Here's an updated list of TV series and when they'll be available on IMDb TV.

IMDb TV Lineup

March 1: Lie to Me, Private Practice, Revenge

April: Ally McBeal

May 1: Lost

June 1: Malcolm in the Middle

Additional Programming on IMDb TV

Joining the aforementioned titles are Army Wives, Boston Legal, Graceland, L.A. Law, Legends, Roswell, St. Elsewhere, Terra Nova, Ugly Betty, The Unit, and Witches of East End.

Ad-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) services like (Disney-owned) Hulu remained the establishment for years, but greater competition surfaced adopting the same model for their content. Existing services like Tubi and Viacom's Pluto TV already carved their own corner of the marketplace. Joining them in a few months is NBC Universal's Peacock, which will include sequel updates to original programming to popular IPs like Punky Brewster and Saved by the Bell.
