Facebook has launched its own video hub called Watch

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.
