Amazon expands 'X-Ray' to most popular TV shows

Amazon expands 'X-Ray' to most popular TV shows
When Amazon released its Kindle Fire HD lineup, the company also introduced a few new features including "X-Ray for Movies," which integrates IMDB into any movie you may be watching on the tablets.

X-Ray for Movies allowed you to discover names of actors that are on the screen, and see their most popular movies/TV appearances right from within the playback area.



Today, the company has expanded the service to TV "bringing the seamless, fully-integrated X-Ray experience to TV shows."

"X-Ray has been one of the most loved features on Kindle Fire HD since it launched last September," said Peter Larsen, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. "For people who are passionate about movies and TV, there is no better way to watch than on Kindle Fire HD, which combines an exceptional viewing experience with the unbelievable power of the over 100 million pieces of data in IMDb's catalog."

"For over 20 years we have been cultivating a vast database of movie, TV and celebrity content," said Col Needham, IMDb Founder and CEO. "Can't remember where you've seen the actor playing Lord Grantham in Downton Abbey? No problem. Simply tap on the screen and you'll see a full filmography, where you'll realize that Hugh Bonneville was also in Notting Hill. Our vision is to make X-Ray available on every movie and TV show--we're excited to make another big step forward today, and we are working hard to add X-Ray to more TV shows and movies in the future."
