Facebook wants to provide their users with an easier way to watch video. On August 9, the social media giant showed off a new program called Watch, with which users can watch videos curated and created by large companies or individual users who work independently.

Watch will feature a variety of videos broken down into categories to make it easy for a viewer to find something that interests them. Any live or recorded video that goes on Watch will be listed as an episode to make following a specific creator easier for the user. These videos will vary from live broadcasts of sports games to Q&A sessions. To help some of the newer programs start out, Facebook provided funding to a handful of creators in the community to create episodic video series.

Only a limited number of users in the United States have access to Watch currently, but Facebook will make it more accessible at undisclosed time intervals.
