Facebook watch tv shows

Facebook Watch – Facebook's stab at making TV-quality video content – is now available to all Facebook users in the US. The service was announced last month, and started rolling out gradually before reaching everyone in the US.

It's available via Facebook on mobile, desktop and Facebook TV platforms.

Facebook is yet to announce when it will land in the UK.

When users in the US open Facebook, they'll see a new Watch tab at the top of the screen. This is home to hundreds of original content commissions, from short pranks to clickbait fodder. However, it's also home to some more thought-provoking content, like short films and documentaries.

Facebook will soon open up Watch to all content creators to make shows for, and not just a handful. Hopefully we'll then see the quality and quantity improve.
