IMDb Launches Online Subscription Service

Seattle-based Internet Movie Database (IMDb.com), Wednesday launched a pay-for premium subscription service geared for entertainment
industry professionals.


For a starting fee of $12.95 per month, users can access market research tools that enable them to track the popularity of the
movies and actors listed in the IMDb; become privy to box-office data; and track movie release dates and events, all from IMDbPro.com.


“Over the past five years, a growing segment of industry professionals, including directors, casting agents, producers, programming
executives and movie critics, have requested additional features to help them make better business and creative decisions,” said Col
Needham, IMDb.com founder. “In response to this overwhelming demand, we created IMDbPro.com, which features expanded information and
new technology to meet their specific needs.”
