining into AMazon?

What if I don't have an AMAZON account....

this is just one more way for AMAZON to monetize and connect to personal information 

from log-ins :(

For a while now I have been enjoying watching shows freely through the Imb app.
However, now in the 'video' tab when I tap on a show I would like to watch I get an error message : "network error/ frame load interrupted/ ok" and then blank screen. When I search for a show I used to be able to watch, like Law & Order UK, I tap on the big pink button that says "watch free on ImbTv" and it takes me to an Amazon sign in page. So, I dutifully sign in only to find it won't let me watch any episodes. What gives? What has changed? And what can I do to get it back? 

Note: This comment was created from a merged conversation originally titled No longer able to "watch fee on imb"!?!?

Thanks for your feedback. At this time, it is required to log in with Amazon.com credentials in order to access and stream IMDb TV content. Note - Prime is not required and you are welcome to create a free Amazon.com account if you do not already have an account.
