Facebook now allows users to watch Web-based TV channels directly within Facebook, through an app. The service is all free, FreeCast.com, the service provider, said.
FreeCast did not specify any channels but said the service includes “content originates from numerous sources around the world, such as TV and cable networks, YouTube, Vimeo, movie channels and radio stations — all major content distributors.”
The revenue will stream from display advertising, not video advertising, Media Post reported.
Facebook users can opt in for getting alerts when the new contents they are interested are available.
Apart from Facebook, FreeCast recently launched as a program guide targeting users’ networks and videos that are free.
