I want to see a simple comparison chart of IMDb and IMDbPro. It's not on the website. Anyone know where I can view one?

Hi Don L,

I originally posted this summary a few months ago. It is a summary of what you can do with IMDb and IMDb Pro. I've included a comparison chart of IMDb and IMDbPro at the end, since you specifically requested it.

Note: I am an IMDb user, not and IMDb staff member. Although this information is based on IMDb help pages, this is not an official IMDb document.

Michelle,

Thank you for the acknowledgement. I wanted to have a chart like that one for a long time and decided to create it. I will update it to correct errors, add the information provided below and add information as IMDb and IMDbPro evolves.

I fully agree that the only way to truly appreciate the benefits of IMDbPro is to try it. The free 30 day trial is good way to try it. However, it is only available once per user account. I recommend that you do not sign up for the free trial until you have time to thoroughly check out IMDbPro.
