Los Angeles Times

Facebook Inc. is pushing into the market for original streaming video series, announcing a platform through which TV-style shows can be uploaded and viewed. The social media giant announced Wednesday that its new platform, Watch, will be available on mobile, desktop and laptop apps to a limited group of people in the U.S. before expanding to all users. Facebook said each series on Watch would be made up of episodes -- live or recorded -- that follow a storyline or theme. The platform will allow users to comment, react and connect with other users while watching a show, and to subscribe to series so new episodes appear in a personalized "Watchlist." Some shows "will be made by professional creators, and others from regular people in our community," Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said in a post on the social network.
