IMDb Adds Streaming Docs From SnagFilms

More than 700 titles will be available free on film and director pages.

In good news for reality fans, documentary site SnagFilms will make a large part of its library available for free on IMDb.

Beginning today, more than 700 SnagFilm titles will be made available for instant streaming on IMDb’s film or director pages on IMDb. Eventually, access to the films will be even more deeply integrated into the site, including embedded links on pages for producers and other participants in the documentary film industry.
 
IMDb’s goal, said Fred Kramer, head of video licensing for the site, is “a play button on every page. We want our users to be able to watch or access every movie and TV show directly from an IMDb page.”
 
This marks SnagFilms third major partnership. Their films are already on AOL’s Moviefone and Hulu.

 

“SnagFilms is dedicated to offering great documentary films to the online audience,” said Rick Allen CEO of SnagFilms. “Offering free, streaming access to those film fans who come to IMDb pages searching for a particular film gives new meaning to on-demand viewing and is one of the many reasons we are so excited for this arrangement.”
