Facebook Getting Closer To Launching “Video”

Facebook are apparently close to launching their own shows very soon. According to Bloomberg, Facebook’s new Video section is dues to go live in mid-August. Facebook have reportedly been asking partners to turn in their first episodes of projects, however some are taking a bit longer than expected and this may cause even further delays (it was supposed to go live in June)

Facebook haven’t confirmed the launch themselves yet, but it hasn’t been keeping this project a secret. In 2016 they hired College Humor co-founder Ricky Van Veen who admitted that Facebook were looking at original scripted/unscripted content. As well as teaming up with media companies to produce inexpensive productions such as YouTube videos and big budget productions to compete with HBO, Netflix and the likes.
