If imdb partners with like netflix, hula and others we could click on the link find out all the informstion full cast and crew peoples comments . the sight could also show which streaming movie companies have your movie you want to watch. Think of any movie you want to watch whenever, because they were all linked together.

LSR: IMDb already does partner with Hulu. Many of the films and videos that are available to watch on IMDb are made available because of Hulu.

(And I don't know this for sure, but my guess would be that the partnership with Hulu is exclusive and would prevent IMDb from partnering with Netflix as well.)

Who cares? If they want to get more traffic, they'd be smart to at least list, if not link, where their informational movie site (with everything BUT where to watch except on Amazon, even then, they're not always even available on Amazon to stream). It isn't going to stop or start Prime memberships of any significance. I have Prime for the retail merchandise & shipping mainly anyway. The "free" streaming was just a bonus. I'm not cancelling my Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix or YouTube accounts regardless. Is there a site anyone knows of that does thorough, accurate & up-to-date listings, comprehensive of most major streaming services? Preferably in an app? I'd pay for an app that does it, even to Amazon, if it was sold through their app store. I'd pay for the IMDB app if it linked all of the listings. I've yet to find one that meets the criteria, so since I'm a frequent & long-time user of IMDB, it would be a very attractive addition, right on the IMDB mobile site. It's inevitable I'll find the movie eventually, but it turns me off to IMDB. Not that I'm going too stop utilizing it, but it sure would make Amazon customers happier, imo. I thought Bezos was all about streamlining & efficient service for his empire. This is nothing compared to Amazon's other ADventures!

I couldn't agree more

has anyone tried Movist? Id love to find 1 app that allows you to link all services and play directly from there. Simple

Yeah, I think the 'makers' want to keep this in-house because I haven't seen any response from IMDb (or Amazon) that addresses this. L

Also note that IMDb is owned by Amazon, and they do offer some streaming, as well as selling a lot of DVDs. They will not want to partner with sites that are in direct competition.
And YouTube is owned by Google, who owns also Google Music, but provides links to iTunes etc. Competition is competition, but such partnership should be profitable for both sides and can prove maturity of platform.
