according to Facebook thinks you need more of its app in your life, so it’s starting to roll out a new TV-centric app for set-top boxes like Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, as well as the Apple TV.
The new app will begin launching over the next few weeks, and will offer Facebook users a new way to digest video content from their favorite content creators.
But we sure are curious to see how Facebook continues to develop its video content strategy moving forward.
As reported earlier by Recode, Facebook is also looking to pivot away from paying publishers from posting live video and instead encouraging content creators to post longer, premium video content.
While there’s no denying that videos dominate the news feed these days, we’re not sure if Facebook on TV is a top priority for most people.

Facebook on Tuesday announced it was rolling out apps to allow people to view videos posted on the social network on connected televisions.
Facebook also said it was modifying video playback for users, with sound to play automatically unless users silence their devices.

The move could be a small step toward what some reports say is a more ambitious video plan by Facebook to compete with Google-owned YouTube or even with streaming services such as Netflix.
