CBS has a great lineup of late-night talk shows and clips from these shows often get a lot of traction on YouTube. That’s why it’s not surprising to see them pop up on Facebook’s Watch platform. Facebook Watch is a new platform for videos on Facebook that the world’s largest social network launched in August last year.
Launched in August 2017, Facebook Watch is described as a new platform for shows on Facebook. It’s personalized to help users discover new shows that are organized around what their friends and communities are watching.
Facebook Watch was first rolled out to a limited group of people in the United States. The social network said that it would then release the experience to more people gradually. Facebook Watch was later rolled out broadly to people in the United States.
CBS has added short-form content from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden to Facebook Watch. Users will be able to watch these clips on Facebook’s platform whenever they want.
The terms of this deal have not been disclosed by CBS and Facebook. At this point in time, CBS isn’t producing any original content for the Watch platform. It’s merely distributing clips from its shows that can also be found on other platforms like YouTube.
