What is Facebook Watch
Facebook Watch is Facebook’s video-on-demand (VOD) platform where Facebook users can watch popular videos; users create video content and Facebook Originals. Facebook Watch doesn’t require a subscription fee, but videos have commercial breaks. Unlike other VOD platforms like Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube, you don’t need a special app to watch videos and shows on Facebook Watch.
While it’s hard to get excited over yet another video platform on the web, Facebook Watch is definitely worth a look for its Facebook Watch Originals. These are episodic TV shows with high production value and big named stars.
The platform has shows like Red Table Talk starring Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith, and her mom Adrienne Banfield-Norris. The three sit down at a red table in the Smith family home and hash out hot-button topics like transracial adoption, polyamorous relationships, white privilege, and more. The show runs about a half-hour an episode often features a guest. For example, Chelsea Handler came to the table for the episode on white privilege.
If RTT doesn’t pique your interest, maybe you would enjoy Limetown starring Jessica Biel, Stanley Tucci, and Marlee Matlin. This sci-fi mystery follows a public radio reporter as she investigates the mysterious disappearance of 300 people at a neurological research facility in Tennessee.
Don’t like dark Sci-fi mysteries? Then you can try the riveting drama Sorry For Your Loss starring Elizabeth Olsen, Kelly Marie Tran, and Jovan Adepo. Olson plays Leigh Shaw, a young widow dealing with the fallout after her husband’s sudden death.
No matter your tastes, there is a high-quality TV show for you on Facebook Watch. Check out the Facebook Watch Show Page to see all the shows available on Facebook Watch.
