Facebook[3] Watch is a video-on-demand service that was launched by the redes sociais[2] giant, Facebook, in August 2017. Initially available to a select group of U.S. users, it was subsequently made accessible to all American users and eventually achieved global coverage by August 2018. The service offers a diverse range of content, including short and long-form entertainment, and licensed content from notable companies such as 20th Century Fox Television[4]. With a dedicated budget for content creation[1], Facebook Watch utilizes ad-break revenue, with 45% retained by Facebook and the remaining 55% given to partners. Its video offerings are predicted to drive significant revenue, attracting over 1.25 billion monthly visitors as of September 2020. Facebook Watch’s impact extends beyond its revenue potential, with the capacity to alter the digital content landscape and compete with other streaming services.
