Are you a fan of the ABC hit shows “LOST,” “Ally McBeal,” “Malcolm in the Middle,” or “Desparate Housewives”? Those Disney shows and more will soon be streaming on Amazon’s IMDb TV. The streaming service will be ad-supported, meaning if you have access to a ROKU or other Smart TV device, you can watch them for free.
The entire list of shows coming to or currently streaming on IMDb TV is:
- Boston Legal
- Desperate Housewives
- The Glades
- L.A. Law
- Lie to Me
- Malcolm in the Middle
- My So-Called Life
- Private Practice
- St. Elsewhere
- Terra Nova
- Ugly Betty
- The Unit
- White Collar
- Witches of East End
Terms of the deal between Amazon and Disney’s Direct to Consumer division were not immediately available. Disney’s roster of shows expanded greatly when it purchased 20th Century Fox.
The 10th anniversary of LOST is June 1st this year and the show’s first season will go live in May, so you can celebrate with a marathon show watching session.
If you’re a subscriber to Hulu, majority owned by Disney, and are wondering what will happen to these shows, don’t worry, with the exception of “My So-Called Life,” they’ll continue to stream ad-free on Hulu.
The whole business of OTT streaming services is still relatively young, A lot of money can be made with streaming syndication rights, but it some services are trying to keep a free with ads option available. We like to see that.
