Facebook launches original video content in redesigned Watch tab

Facebook launches original video content in redesigned Watch tab

But with Watch only available to a limited number of people, analysts say questions remain about whether people will be tuning into these shows on Facebook. Nas Daily publishes a daily show where he makes videos together with his fans from around the world. Each episode features a new child, a new chef, and a new recipe.

Facebook says the Watch tab will feature content created to "engage fans and community", including videos from popular vloggers and online personalities.

Though to date some key music industry execs have been willing to cut Facebook some slack - despite it being very late to the licensing party - because of the way videos pop up in each user's feed, meaning that [a] it feels much more like a marketing platform and [b] it doesn't really compete head-on with Spotify and Apple Music et al, because it's not so easy to go in and demand and organise specific tracks. Watch is basically the redesigned Video tab which is already available to US users.

"So there will be hundreds of shows at launch, and we'll hopefully scale to thousands".

It was reported then that the company spent over 100 million United States dollars to fund original video content channels from celebrities, digital video creators, and media companies.

According to Facebook, "Our goal is for Watch to be a platform for all creators and publishers to find an audience, build a community of passionate fans, and earn money for their work".

Further, in order to help the users keep up with the shows that they follow, Watch has created a 'Watchlist'.

There were no restrictions on episode length, with the requirement being the shows lasted between two and 240 minutes an episode, one source said. Labels and publishers insist that they only ever agree to the terms enjoyed by the Google company because the aforementioned safe harbour results in rights owners having a greatly weakened negotiating hand when deal making with YouTube.
